In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: A Day Retreat for those in Recovery
November 7, 10-3 pm

It’s natural for us to seek comfort from the pain in our lives. In doing so we often develop strong habits that are largely unconscious and can lead to varying degrees of obsession, compulsion and addiction. This is known in Buddhism as the realm of Hungry Ghosts – where we can never be satisfied even when we are surrounded by enough.

The Buddhist Path offers practical and profound teachings that can help us see the truth of our human predicament and allow us to disentangle ourselves from addictive habits that keep us trapped in the cycle of craving.

On this day retreat we will work together to identify the causes and conditions of our habits, through meditation, sharing experiences, and studying relevant Buddhist texts.

This program will be led by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order
