Cultivating Sustainable Recovery from ALL Addiction
Have you ever set a goal or made an intention about a behavior or pattern that no longer serves you – only to after some time find yourself back in it even when you really don’t want to be?
One of my teachers often poses the following question; ‘How can I make my intentions stronger than my dysfunctional patterns?’
This workshop offers a look into western psychology, yogic philosophy and practices, and 12 step program principles to support sustainable recovery from any addictive pattern or behavior. It proposes tools designed to support the understanding and application needed to help our intentions become stronger than our dysfunctional behaviors.
Offered as 2 satsangs and 2 workshops (subject to change)
February 6-8, 2023:
February 6: 8pm evening satsang
February 7: 12pm workshop (90 minutes) and 8pm evening satsang
February 8: 12pm workshop (90 minutes)
All times are in Eastern time zone.
* Satsangs happen daily at the ashram. The evening satsangs start at 8 PM ET and typically conclude somewhere between 9:30 – 10 PM ET. The evening satsangs consist of a 30-minute guided meditation; 15 minutes of kirtan (joyous chanting accompanied by various musical instruments), 45 minutes – 1 hour of lecture or presentation with time for Q & A and discussion; final prayers and the Arati (a beautiful ceremony that involves the waving of a lighted lamp).
