Buddhist meditation practices and teachings have become important elements for many people in addiction recovery programs. Kevin Griffin has been teaching on this intersection of Buddhism and addiction recovery for over fifteen years. On this special evening, Kevin will explore key themes relevant to people dealing with any form of addiction—whether substance or process-oriented addictions—and will make meaningful connections to core Buddhist teachings on mindfulness, compassion, and ethics. Kevin will lead a meditation practice during the talk and will be signing his books after the talk. A variety of Kevin’s books will be available for purchase.
