Event Description

Recovery through the path of Mindfulness

Led by the co-author of Eight Step Recovery - Using The Buddha's Teachings to Overcome Addiction and the co-designer of Mindfulness Based Addiction Recovery 

During this day we will explore the therapeutic benefits of mindfulness. We will look at a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy model, the Vicious Cycle and apply the mindfulness teachings to help us understand, relapse into negative thought patterns and addictive behaviours. I will introduce you to an alternative or complimentary meeting process different from the 12 step model of Alcoholic Anonymous. 
Therapists, Counsellors and other practitioners will go away being able too;
  • A deeper understanding of the relationship between body, feelings, thoughts, thinking,emotions, and how they can trap an individual on the vicious cycle of addiction
  • Know how to deliver the vicious cycle in a group context or in a one to one client therapist relationship
  • Go away with the tools of how to run an 8 Step recovery meeting or enable clients to set up a meeting.
Listen to Vimalasara's Tedx Talk and check out her latest books Detox Your Heart - Meditations on Emotional Trauma and Eight Step Recovery 

Forums: This gathering of those interested in the cross-overs between Buddhism and therapists takes place every couple of months. We generally have a speaker or workshop facilitator. The content of session varies hugely but all are high quality events, suitable for professional as CPD.

Cost £25 including lunch (Tariki students £15)

CPD letters available on demand

Booking: contact courses@tarikitrust.org

This forum will be followed by a retreat on Sunday November 12th.
