The Joy of Recovery: Recovery Doesn’t Have to be a Drag

February 23 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Dr. Vimalasara Valerie Mason-John and Shahara Godfrey

Open to all – a retreat for anyone who has or is struggling with addictive, compulsive, obsessive behaviours. For anyone who wants more of a peaceful, quiet mind.

Join us in this day long, and lean into the fruits of having freedom from the prison of our minds. Joy is the third stage of the spiral path. The first is suffering, and those of us with addictions and compulsive, obsessive behaviours know about suffering. So there is hope, where there is suffering, faith can arise, and where there is faith joy can arise.

Together we will meditate, chant mantra’s and experience some joy.

Cost: There is no registration fee for attending this event, nor most EBMC events. However, EBMC is not independently funded. The Center and the teachers will be sustained only by your voluntary donations (the practice of generous giving, or “dana”). Please donate generously, in proportion to your ability:

* Either online (you will be offered an opportunity during the online registration process to donate to EBMC; the teachers will not receive any part of this online donation).
* Or at the event, in the two baskets at EBMC, one for the Center, the second for the Teacher.

Thank you for your generosity. EBMC will be only be sustained through our collective generosity.

Fragrance-free: In order to protect the health of community members with environmental illness, please do not wear fragranced products (including “natural” fragrances) or clothes laundered in fragranced products to EBMC.
