Buddhism and Twelve Step Recovery

Center City, MN

DARC 2019 Weekend Retreat Banner

Buddhism and the Twelve Steps share a deep connection. Each is a path of freedom from suffering. They are for people of all religions and nonreligions, and they value community, individual empowerment and a deep connection to something vast and good. This retreat is for those new to or deeply familiar with Buddhism. We will use teachings, dialogue and meditation to cultivate our capacity for a joyful, compassionate engagement with life on life's terms, or as we say in Zen, life "as it is."


Fill out the perliminary registration form and we will contact you with final details.
