Saturday, October 22 - Book Signing & Half Day Clinical Dharma Retreat

Often in the recovery community and in other healing communities one is instructed to “put the oxygen mask on yourself before helping others in the cabin.” Clinical Dharma workshops and retreats are designed to assist those in the helping professions to take care of others while also taking care of themselves. Through retreat practice pointed at the issues and concerns of professional helpers, as well as workshops and classes that help helpers understand the usefulness and power of Buddha’s 4 Noble Truths and the 8 Fold Path, participants grow in understanding about the importance of self-care; get real life skills related to that self care; grow in understanding of the teachings of the Buddha and how they relate to providing care for others; and become able to translate their retreat experiences and workshop lessons into an improved ability to facilitate healing, and develop a practice and way of life that feeds and informs their own personal path.

These retreats and workshops are geared to professional healers of all kinds, while they will also apply to those who are helping and healing others without it being their vocation.
