An Undefended Heart: Using Buddhist Practices to Stay Present with our Pain so We Don’t Seek Relief in Addictive Behaviors

This session is from Worldwide Insight’s Healing & Insight series which ran in 2016. This series explored the sharp end of suffering – including addiction in its broadest sense, depression, physical and mental pain, and stress – through the lens of the Buddhist teachings.
