Going Forth: Eight Step Recovery
Siddhartha the prince went forth from his palace, because it was hindering his potential. You could see this palace as a metaphor for the mind. Some of us live in palaces, some of us live in prisons. All of us have to go forth from our palace or prison if we want liberation from our suffering. This is Healing and Insight. Eight Step Recovery is the Buddhist path away from addictions.
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.
