#47 – Is Racism An Addiction?

ft. Vimalasara, Holly Whitaker, Seiho Morris, Richard Schwartz, Jessica Hoppe, & Kevin Griffin

https://www.patreon.com/buddhistrecoverynetwork This topic is so incredibly important for us in recovery. Doing anti racist work is an integral part of our healing, especially in Buddhist Recovery where we aim to cause less harm. How can we do that without exploring how to be an anti racist and by learning how to not perpetuate the racism inherent in our society? AntiRacism work IS recovery work, and if you don't realize that, you are practicing spiritual bypassing and spiritual materialism. You’re holding yourself back from reaching the next step in your recovery journey. This episode is long, but that's because the topic needs that much time to explore. Listen till the end, it keeps getting better.

Trauma & Addiction

"I have worked in mental health for the last 12 years, which is where I saw the need for sexual education and sexual trauma support.I have a MS in Health Psychology. This has led to my passion for assisting and supporting those that are sexual assault survivors and those without access to comprehensive sex education. My compassion and passion for these populations has pushed me to continue building safe spaces for clientele, sharing education, and supporting their mental spaces." - https://traumaqueen.love/

#40 – Breaking Free of Habits

ft. Martine Batchelor

https://www.patreon.com/buddhistrecoverynetwork During this talk Martine will look at the habits that bind us and stop our potential for wisdom and compassion manifesting fully. She will explore the meditative tools found in the Vipassana tradition like mindfulness of the breath, sounds and feeling tones to show how we can engage creatively with our habits and transform them into positive functions. When we break free from the habits that limit us, a new world of possibilities opens up. Negative patterns of mind may manifest as fear, avoidance, depression, addiction, judgment of self or other, and any of a host of other physical, mental, or psychological forms.
