Craving comes in many forms—including desire, aversion, and expectation—and presents us with a false promise of satisfaction that it can never truly deliver.
Mindfulness allows us to counteract our cravings because it changes the way we relate to a craving when it first arises. Through mindful awareness, we begin to see that we can simply "be with" strong impulses without needing to act on them. From a place of internal empowerment, we can become more skillful in our relationship with old habits and offer ourselves true freedom of choice when it comes to difficult urges.
This December, join IMS Teacher Walt Opie for an exploration of craving, and discover the path that leads away from suffering, and moves us closer to freedom.
This Mini Retreat includes guided meditations, dharma talks, and time for sharing and discussion.
All are welcome. This program is offered live and will not be recorded.
