Description

Eight Step Recovery: Using the Buddha's Teachings to Overcome Addiction
Valerie Mason-John and Dr. Paramabandhu Groves

Human nature has an inbuilt tendency towards addiction. All of us can struggle with this tendency, but for some it can destroy their lives. Fortunately, recovery is widespread too. What can the Buddha's teachings offer us in our recovery from addiction? They offer an understanding of how the mind works, tools for helping a mind vulnerable to addiction, and ways to overcome addictive and obsessive behaviour, cultivating a calm, clear mind without anger and resentments.

Whether you are struggling to stay off heroin or with obsessive thinking, the Eight Steps here take you away from addictive tendencies to discover a fulfilling way of living.

“‘The Buddha was in recovery’. Taking this bold statement as a starting point, this wonderful book shows how we are all addicted to aspects of life and can all benefit from training our minds and hearts to be free of the tyranny of compulsion. The Mindfulness-Based Addiction Recovery (MBAR) programme draws on a wide range of the Buddha’s practical, yet deeply profound, teachings. Over the eight steps you are given a priceless gift — the possibility to gain mastery over your mind and heart and find freedom.” - Vidyamala Burch, founder and co-director of Breathworks, author of Mindfulness for Health

A useful guide
I don’t refer to myself as a Buddhist, but the teachings of this tradition have been a great help to me over the years. One of the nice things about this book is it takes some of this wisdom, and divides it into actionable steps to improve our life following addiction. This may be of help to those who just don’t have the time or motivation to deeply investigate Buddhism and are looking for some practical advice. These Eight Steps can also be a useful guide for practicing Buddhists who want to apply these teachings more fully in their recovery.
