6/14/2015 – Addiction

Wendy Guided our reflections this morning, anchoring the discussion in Tara Brach’s talk “Freedom from Addiction.”  As Brach sees it, Addiction is a version of the Tanha or Thirst or Craving that the Buddha identified as the cause of suffering in the Second Noble Truth.  We reflected on addictions from email checking to substance abuse, and explored the relation of psychology to dharma.
