Compassionate Recovery: How to Start a Meeting - Episode 043 of The 12-Step Buddhist Podcast

The thing is, after a few meetings, I'm kind of like, oh my god, it's the same fucking thing. I have no idea how you would recover from a serious addiction without a spiritual experience of some kind, and this is something I've been working on since.
In Episode 043 of The 12-Step Buddhist Podcast, author Darren Littlejohn discusses the principles and practices of Compassionate Recovery, a mindful healing approach for trauma and addictions based on the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhist and Yoga systems. Littlejohn shares a meeting format and how to start a meeting, emphasizing the importance of privacy and respect in meetings. He also delves into ACEs and Western neuropsychology, and the application of scientifically tested training methods.
Littlejohn explores bodhisattva practices, Chenrezig and the Mahayana tradition, the six realms, and surrender and change. This episode offers a thought-provoking and transformative exploration of Compassionate Recovery. As Littlejohn says, 'I have no idea how you would recover from a serious addiction without a spiritual experience of some kind, and this is something I've been working on since.'
