Meditation And Addiction: The Way Through A Day Seminar in London on 30 October

A seminar which brings together a variety of perspectives to show how meditation can help in the prevention and treatment of addiction.
Oct. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Addiction is often the response of a self that has been deeply wounded.  Our culture itself provokes and caters for addictive patterns of behaviour.  Can meditation help us to find a way through our addictions?  There is increasing evidence to demonstrate the benefits of meditation in the prevention and treatment of addiction. “The neurobiological findings support the hypothesis that meditation enhances awareness and cultivation of alternatives to mindless, compulsive behaviour.”  (Marlatt, 2002).

Through talks, workshops and discussions, this Meditatio Seminar offers the opportunity to share these experiences and to apply the practical discipline of meditation in the area of recovery.
