The Work of Recovery

Genko Rainwater

Genko Rainwater

Genko has been working with a new Buddhist approach to recovery from addiction, called Refuge Recovery. Using the Three Refuges, Four Noble Truths, and the Noble Eightfold Path, the approach takes the strengths of the 12-step movement, replaces the Steps with the Path, and increases the emphasis on meditation as a tool for recovery.

Through her work both for herself and with prison inmates, she is discovering connections between addiction and suffering, recovery and healing, as well as new insights into liberation.

This talk was given on Sunday, November 30.
