Buddhism and the 12 steps both emphasize cultivating healthy intimacy. In this retreat we will cultivate our capacity for intimacy with:
Something vast, powerful, and good that supports us
Our own values and hearts
Our friends and loved ones.

This retreat is for anyone interested in the healing power of Buddhism and the 12 steps. We will have a few hours of seated and walking meditation, both guided and silent, teachings, and dialogue.  Outside of teachings and dialogue the retreat will be conducted in silence.

Ben Connelly is a Soto Zen teacher and Dharma heir in the Katagiri lineage, with over twenty years experience in the addiction recovery community.  He also teaches mindfulness in a wide variety of secular contexts. Ben is based at Minnesota Zen Meditation Center and travels to teach across the United States.  He is the author for Wisdom Publications of Inside the Grass Hut, Inside Vasubandhu’s Yogacara, and Mindfulness and Intimacy.
