Valerie Mason-John (Vimalasara)
Vimalasara talks about her book (co-authored with Dr. Paramabandho Groves) Eight Step Recovery: Using the Buddha’s Teachings to Overcome Addiction. We can’t avoid suffering if we open our eyes to it. Suffering is all around us. However, freedom from suffering is in front of our eyes too. Some of us, who realize our difficult human predicament, reach a crisis and turn to a spiritual path, faith or religion to deal with the shock. Others turn to an addiction for answers to the meaning of life. Vimalasara speaks to the pain all beings share, and how we deal with that pain.
