How many of us have struggled to stop bad habits, even when we want to? We have all known someone who has struggled with addiction, but what about our compulsion to check our iPhones? Is addiction just a part of the spectrum of human condition? Can it truly ever end? Join us for a special event with two spiritual teachers who will discuss drug use, addiction, and recovery through the lens of the spiritual path. They will discuss what spirituality and humanism have to offer the recovery field, and humans who want to change their lives.
