Buddhist Chaplaincy Speaker Series: The Nature of Suffering – Addiction and the Four Truths with Kevin Griffin

Saturday, December 7 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am US Pacific Time

Registration Opens Soon

The Four Noble Truths describe the process of addiction and recovery: suffering, clinging, letting go, and the path. We’ll use the discourse Setting the Wheel of Dhamma in Motion, the Dhammacakkhapavattana Sutta, to explore these connections and their implications.
