Everyone on the Buddhist path is waking up – or in recovery – from greed, from hatred and from delusion; these are the inherent pre-conditions, biases and distortions of all human beings. For some of us these factors manifest in our lives – to a greater or lessor degree – as particular cravings or aversions, and always they are accompanied by an awful lot of confusion!
What’s the difference between the Fifth Precept fellowship and Hungry Ghost retreats?
Fifth Precept Sangha (Fellowship) : is a Peer Led, mutual-help organisation that uses Buddhist mindfulness teachings and practices to help people make a wholehearted recovery from the suffering caused by addictive behaviours. This approach encourages individual commitment to total-abstinence and includes peer led ‘Sit-and-Share’ recovery meetings – www.5th-precept.org
Hungry Ghost Recovery Retreats : are an opportunity to explore some of the principles and practices of the Fifth Precept Organisation (Sangha) approach to recovery, harm reduction and relapse prevention within a retreat setting – www.HungryGhostRetreats.org
