From Hungry Ghost To Being Human – Foundations of Awakening & Recovery with Vince Cullen

Online – Zoom

From Hungry Ghost To Being Human

A series of online talks and discussions running over 8-weeks and based on the main themes in the free ‘From Hungry Ghost To Being Human’ booklet.

Organised by Hungry Ghost Retreats

No fee – by donation Dana

You are welcome to attend one or more, or all of these talks but you must register once in advance by clicking here.


All sessions will start promptly at 7.30 pm UK time.

Avoidable-suffering is universal and takes many forms, however, this series of talks may be of particular interest to anyone currently struggling with the three fires of Cravings, Aversions and Confusions.

For me, these are the ‘foundations’ of awakening and recovery.  I say awakening and recovery but they are really one, and the same thing. These ‘foundations’ are the principles and practices that I wish someone had told me 23-years ago when I first woke up to living life without intoxicants.

Each session will start with a 15-minute meditation and will last about 60-minutes including Q&A and sharing, but we can be flexible about the duration until we know what works for everyone.

You are welcome to attend one or more, or all of these talks but you must register once in advance by clicking here –

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the talks.

PLEASE NOTE – To reach as many people as possible across continents and time-zones, these talks will be recorded after which video and audio will be made available online.

The talks are offered freely with an open mind, with open hands and with an open heart. This follows the Buddhist tradition of Dana (the cultivation and practise of the virtue of generosity) where you are invited to contribute financially to the teachings based on your individual income and the value that you place on what has been offered. Vince’s livelihood and the future of ‘Hungry Ghost’ retreats are dependent on the generosity of Dana.

The offering of Dana is optional and voluntary. Dana can be offered any time via PayPal at
