I received the following question:

“For people in recovery, a sense of spirituality and self, as well as an honest appraisal of conditioning that has obscured the self, seem to me to be essential. I wonder if you have any more thoughts on this?”

To which I respond:

“You are absolutely correct. In particular, the direct experience of deeper values of the self is profoundly healing in recovery. That is why our meditation can help tremendously.”
