KTD is developing a vital recovery community, and in the year since Bill Alexander and Lama Losang's initial Addiction course last year, there has been a groundswell of interest and application, including a regular AA meeting at the Monastery.
We thank Bill and Lama Losang for their continuing efforts and energy toward a Recovery Program at KTD, and hope they will be continuing their efforts to bring sanity and sobriety many years into the future!

Lama Tsultrim Yeshe: Healing the Emotions
Lama Tsultrim Yeshe's most recent teaching on Healing The Emotions: Grief, Loss and Pain was greatly appreciated;he will teach again, this December 20-22, this time on the topic of forgiveness and purification.
When Lama Yeshe was a prison chaplain, he would often hear inmates say "I wish I could forgive myself" or "I wish my family would forgive me." This program is inspired by what he learned about how to forgive yourself, have those whom you have hurt forgive you, and to forgive those toward whom you harbor anger and resentment.
