This week on The One You Feed we have Kevin Griffin.
Kevin Griffin is a Buddhist author, teacher, and innovator in the field of addiction treatment. The insight and intimacy of his teaching have made him a leader in the mindful recovery movement.
He is the author of the classic, One Breath at a Time, which is one of the first books about blending mindfulness and 12 step recovery. He recently released a workbook based on those teachings . His most recent book, A Burning Desire: Dharma God and The Path of Recovery, deals with the concept of a higher power through a Buddhist lens.
