Fueled by the music of revolution, anger, fear, and despair, we dyed our hair or shaved our heads ... Eating acid like it was candy and chasing speed with cheap vodka, smoking truckloads of weed, all in a vain attempt to get numb and stay numb. This is the story of a young man and a generation of angry youths who rebelled against their parents and the unfulfilled promise of the sixties. As with many self-destructive kids, Noah Levine's search for meaning led him first to punk rock, drugs, drinking, and dissatisfaction. But the search didn't end there. Having clearly seen the uselessness of drugs and violence, Noah looked for positive ways to channel his rebellion against what he saw as the lies of society. Fueled by his anger at so much injustice and suffering, Levine now uses that energy and the practice of Buddhism to awaken his natural wisdom and compassion. While Levine comes to embrace the same spiritual tradition as his father, bestselling author Stephen Levine, he finds his most authentic expression in connecting the seemingly opposed worlds of punk and Buddhism. As Noah Levine delved deeper into Buddhism, he chose not to reject the punk scene, instead integrating the two worlds as a catalyst for transformation. Ultimately, this is an inspiring story about maturing, and how a hostile and lost generation is finally finding its footing. This provocative report takes us deep inside the punk scene and moves from anger, rebellion, and self-destruction, to health, service to others, and genuine spiritual growth.

Merging Buddhist mindfulness practices with the Twelve Step program, this updated edition of the bestselling recovery guide One Breath at a Time will inspire and enlighten you to live a better, healthier life. Many in recovery turn to the Twelve Steps to overcome their addictions, but struggle with the spiritual program. But what they might not realize is that Buddhist teachings are intrinsically intertwined with the lessons of the Twelve Steps, and offer time-tested methods for addressing the challenges of sobriety. In what is considered the cornerstone of the most significant recovery movement of the 21st century, Kevin Griffin shares his own extraordinary journey to sobriety and how he integrated the Twelve Steps of recovery with Buddhist mindfulness practices. With a new foreword by William Alexander, the author of Ordinary Recovery, One Breath at a Time takes you on a journey through the Steps, examining critical ideas like Powerlessness, Higher Power, and Moral Inventory through the lens of the core concepts of Buddhism--the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, mindfulness, loving-kindness, and more. The result is a book that presents techniques and meditations for finding clarity and awareness in your life, just as it has for thousands of addicts and alcoholics.

Bestselling author and renowned Buddhist teacher Noah Levine adapts the Buddha's Four Noble Truths and Eight Fold Path into a proven and systematic approach to recovery from alcohol and drug addiction—an indispensable alternative to the 12-step program. While many desperately need the help of the 12-step recovery program, the traditional AA model's focus on an external higher power can alienate people who don't connect with its religious tenets. Refuge Recovery is a systematic method based on Buddhist principles, which integrates scientific, non-theistic, and psychological insight. Viewing addiction as cravings in the mind and body, Levine shows how a path of meditative awareness can alleviate those desires and ease suffering. Refuge Recovery includes daily meditation practices, written investigations that explore the causes and conditions of our addictions, and advice and inspiration for finding or creating a community to help you heal and awaken. Practical yet compassionate, Levine's successful Refuge Recovery system is designed for anyone interested in a non-theistic approach to recovery and requires no previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism or meditation.

In his new book, Stephen Levine, author of the perennial best-seller Who Dies?, teaches us how to live each moment, each hour, each day mindfully--as if it were all that was left. On his deathbed, Socrates exhorted his followers to practice dying as the highest form of wisdom. Levine decided to live this way himself for a whole year, and now he shares with us how such immediacy radically changes our view of the world and forces us to examine our priorities. Most of us go to extraordinary lengths to ignore, laugh off, or deny the fact that we are going to die, but preparing for death is one of the most rational and rewarding acts of a lifetime. It is an exercise that gives us the opportunity to deal with unfinished business and enter into a new and vibrant relationship with life. Levine provides us with a year-long program of intensely practical strategies and powerful guided meditations to help with this work, so that whenever the ultimate moment does arrive for each of us, we will not feel that it has come too soon.

Hardcore Zen

Zen, plain and simple, with no BS. This is not your typical Zen book. Brad Warner, a young punk who grew up to be a Zen master, spares no one. This bold new approach to the "Why?" of Zen Buddhism is as strongly grounded in the tradition of Zen as it is utterly revolutionary. Warner's voice is hilarious, and he calls on the wisdom of everyone from punk and pop culture icons to the Buddha himself to make sure his points come through loud and clear. As it prods readers to question everything, Hardcore Zen is both an approach and a departure, leaving behind the soft and lyrical for the gritty and stark perspective of a new generation. This new edition will feature an afterword from the author.

Clinical Dharma: A Path for Healers and Helpers is the result of Dr. Steve's over 25 years experience with Buddhist mindfulness practice and as many years as an educator and a therapist. In that time he has seen how so many of his colleagues in the helping professions (and fellow avocational helpers) suffer above and beyond what is tolerable, consequently burning out in one way or another. Clinical Dharma provides an answer to this dilemma: Develop your own practice, and then continue your work as a helper from the foundation of the 4 Noble Truths and the 8 Fold Path of the Buddha. This book takes you through all 4 Noble Truths and all the factors of the Eight Fold Path to introduce the beginner and enhance the understanding of those with experience in developing a Buddhist mindfulness practice that allows for a more sustainable life in the helping and healing professions. Those who are avocational caregivers will also benefit from the same information and practice. Clinical Dharma can provide a path to a wide variety of helpers -- therapists, doctors, nurses, yoga teachers, social justice workers, non-profit administrators, sponsors in 12 step programs, massage therapists, educators, podcast hosts -- anyone engaged in the framework of helping and/or healing. "Dr. Stephen Dansiger's work with Clinical Dharma is exactly what the helping professions need: A practical, non-pretentious volume on the heart and soul of Buddhist teaching delivered in a manner that is relevant to the modern times. Stephen is the ideal person to take up this mantle. With a strong background in Buddhist practice and a cutting-edge, trauma-focused understanding of clinical life, Steve shares with you a practical guide for embarking on mindfulness-infused practice. If you are a long-time practitioner, you will gain refreshed insight on how to deepen your practice and be more effective at sharing it with others in your work, your community, and in your life." --Jamie Marich, Ph.D., author of Dancing Mindfulness: A Creative Path to Healing and Transformation and several other books on trauma and addiction; Founder, The Institute for Creative Mindfulness "A roadmap to alleviate suffering? Yes, please! Thank you Dr. Dansiger for giving us a clear and non dogmatic approach to a better understanding of our humanity, patterns and habits." - Nina Siemaszko, ERYT-500, Certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor "Dr. Dansiger took his love of the Dharma and his passion for psychotherapy and the world of mental health, and created an amazing read -- not only for clinicians, but for all." - Dr. Josh Lichtman, Board Certified Psychiatrist, Medical Director, Refuge Recovery Centers, Clinical Instructor, UCLA School of Medicine
