12StepsToEnlightenmentW

Dorena Rode returns to Davis to give a talk about the steps to permanent happiness based on her book, “The Twelve Steps as a Path to Enlightenment — How the Buddha Works the Steps,” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8, at The Avid Reader. The bookstore is at 617 Second St. in downtown Davis.

The first 20 guests for the talk will receive a free gift, a handmade lavender sachet, with their book purchase.
Rode’s book explains how the spiritual principles embodied in the Twelve Steps (of Alcoholic Anonymous) parallel the Buddhist teachings for reaching ultimate enlightenment.

“This book is a great introduction to the world view of Tibetan Buddhists such as the Dalai Lama,” a news release said. The author “demystifies key concepts such as the six perfections, emptiness, refuge, bodhichitta, renunciation and the development of watchfulness and concentration.”
Rode studied Buddhism with the Asian Classics Institute and meditation with Master Culadasa of Dharma Treasure. She has a Ph.D. in physiology with an emphasis in alternative medicine from UC Davis. For the past 18 years, she has maintained a regular practice of meditation and internal arts. She lives, practices and teaches in Phoenix.
