In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts:
Close Encounters with Addiction
Webcast of the March 12, 2008 book launch of Dr. Gabor Maté's new book, "In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction", at St. Andrew's Wesley church, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The event, sponsored by Necessary Voices Society, was a fundraiser for the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre and Aboriginal Mother Centre.
In this new book, bestselling writer and physician Gabor Maté looks at the epidemic of addictions in our society, tells us why we are so prone to them and what is needed to liberate ourselves from their hold on our emotions and behaviours
For over ten years Gabor Maté has been the staff physician at the Portland Hotel, a residence and harm reduction facility in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. His patients are challenged by life-threatening drug addictions, mental illness, Hepatitis C or HIV and, in many cases, all four. But if Dr. Maté's patients are at the far end of the spectrum, there are many others among us who are also struggling with addictions. more
