I suffered so much in my childhood that I became addicted to drugs at a very young age. At 17 years old, while incarcerated in a juvenile detention center, I began to meditate. For the last 30 years I have been practicing primarily in the Theravada tradition. I began teaching dharma almost 20 years ago with the encouragement and support of my teachers, Jack Kornfield and Ajahn Amaro, and my father, and in 2007 I founded Against The Stream Buddhist Meditation Society. I also began to integrate my Buddhist path with working with those facing addiction, and in 2014 I created Refuge Recovery, a Bud- dhist approach to treating addiction. As for my personal life, I have two children, ages five and eight, and they are awesome. ♦ JAKOBLAGERSTEDT LION’S ROAR | JANUARY 2018 33 CULTURE • LIFE • PRACTICE
