Buddhist Recovery Summit

The Buddhist Recovery Summit in Lacey Washington on October 20-22 was a great success.

The Northwest Dharma Association teamed up with the Buddhist Recovery Network to design a conference/retreat hybrid that included meditation, recovery meetings in different styles, panel discussions, delicious meals, plenty of social time — and a talent show that started out shyly… and then went on into the night! 

The Summit was a reunion of long-time friends and colleagues, teachers and practitioners from Auatralia and New Zealand, Europe and the Americas. 

A statement and invitation coming out of the Summit is posted at the Buddhist Recovery Network website.
