Do you have links to the UK? If you are interested in developing the ideas proposed at this conference by helping to create a regional Buddhist Recovery Network movement in the UK, we want to hear from you. As a first step, an electronic mailing list has been set up to promote discussion and sharing of ideas. If you want to subscribe to this mailing list, please visit:
