Fr Laurence Freeman, director of the World Community of Christian Meditation, is hosting the forum, called "Sajja: The Vow of Recovery: Christian and Buddhist Perspectives". It will take place at Thamkrabok Monastery on Jan 26 from 8am to 5pm.

Located in Saraburi province's Phra Phutthabat, the monastery is famous for offering herbal detoxification services to drug addicted people from around the world.
