Charlotte’s Ordination Send-Off

April 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm BST

A special evening wishing farewell to Charlotte as she leaves for her much delayed Ordination retreat.

Ordination is a significant and powerful ceremony for those wanting to commit to living by the teachings of the Buddha, who taught that human suffering can be addressed through awakening. To signify her commitment to ‘going forth’ along this path, as part of her Ordination, Charlotte will receive a new Buddhist name to mark her transition into becoming a Dharmacharini, or “one who fares in the Dharma”.

So to see her on her way, in this informal evening we’ll all have an opportunity to rejoice in Charlotte’s good qualities, and wish her well with a leaving ritual.

All welcome, especially any of Charlotte’s family and friends.

Approximate programme
7.00 – welcome
7.15 – rejoicings
8.00 – break
8.15 – leaving ritual
