Kirstine is going to be Ordained!

Woman in Lotus Hall

Kirstine Pearson, a well-known and much loved Manchester Mitra has received her invitation to be ordained! She will be ordained on the first of the two eleven-week ordination retreats for women at Akashavana Retreat Centre in Spain, in 2021.

If you don’t know Kirstine personally, she works as a vet, is based in Chorlton, and you may have seen her at the Centre on Thursdays, before the lockdown, cheerfully taking part in the¬† study groups’ Centre cleaning team. She is also part of the team running Tools for Living online on Saturdays.

Her Private Preceptor will be Dayamala, an ex-Chair of our Centre, now living in Cornwall, and Kirstine will be the first person who Dayamala will ordain, so a double cause of celebration! Her Public Preceptor will be Shantivajri.

Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
