Chair Handover Ceremony
Mon 13th May : 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Join us as we say farewell to Arthavadin as the Centre’s Chair, and welcome Silabodhi as our new Chair. Our President, Arthapriya, will lead an evening of rejoicings and ritual to mark the handover.
If you’d like to bring Arthavadin a gift or make a financial contribution to help him as he enters this new stage of his life, then they’ll be an opportunity to do that on the night. If you’re unable to come in person but would like to offer a gift to Arthavadin – financial or otherwise – then you can do that via reception.No need to book, just turn up a few minutes before we start.
Who is the event for?It’s for Order members, Mitras and Centre regulars who have completed a Buddhism Going Deeper course. Please get in touch if you’re not sure.
