    Please join us for a very special occasion.  Acharya Susan Chapman will preside over the Oath Ceremony empowering Ms Mariel Gomez and Dr. Joachim Sehrbrock into their role of Shastri.
     

    Shastri in Sanskrit means “teacher learned in the texts and commentaries.” Shastris are appointed by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and we feel delighted to welcome Joachim and Mariel into their new roles. 
     
    As part of the evening’s celebratory gathering, Acharya Chapman will also share information with us about the Acharya Assembly and Kalapa Garchen she recently attended with the Sakyong.
     
    We will close the evening with a light reception, toasts and good cheer!
