We are delighted that Veronica has been invited on the three-month retreat in Spain, during which she will be ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order. This is a significant, life-changing step for Veronica and also of great significance to the Birmingham sangha as we welcome another female Order member.
Veronica has made a huge contribution to the sangha over the years. You may also know her as someone who creates beautiful textile objects which she has exhibited at the Buddhist Centre and sold to raise money for her ordination retreat. In all this she brings her qualities of kindness, competence and joyful inspiration. Her great love of the Dharma is evident in everything she does.
Veronica is self-employed and the retreat affects her financially in two ways: the cost of the retreat itself plus the cost of not working. Veronica has already saved a significant proportion of the total cost but still needs £3,000 (which includes some money to help her get to her first Order convention in August).
