Prajñānītā Stepping Down

Published on Jul 28th 2022, in News

Dear Friends,

It is with regret and sadness that I am letting you know that Prajñānītā will be stepping down this October from her role as Centre Manager, and her more recent roles as Mitra Convenor and Finance Officer. She intends to continue leading study, but will no longer be a member of the Centre Team.

Prajñānītā has worked for the West London Buddhist Centre for over four years, joining the team as a mitra, but soon afterwards receiving her invitation to a three month ordination retreat at Akashavana in Spain. Some of you may have been there for her welcome back evening, a joyous occasion including a very inspiring talk.

It was clear then that Prajñānītā had a gift for embodying and communicating the Dharma and it has been a delight seeing her develop into a very special Dharma teacher. Anyone who has attended classes, courses, study groups or retreats with Prajñānītā will have benefitted by the clarity and depth of her teaching, how she embodies her practice so passionately and wholeheartedly. Whether leading meditation and ritual or communicating key Buddhist teachings, Prajñānītā teaches from her personal practice, sharing insights and experience in a way that engages and inspires others.

Prajñānītā has given so much to the West London Buddhist Centre during the past four years. She is multi-talented, hardworking and highly efficient and whatever she takes on she carries out to a very high standard. Previously the WLBC did not have a Centre Manager and she brought in so many positive changes to the running of the centre while her strong ethical practice and commitment to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha Jewels have contributed so much to the Centre, Team and Sangha. Her love of sangha and practice of spiritual friendship has greatly enriched our community and she has become a dear friend of mine and many other members of the sangha.

Sadhu Prajñānītā, May all blessings be yours!
