Thursday Night Practice With Erin Treat | Celebration and Ceremony to Welcome Kathryn as Senior Community Dharma Leader

April 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Dear Friends,

We at Albuquerque Insight Meditation Center are delighted to announce that Kathryn Turnipseed has agreed to serve as Senior Community Dharma Leader for our community, with mentorship from Erin Treat, our Guiding Teacher.  Kathryn completed the Community Dharma Leader training program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in 2012, and she has a long history of service to our sangha in many capacities.

In this role, Kathryn will offer meditation practices, teachings on wisdom and compassion, and inclusive community building. We envision this new leadership role as supporting our vision of the sangha as a true refuge for all who seek liberation and healing through the Buddha’s path of awakening.

Please join us for a heartfelt ceremony and community celebration as we welcome Kathryn into her new role. During the Thursday evening sit April 26, we will gather with Guiding Teacher Erin Treat to mark this auspicious event for our sangha.

Tea and treats to follow.

Dear Friends,

I am writing to personally invite you to join us on Thursday, April 26th, for a special ceremony and celebration during community practice at 6:30pm.

With great confidence and joy, I along with the AIMC Board and community, will welcome Kathryn Turnipseed as Senior Community Dharma Leader (SCDL). This role marks a turning point for AIMC and its developing vision of the sangha, our heartfelt dharma community.

As SCDL, Kathryn will build from her history of dharma service to AIMC and deepen her support of the sangha as a whole and individual community members. For countless generations, ritual and ceremony has brought communities together to mark significant passages in life.

Please join me on Thursday to mark this beautiful and auspicious step forward for our community of AIMC and to offer your blessing.

Yours in the dharma,
Erin Treat
AIMC Guiding Teacher
