On the evening of Sunday 3rd July we will be meeting at (an unfinished) 17 Walmgate to dedicate the new centre space.
This is an opportunity to take in our new home and to dedicate it to the Three Jewels, create positive conditions within it and to ask for the support and friendship of whatever spirits and devas that may abide in that space.

7.30 Dedication Ceremony followed by the chanting of the Karanya Metta Sutta in pali by Kate and then by everyone else in english, plus a request (via an excerpt from the Ratana Sutta) to the local spirits and devas for friendship and support. 
All this followed by a mantra with an opportunity to make an offering to the Three Jewels. 
The evening will finish with a request to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas for a blessing
