PostSubject: Rev. Master Meian has been elected as the new Abbess   Fri Jun 18, 2010 8:42 pm

The election was held June 17th.

From the Abbey's website:

"We are pleased to announce that Rev. Master Meian Elbert has been elected by the community of Shasta Abbey to be their Abbess. We are grateful to her for being willing to accept this significant responsibility.

Rev. Master Meian was ordained in 1977 and received Dharma Transmission in 1979 from Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett. She was named a Master of the Order by Rev. Master Jiyu in 1989. She was chaplain to Rev. Master Jiyu for more than 15 years, and has served the community as Vice Abbess, Chief Cook, Chief Precentor, and Novice Master. Both the lay and monastic communities have benefited from her Dharma Talks, the extended retreats she has led, and her writings. She also served as Executive Secretary of the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives.

Rev. Master Meian was elected by the resident Shasta Abbey monastic community on June 17, 2010. She will be officially installed as Abbess in a public ceremony to be held in the future. She has asked Rev. Master Daishin Yalon to be Vice- Abbot, and he has accepted.

For further information please contact the Prior at Shasta Abbey."

http://SZBA.org
Am I missing the mention or is there no connection? royfoto
