On May 4th Tara Bailey, who some of you will have known as a congregation member of Reading Priory, was ordained by Rev. Master Daishin. She received the name Houn Kojo which means Bright Rising. Let us offer her our congratulations and very best wishes for her future training as she becomes a novice monk.
She was ordained alongside Shooie Lucas who was named Houn Kanshin, which means Patient Dragon. Let us offer similar best wishes also as he embarks on this important stage of training.
