The Passing of Jacqueline Reimer


Our dear friend and dharma sister, Jacqueline Reimer, died May 4, just before sunrise, as the sky was turning a luminous orange-gold.

Jacqueline’s strong, cheerful spirit and quirky sense of humour were undiminished by illness.  In her last days, she was utterly fearless, aware and joyful. What a warrior!  KI KI SO SO!

Jacqueline’s Sukhavati will be held at the Halifax Shambhala Centre on Friday, May 6, at 11 a.m.  You are welcome to attend in person or on Zoom.  If you would like to attend on Zoom, here is the link:

Meeting ID: 844 8848 9236

Passcode: 108108

If you would like to attend in person, registration will be required, since space is limited.  You can register to attend here.

There will be an opportunity to practice with Jacqueline’s body in the main shrine room from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, and from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m. on Friday.  The HSC doors will be open from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Thursday. If you would like to visit at another time, please respond to this email to get a temporary code for the front door.

We will certainly miss Jacqueline!  Along with being a devoted practitioner and a good friend, she was an extremely dedicated volunteer for many years, humbly and cheerfully pitching in whenever and wherever she was needed.

With sadness,

Meg Vigerstad
