Through meditations, Dharma reflections, use of mantra, ceremony and Core Process Inquiry, we will evoke the Heart of Kuan Yin. Entering stillness and silence we listen into Kuan Yin allowing appropriate response to emerge. Kuan Yin is not male or female, Asian or Western or even Buddhist, but a metaphor for the deepest truth of our own unbreakable hearts connection with the universal heart of wisdom and compassion. A wisdom that springs forth from letting go of the known to align with the knowing of our original wakefulness, and merciful compassion that emerges from the truth of our profound intimacy with all things.
