In these overwhelming times, let’s deepen refuge, as well as reconnect with community and our shared roots within the sacred web of life. This will be a time of contemplation and remembrance as we journey through the grief of so much loss and the hope of the human spirit, offering thanks for the beauty of this world.
Within contemplative quietude, supported by calm and insight meditation in a mindful, gentle retreat container, we will draw from teachings and practices that enable timelessness and openings into the heart medicine of love and compassion.
The retreat will source from a synthesis of the Theravāda Elder’s Way and Mahāyāna practices and teachings around Quan Yin’s compassionate Bodhisattva Path. This includes mantras, chanting, and ceremony. The retreat concludes with a Quan Yin Compassion Ceremony. In addition to Dharma talks, meditation instructions, and daily Yoga sessions, there will be small group meetings with the teachers.
