Loving Kuan Yin in the 21st Century ~Hosted by Gwynne Warner

Loving Kuan Yin in the 21st Century: The Way of Tender Presence + Fierce Compassion

A One Day Retreat at Heaven + Earth Retreat Center with 10,000 Blessings Feng Shui

“We are, together, all of us, the sparkling flashes of light on her ocean of love. We are together the flashing of innumerable stars on her mantle. We are not alone. We are together—with and within—her.” {Clarissa Pinkola Estes}

Beloved throughout Asia, Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy and Bodhisattva of Compassion, is an inexhaustible wellspring of love.

Please join me, women and men, for a one day retreat where we’ll gather to share Her way of tender presence and fierce compassion. 

As our hearts break open again and again in our world and times, loving Kuan Yin in Her emanations such as...

She Who Hears the Cries of the World
The One Who Dispels all Fears
She Who Saves People from Suffering and Hardships
The Boundless Ocean of Light
The All Embracing

is an extraordinary antidote to desensitization, apathy and despair.

Within sacred time and space, experience a deepening of your own personal relationship with The Mother of Mercy. We’ll enjoy…

•Devotional Offerings, Chanting + Dancing
•Healing Ritual with Great Compassion Water + Willow Branch
•Silent, Loving Kindness + Tonglen Meditations
•Divination, Trance Journey + Sacred Theatre
•A Fire Puja
•Taoist Tie Guan Yin + Aloeswood Incense Ceremony
•An Ancient Practice for Protection
•An Anointing Ceremony

We’ll receive Her blessings then return to our own lives, nourished, inspired and empowered by Her strength, protection and mercy, to share those blessings with our loved ones as well as strangers.

“I especially treasure the Kuan Yin vigils as Gwynne shared her music, poetry, ritual and teachings. Her personal spiritual cultivation translates into sweet and profound blessings to all who participated!”
{Maxine Manning|Seattle}

Set in the foothills of the coastal range, this quiet natural oasis of five private acres is nestled beneath a canopy of cedar and fir trees.
