RETREAT TO BE HELD ON THE LAND!
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 Theravada Elder’s Way and Mahayana 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.

Sliding Scale: $55-$275. Code KT1S21.
Please Note: This program is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.
Arriving at the end of another intense year, let’s take a moment to pause, reflect, release from what no longer serves, and reorientate our intention for moving forward.
Our time together will open with an optional 1.5-hour Kuan Yin Compassion Ceremony. This practice aligns with the power of the non-dual Kuan Yin heart of deep listening and merciful response. The ceremony will include: a bowing practice, which can be adapted to all bodily capacities, chanting, Dharma reflections, undertaking vows, and an acknowledgement of the harm done to self and others, finishing with a clear intention to realign with the bodhisattva path.
You can also join us after the ceremony. The evening will continue with a Dharma talk, guided meditation, sharing of intentions for going forward, and offering a blessing and prayers for all, while welcoming in the New Year.
All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
