“Quan Yin, Heart Of Compassion”
In these times of great human and non-human suffering, we call in the energy of Quan Yin, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. She is the embodiment of loving kindness, and is said to “hear the cries of all beings.” Quan Yin is an East Asian deity associated with compassion as venerated by Mahayana Buddhists. She is commonly known as the “Goddess of Mercy” in English and Gayatri in Hindi. The Chinese name Guanyin is short for Guanshiyin, meaning “[The One Who] Perceives the Sounds of the World.” We journey with Quan Yin to magnify compassion for the world in our hearts, and the hearts of all beings, so we may be guided towards wise action for ourselves, Earth and All Beings.
We begin the evening with a guided relaxation and chakra clearing, inviting in the energy of Quan Yin. This will be followed by group drumming, rattling, moving and sounding. We will then have a guided drum journey and sharing circle.
Come join us for a Powerful, Healing, Heart-Opening Evening.
All are welcome!
