Quan Yin Healing Retreats

Healing is a combination of joy and peace. 
Joy in our relationship with the outside
and peace in our discovery of
the springhead of our being.”
– Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, Sufi mystic –

One of my greatest joys and passion is facilitating healing retreats throughout the year.  Most are given in the beauty and serenity of nature, although some have taken place online during the corona pandemic, when it has not been possible for individuals or groups to meet in person.   

Quan Yin retreats are an invitation to step outside the routine of your daily life’s patterns, duties and problems.  (omit:  It is a gift of) It is a way to give yourself more spacious awareness and self compassion (to yourself), as you engage in an undistracted period of deep listening, body-mind nourishment, and connection with the divine power of healing that is within you. 

During a healing retreat, whether for a few days or a week, you will be guided and  supported in restoring harmony, balance, and life energy on multiple levels of your being.  

Whether your retreat is for individual or small group retreats, a pre-retreat questionnaire is first required to determine your needs and appropriateness of your going on a healing retreat.  

The Components of Quan Yin Healing Retreats

Your Retreat may include:

  • Quan Yin qigong,  a gentle and yet powerful combination of movement and breathwork culled from my many years of practice in various forms of qigong, including medical qigong and qigong  tailored for your specific needs
  • Self-healing practices with sacred sound, breath, light, magnetism and touch
  • Contemplative inquiry to look at possible causes behind the appearance of presenting issues
  • Spiritual healing and meditation to expand your heart and to connect with the Source of all life

The retreat aims to give you practical tools and spiritual practices which you can take home and integrate with any other form of medical care you have chosen to continue working with. 

For individual retreats there will also be a personal follow up session on ZOOM scheduled with you after the retreat.

Healing is the return of the memory of wholeness.  Healing, health, whole and holy all mean inclusiveness.
Body, mind, spirit, environment, relationships, social interactions are all one wholeness, and you’re a part of that one wholeness.
–   Deepak Chopra –
