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 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.  It is a gift of spacious awareness and self compassion to yourself, as you engage in an undistracted period of deep listening, nourishing, and connecting with the divine power of healing that is within you. 

We all need places of peace, beauty and sacredness to go to, where we can play and pray, discover and recover, and allow nature to give us healing and strength to our bodies, hearts and souls.

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.  

In the silence of retreat,  the songs of your inner life’s journey will naturally become a source of healing, sacredness and renewal.  

The Components of Quan Yin Healing Retreats:

Whether your retreat is for a few days or for a longer period, whether on your own or within a safe, intimate group of retreatants, and depending on the needs of participants, a typical retreat day will 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
  • 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
  • Sacred music and the Dances of Universal Peace to tune yourself to love, harmony and beauty in the wholeness of who you are. 

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. 

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 –
