2017 GCDR Retreat Schedule
Guan Yin Practice Retreats Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva (or simply “Guan Yin”) represents Great Compassion. Her name literally means Contemplator of the Sounds of the World. She listens deeply to the sounds of all living beings and responds accordingly. From reciting her name, we tap into our own inherent capacity for kindness and compassion. Come join us for one week of intensive recitation and meditation practice in a monastic environment. The daily schedule consists of chanting, walking, bowing, and sitting meditation, as well as discussions and lectures to explain the practice.
