Quan Yin Goddess of Mercy & Compassion

11 am – 12 pm

Quan Yin is the goddess, mercy, compassion, and prosperity. She is a beacon of light and hope for those in need, welcoming prosperity and abundance. She was a Buddhist who earned the right to enter Nirvana after death. While standing at the gates of Paradise, she heard a cry of anguish from the earth below and chose to stay on earth until all beings were free of suffering.

Rosley’s Rocks and Gems invites you to participate in a meditation honoring Quan Yin’s presence every new and full moon. The event will be live-streamed on Facebook @rosleysrocks.

Cycles: Transformation Work for Women

Saturday, August 26 – Sunday, August 27, 2017, 9 am – 5 pm

This deeply personal adventure allows for integration of your particular feminine life journey in all its aspects. You will leave with a greater sense of yourself and your particular journey as woman in this lifetime.

  • Explore your relationship to the main Cycles in a Woman’s life.
  • Discover and restore parts of your life that have gone unacknowledged or unwitnessed.
  • Experience a safe, sacred space to see more clearly where your natural unfolding was interrupted, where aspects of yourself were lost or forgotten, or where important changes in your life were unacknowledged.
  • Explore your relationship to the feminine archetypes in a quiet contemplative space. Visual and spoken pieces support this personal immersion through memory and evocation.
