The New Moon is an auspicious time to call upon
the energy of 
Kuan Yin
 for planting seeds of compassion
to gently embrace ourselves and all of humanity.

Kuan Yin is known as the Bodhisattva of Compassion and Mercy. 

When we call upon Kuan Yin in prayer or meditation, chant her name, and open our hearts to her, she offers us ease, inner strength, compassion for ourselves and others,
 and to manifest noble and wonderful things in our lives.

How to prepare for Metta Practice at home...

  1. Set aside uninterrupted time to focus on this metta practice and your self-healing.

  2. Allow enough time to settle in before practice begins.

  3. Have water or tea available for yourself.

  4. Choose an environment that is pleasant and comfortable to be in and has an area to sit and lie down—with blanket, eye pillow/cloth, yoga mat, floor cushions, a chair that reclines, or couch…whatever works for you. 

  5. Set up a small table/alter or specific area where you can focus on spiritual object(s) meaningful to you.

  6. Include a statue or picture of Kuan Yin, if you have one.

  7. If you like, light a candle. 
    You can also use a small amount of incense, or diffuse some essential oil prior to our practice.

  8. Rest your “thinking mind”. Allow yourself to receive information through all your senses.

     (There will be a recording to refer to, if you want to review anything later.)
