“Glimpses of Beauty” – A Kum Nye Retreat with Maura Sills and Cheryl Allen

During our sacred retreat time together we will enquire into the depth, mystery and enchantment of beauty and the dignity of all human beings.  
As we become more present and attuned to “seeing without looking” beauty reveals. The wisdom of the heart free of veils reveals our truer non separate nature allowing us glimpses of beauty through the “seeing” of the undefended heart.
