Guest Speaker – Kathryn Yew
In the Spirit of Rains Retreat: May the Doors and Refuge of the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha Always Remain Open. Kathryn will share her lived experience of exploring the Maha Mangala (Greatest Blessings) and Metta (Loving-Kindness) Suttas, including poetry readings from Shakespeare, mystic poet Khalil Gibran and Acknowledgement of Country by Dr Gavi Ansara. In returning to the foundations of her root causes and conditioning, finding connection with her ancestral heartbeats has brought more peace and strength of clarity. She hopes to share the hope and quiet resilience that she has gathered within a troubled, busy world. May all beings be happy and well.
Trained in Early Childhood Education and Family Therapy, Kathryn is a career nanny experienced with over 30 long-term positions in families’ homes. She is Well-Being Director and performer for Perth Playback Theatre, a troupe of improvised actors that have been described as “reflective empathy” for people’s everyday stories. She also supports the financial and personal empowerment of local and global females through Western Australia’s division of Business and Professional Women (BPW) and the philanthropic giving-circle 100 Women. Dignity, humanity and the warmth of community spirit make her heart sing, through rain and shine.
