Find Shelter for The Homeless Person

John Tarrant will be in Santa Rosa to teach tonight, Monday evening. He has returned early from teaching in Bhutan because of the fires in Sonoma County. This will be a time to sit together with a koan, to hear and tell stories, to enjoy each other’s company, to feel the time that we share.


“Put Out The Fire Across the River” – Support Our Community Fund

At this time of fire and recovery in Santa Rosa, we at PZI are doing our best to keep our doors for respite, for refuge, for practice. If you would like to help out, please make a donation.
