Uncertainty Club, Issue 4: Freely I Watch The Tracks of the Flying Birds

We are pleased to announce the publication of the fourth issue of Uncertainty Club, the only known magazine of Zen and the Arts. The theme of the Fall/Winter 2018 issue is a line from an ancient Chinese poet. The line is in our koan curriculum, which means that we meditate with it and see what it offers us, and where it takes us.
