Dharma Theme: Winter & Silver, Moonlight & Snow – Collected Audio from Winter Sesshin 2022

John Tarrant, PZI Cantor & Musicians, PZI Teachers

A curation of Winter Sesshin dharma talks on a single page, for easy finding and listening. A sesshin is always more than the sum of its parts or its recorded talks. There are morning rituals, greetings, incense passed magically through the screen, the changing light, rich silences, moments of humor, tech gremlins, tears, synchronicities, dogs barking, dreams, and awakenings that we share. It is the timeless play of the universe. As recorded in the PZI Digital Temple, February 1-6, 2022.
