We are happy to announce that the third issue of Uncertainty Club, our online magazine of Zen and the arts, has been launched into the universe. In the conversational spirit of PZI, the issue will be open for three months to new, lively, creative responses to the koan – Dongchan’s answer to a simple question, “How do you mend?”
PZI is happy to be able to offer free livestreamed dharma talks two times each month.
First Mondays: John Tarrant
Fourth Mondays: Rachel Boughton
A student asked, “When the tree withers and the leaves fall, what is happening?” Yunmen replied, “Body exposed in the Golden Wind.”
Our art card in 2017 features a painting by Jeff Myers and text by John Tarrant on this koan by Yunmen.
Like you, all of us at PZI have been rocked and washed by events of the past year. It is good to support Zen in these times.
Jane Kolleeny of the Garrison Institute recently sat down on film with John Tarrant to discuss the approach to creativity, koans, and meditation that John and the PZI community have developed over the last 30 years.
