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.
We offer free streaming dharma talks three times each month.
1st Mondays: John Tarrant
4th Mondays: Rachel Boughton
4th Wednesdays: David Weinstein
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.
