Meditations, Dreams & the Deepest Teachings
Under the October Moon

An extended online retreat in the PZI Digital Temple
with John Tarrant & Friends

October 4 – 9, 2022  

Door after door opening inside— 

Zazen on Jingting Mountain
The birds have vanished into deep sky.
Now the last cloud drifts away.
We sit together, the mountain and I,
until only the mountain remains. 

—Li Bai

Persimmons in a row on the table, yellow grape leaves climbing, foxes gazing at you, along with the great moon, the everlasting sweetness—we have always been walking together on this way.

Join us for our online Fall Sesshin.  —John Tarrant

Dear PZI Friends —

We come together across oceans and continents with PZI members, teachers, musicians, and those new to PZI. We can discover things together which we could not discover alone. There’s a scholarship fund for PZI members who want to attend and need financial assistance. If you’re not a member, we invite you to join us today! You can read more about this below, and then get in touch with our registrar.

Thank you for all you have offered to PZI during these many months, and these many decades. It’s nice to have each other as we find our way.

—Board President Tess Beasley Sensei & Director John Tarrant Roshi, & All of us at PZI
