Featured Koan: Zhaozhou's Great Way Is Not Difficult - Blue Cliff Record Case 2

Xiangyan was once asked by a monastic, "What is the Way?"
Xiangyan said, "A dragon singing in a withered tree."
The monastic said, "What does it mean?"
Xiangyan said, "Eyeballs in a skull."
Later, another monastic asked Shishuang Chuyuan, "What is a dragon singing in a dead tree?"
Shishuang said, "It still has joy."

—Xuedou's verse commentary on Blue Cliff Record Case 2

PZI Talk LIVE! On Summer Break

July 27 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

PZI Talk LIVE! is on a summer break…

Chris and Corey return August 24. We hope to see you then!

What is PZI Talk LIVE? This is a gathering in the spirit of our PZI Talk Members google group, but meeting face-to-face online with listening, noticing, and speaking occurring in real time. The only experience necessary is the one you’ve been having. With folks such as yourselves, who knows where we will journey?

—Chris Gaffney aka Mr. Crane, & Corey Hitchcock aka Interpreter of the Wild

We are in accord with the old Chan teachers who believed that conversations with others could be decisive in waking up to our original nature.
