NEW: PZI Talk Live! with Chris Gaffney & Corey Hitchcock

March 9 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free – $10

Hello friends—

Beginning this Tuesday, Chris and Corey of PZI will host a group conversation twice a month. Largely because we thought it would be fun and simultaneously stimulating, in the ways that koan practice provides: full body and deep tissue! Whenever we allow an opportunity for a true meeting, unexpected responses can emerge.

What we’ll be serving—

A gathering in the spirit of PZI Talk, our members google group, but meeting face-to-face online with listening, noticing, and speaking occurring in real time. C & C will introduce topics of interest, wonder, or confusion; our intent being to help ourselves sit up and notice that we are alive.

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.

We’ll invite special guests, report on interspecies communication, encourage creative outbursts, and try to keep the wind in our collective sails. With folks such as yourselves, who knows where we will journey?

Please join us, the only experience necessary is the one you’ve been having.

—Chris Gaffney a.k.a Mr. Crane & Corey Hitchcock a.k.a. Interpreter of the Wild
