Featured: PZI Miscellaneous Koans, Case 37 — Peach Blossoms

For thirty years I searched for a master swordsman.
How many times did the leaves fall, and the branches burst into bud?
But from the moment I saw the peach blossoms, I’ve had no doubts.

PZI Talk LIVE! Remembering & Forgetting with Gaffney & Hitchcock

April 20 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free – $10

Register here for PZI Talk LIVE!

Hello friends—

Join co-hosts Chris and Corey of PZI for a group conversation twice a month.

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’ll invite special guests, report on interspecies communication, encourage creative outbursts, and try to keep the wind in our collective sails.

This is 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. 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.

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