PZI This Year & Next - Feeding Our PZI Dragon for the Year of the Tiger 2022

There is a solitary brightness without fixed shape or form.
It knows how to listen to the teachings, it knows how to understand the teachings, it knows how to teach.
That solitary brightness is you.

Register here for Winter Sesshin*

Winter & silver, moonlight & snow, the silence at the beginning of the world.

It speaks in silence;
in speech you hear its silence.
The great way opens and there are no obstacles.

 —Yongjia Song of Enlightenment

In silence, there we feel free. In silence, the person who is angry forgets to be angry, the busy person laughs, the sad person walks toward spring. The still invisible, true life is stirring underground. Our silence aids the things to come. Already we feel them.

We make a temple that has altars all over the world. No one is correct or excluded. The fox crosses the garden, the owl announces silence, silence. The rain comes & the winter light. We sit quietly together, the temple bells are inside and outside, and already we are in the new life.

—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 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!

Thank you for all you offer to PZI. It’s nice to have each other as we find our way.
