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.

Going or returning, we are in the right place.

With what you gain from just one sitting, all your crimes are wiped away. 

—Verses from Hakuin’s Praise Song for Meditation

With the turning of the year comes the age-old desire for renewal—the longing for a clean slate and opportunity to start anew, with a life free from hindrances and full of the things we long for.

Trouble is, this can become an endless self-improvement project where we try to substitute one self with another, better one, still holding tight to beliefs about ourselves and the world.

Zen invites us to set aside ideas of good-and-bad and bathe in the original silence that has held each part of the universe from the very beginning. It is renewal born of resting into our inexhaustible true nature and of glimpsing vast forces always revealing our path home.

—Allison, Tess, Jesse, & Michelle

We remain in a PZI Zen Online format for these weekly gatherings, in this time of transition and gradual reopening. Join us in the PZI Digital Temple on Sunday.
