SUNDAY ZEN: Beauty and the Beast – with John Tarrant & Friends

September 17 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free – $10


There are many gates of entry in this fairy tale. We’ve been using the Italian version—Belinda and the Monster.

The monster gets a mysterious power from his rose bush. Belinda falls in love with him in spite of his ugliness. Her love breaks the spell that has been cast on him and he turns into a beautiful prince. Belinda says, ”But I want the monster.”

Slowly, through practice she makes her way into her true path, discovering what she most wants and who she really is. 

Sounds like what we are up to.

—John Tarrant

Meditation is not a task with a known goal. It’s something you can’t do wrong, a chance for the things of this world to come towards you and to meet you, for doors to open by themselves, and for us to see where the ancient paths lead.

Waking up is something we do together, in the online temple on Sunday. We love it when you join us. 

—John Tarrant Roshi and all of us at PZI
