SUNDAY ZEN: New Directions at Year’s End: The Quest for the Grail with John Tarrant & Friends

December 17, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free – $10


The Grail Quest is deeper than most stories; it was told at a time of great change in Western culture and might help us now. We meet the wounded Fisher King and go to his mysterious palace in a wasteland, we see marvels but the palace disappears when we leave. We are instructed and excoriated by a sorceress who is a monster with tusks but also learned, wears a cape with turtle dove designs, and helps us resolve our quest. Love is an important part of the mystery.

People go to abandoned places to search for their true nature.
At such a moment, honored one, where is your true nature?

—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
