SUNDAY ZEN with Guest Host Tess Beasley: Whose Gift Is This Long, Beautiful Evening?

June 2 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free – $10


The moon shines on the river,
Wind stirs in the pines—
Whose gift is this long, beautiful evening?

–Yongjia Xuanjue

As the days grow long in the northern hemisphere, golden hour stretches its long fingers out each night and seems to brush with eternity. Birds call and frogs sing, and little by little I and everything disappear into twilight.

The world is always opening itself this way, offering its riches of being as part of our own, and yet the inevitable human thing is the nagging feeling something is wrong, something is missing, something has been lost. Great Huangbo said awakening is the silent bond through which all things are revealed as entirely oneself or one’s own family.

Join us Sunday for meditation, music, and companions of all kinds.

—Tess Beasley

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
