ANNUAL DAYLONG: Buddha’s Life in Your Life Retreat with John Tarrant & Tess Beasley

December 11, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

$75 – $100


Daylong Retreat with John Tarrant & Tess Beasley
Sunday December 11, 2022
9:30 am – 4:00 pm Pacific Time

Long ago, in a kingdom far away, in a great forest, a man sat alone under a great, spreading, fig tree looking into the deepest matters. He had been a prince, but now, in desperation and hope, he meditated deep into the night. As dawn approached, his mind quieted, he looked up and saw the morning star and cried out,

Now I see that all beings have the nature of the one who comes thus:
Only their delusions and attachments keep them from realizing this.

Our retreat is on the anniversary of that event in early December as the old year winds down.

The Buddha’s discoveries take place in our own lives. The Buddha’s hardships and sorrow are definitely ours, and the Buddha’s awakening is waiting for us to know it personally. It’s easy to think of the Buddha’s journey as something far off. But the journey lives on and through us. Each year we follow the paths out of the palace and meet dragons and hermits and milkmaids and the morning star. We see them in the path of our own destiny and the shape of our own faces.

John Tarrant & Tess Beasley will be your guides, along with PZI teachers and special guests.

All are welcome.
