TUESDAY ZEN: Welcoming the Ancestors – Evening Meditation & Poetry with Atwill, Beasley, Cardin, & Riddle

Free – $12


Evening Meditation & Poetry
in the PZI Online Temple
with any or all:
Allison Atwill, Tess Beasley, Jesse Cardin & Michelle Riddle

Here’s a foolish notion—
the spirit world is like
an autumn evening


Bursts of orange and deep purple, red and bright gold cover the hillside, announcing that autumn is once again washing over the world with its beauty and change. On quiet nights the sound of flapping wings breaks the silence, and geese call out in widening rows on their journey to warmer lands. For us, too, a movement begins: the great turning inward toward the dark and firelight. In this space the ancestors are known to gather, whispering the old stories and wisdom, and bringing dreams.

Meditation is a way of welcoming their presence as part of our own, and sinking into that timeless place together where the Dharma was born.

—Allison, Tess, Jesse, & Michelle
