The One Heart Retreat, with Jon Joseph, Roshi

November 17-18
Heard Museum
Pheonix, AZ

With Jon Joseph, Roshi. Our world, our personal world, at times feels to be a bleak and broken landscape of loss. Yet from the first, we have intuitively known that our deepest heart, the heart of one who asks, is whole and complete. Our heart and all things are not separate.

The Big Reveal, with Jesse Cardin, Sensei

October 20, 2018
Grey Forest Community Center
Helotes, TX

In meditation, we can see things as they fall away. The mind is laid bare and with it, the world around us. As we look deeper, things only become simpler and the current beneath the universe presents itself through the bamboo leaves swaying in the wind, the rain pit-patting on the aluminum, and our own thoughts swirling together in dust devils of meaning.


The Painted Crane Flies; In The Darkness, Paths Appear

Open Mind with John Tarrant
November 29–December 2
Bolinas, CA

There is a story of a sage who drew a crane on a wall and it came to life. The old Zen path was built on stories and meditation. They lead us through confusion and they lead us through joy and give us a practice that sustains us all our lives.
