The Journey To Awakening: Meditating with Zen Stories and Myths, with John Tarrant

May 8-10, 2020
Garrison Institute
Garrison, NY

The old Zen teachers thought awakening is the moment that changes everything—The Buddha looked up and saw the morning star and a gate opened in his heart. The spiritual path is full of stories of the journey to awakening, of dark nights and great discoveries. The Zen idea was that even hearing such stories makes gates open for you. The stories are called koans.
