The Field of Unknowing: Source of the Creative – Meditation & Conversation with Allison Atwill

Sunday, June 2nd, 2019
Coral Moon Zen
Santa Barbara

The creative moment appears inside uncertainty, it is an eternal moment, a beautiful moment with no past or future, no success or failure. In this retreat we’ll look at stories, koans and poems about the uncertain moments of life; how our failures and endings, are portals to not-knowing, the source of a fathomless creativity.

Blossoms, Leaves, Intimate Talks and Moonlit Walks – An Open Mind Retreat with John Tarrant

August 15-18, 2019
Commonweal Center
Bolinas, CA

Each piece of life is a mirror; when we look into it, we see our own face and we see that the galaxies and the field mice are equal. In this retreat we’ll look at stories, koans and poems about the intimate moments of life, about how the small, true things give us a joy that is hard to describe or even contain.
