The Sound of the Distant Temple Bell – PZI Miscellaneous koans
An extended online retreat in the PZI Digital Temple
with John Tarrant & Friends
October 19 – 24, 2021 Register
To win your way through, to meet awakening, to pass through the barrier of life and death; in this life you will become a fox, a star, the Loch Ness Monster, a mountain dancing, a tree in a high wind, a fire, a river, a flying bird, a woman running an inn long ago, a temple bell.
In autumn we are captured; red grapes fall off the backs of trucks, fires burn the vineyards and the new house where we took shelter, Persephone goes down into the underworld to see her difficult husband.
We witness the changes, Metamorphosis is underway.
So this will be a rousing sesshin devoted to the Miscellaneous Koans—the collection that opens the marvelous nature of the world and awakening.
Enter here. Online. Your room will be a part of the temple.

Dear PZI Friends —
We come together across oceans and continents with PZI members, teachers, musicians, and those new to PZI. We can discover things together which we could not discover alone. There’s a scholarship fund for PZI members who want to attend and need financial assistance. If you’re not a member, we invite you to join us today! You can read more about this below, and then get in touch with our registrar.
Thank you for all you have offered to PZI during these last many months, and these last many decades. It’s nice to have each other as we find our way.
—Board President Tess Beasley Sensei & Director John Tarrant Roshi, & All of us at PZI
