An old question: What is your face before your parents were born? 

Interested in finding out? Please come join us for a day of creative expression and meditation, exploring this question. Corey Hitchcock, interdisciplinary artist and Zen practitioner, will be visiting from her Sangha in Grass Valley. She will be joined by Chris Gaffney, a member of the leadership in the Dharma Buffet group at the Sky Creek Dharma Center. 

We are both members of the Pacific Zen Institute, where koan inquiry is central to getting to the heart of the matter. Creative expression can also bring us into the field of mystery from which the koans spring. Together, they provide a potent brew, nourishing in troubled times. No experience necessary.


We are limiting this gathering to fifteen participants. Register Now


For questions, contact Chris Gaffney cgaffney@csuchico.edu

We will provide all art materials necessary. Please plan to bring a lunch.
