Taking Part in the Gathering
Great Sesshin, Great Gathering, Summer Moon

You can join us at:

Santa Sabina Retreat Center in Northern California
Monday June 13 – Sunday June 19, 2022

The great, round summer sesshin 

Touching the heart touching the mind,
round as the sun, round as the moon,
round as a bicycle wheel,
roses and ravens and roads through the woods, inexplicably round,
the silence of meditation comes up around us,
and there we feel free,
round as a well full of starlight in the woods—
taking part in the summer gathering,
the round smile of summer

There will be personal interviews and deep meditation, teaching talks and some conversations, old friends and new, a refuge ceremony, brilliant teachers, music, great enlightenment, mistakes, and delight. 

This is the first in-person sesshin we’ve held in two and half years. This will be our only in-person sesshin this year.  

So you might want to sign up soon

Dear PZI Friends,

In sesshin we come together with PZI members, teachers, musicians, and those new to PZI. We can discover things which we could not discover alone. It’s nice to have each other as we find our way. Thank you for all you offer to PZI.

—PZI Board President Tess Beasley Sensei & Director John Tarrant Roshi, & All of us at PZI
