The Gateway Into the Dream
with John Tarrant & Friends

October 3rd
10am-4pm PDT
in the PZI Digital Temple

In a well that was not dug
water ripples from a spring that doesn’t flow.
Someone with no shadow or form
is drawing the water.

If we do one period of meditation, life becomes more transparent and less tangled. When we turn toward the way, it becomes a practice. Then it stains us all the way through; fear falls away, the images and koans of the old teachers carry us, our minds roam free. It changes your life.

The stories and images of the koans come to us and inhabit us, and we walk inside them as if they were cathedrals carrying the wonder of the old masters. Which they are.

We welcome both new and experienced practitioners to the koan tradition and our PZI Way. Join us, it’s time.

—John Tarrant Roshi
