Winter & Silver,
Moonlight & Snow

February 1st – 6th, 2022


An extended online retreat in the PZI Digital Temple
with John Tarrant & Friends

Winter & silver, moonlight & snow, the silence at the beginning of the world.

It speaks in silence;
in speech you hear its silence.
The great way opens and there are no obstacles. 

—Yongjia Song of Enlightenment

In silence, there we feel free. In silence, the person who is angry forgets to be angry, the busy person laughs, the sad person walks toward spring. The still invisible, true life is stirring underground. Our silence aids the things to come. Already we feel them.

We make a temple that has altars all over the world. No one is correct or excluded. The fox crosses the garden, the owl announces silence, silence. The rain comes & the winter light. We sit quietly together, the temple bells are inside and outside, and already we are in the new life.

—John Tarrant

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 offer to PZI. 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
