PZI Zen Online- Jesse talks about the creative practice of finding (writing) a song and koan practice, following the breadcrumbs of insight, allowing the uncertainty. Everything moves toward ‘birth’ with the ‘Stone Woman’. He tells the Maralung koan about a song man who finds and finally remembers his song. Includes snippets of the song Jesse is writing. As recorded May 27, 2020.
John Tarrant, Roshi, Director of PZI and author, talks about the mystery of meditation as he first experienced it in the ancient forests of Queensland; about transformation on the ancient koan path we follow, and the evolution of Pacific Zen Institute as a community, and koan school with a new online resource center, the KALPA (Koans and Liberation Project Archive) Library.
