Coral Moon Zen, in the vicinity of Santa Barbara, CA, enjoys the guidance of artist and teacher Allison Atwill, Roshi.

AtwillThe ancient wisdom of Zen koans tells how to make room in your life for the unaccountable. You don’t have to worry your way through a predicament; it is more like when you hear music and your body just dances. Koans are a great treasure that anyone can bring to life. They can show you how to be at home in the universe, including your own life.

All are welcome here.

We meet on Thursdays 7-9pm. Four koan series – spring, summer, fall, winter – are offered  each year.

Where we meet: In a private home in Montecito, near Santa Barbara, CA.
