ZEN LUMINARIES Series: Conversations with Jon Joseph Roshi

Jon Joseph Roshi of San Mateo Zen and PZI created this series to support the hardworking innovators and shining voices of modern Zen: scholars, writers, poets, translators, activists, artists, teachers, and more.

All proceeds for each event, including teacher dana, go directly to the guest speaker. Event attendees are encouraged to give as generously as you are able, so we can offer deep thanks to our guests for their dedication to the Dharma.

Consider checking out as a “Patron” to help this series continue.
