For many years PZI has been developing an intimate, conversational way of working with koans in groups, and holding wider conversations about Zen, creativity, and practice.
As part of this project, John Tarrant has developed “short courses” of six koans that can be taken up and worked with in small groups. He writes about these koans on his Zenosaurus blog. If you’d like to learn more about group practice, or see if there is a koan small group near you, click here. But you don’t need to be part of a group to work with these koans. You can browse and pick one to work with yourself, or let it pick you.
