The PZI Dragon of Requirement Newsletter Archive

A Note from John Tarrant

Hi friends,

Our monthly newsletter is another way to stay connected with our far-flung sangha, as we transition to an online universe during the continuing coronavirus pandemic. Each issue has material about what’s up on zoom, bits of dharma, something by me, and pieces by other teachers and students. Usually we include excerpts and full recordings of recent dharma talks.

We want the newsletter to be a welcoming place, somewhere you go to find the spirit of surprise and companionship in our interesting times.

We’d like to hear from you too. Conversation has always been in our mission statement, and that’s because all beings have Buddha nature—we walk together and open the way for each other and learn from each other.

—John Tarrant Roshi
