Meditation and Teaching

This event will be LiveStreamed for those who can’t come in person. Follow this link to view.

The Way of the Bodhisattva means doing the work of the world because it is your own true work.

There seems to be good evidence that the world is going to hell in a handbasket, apocalyptic mistakes are being made everywhere you look. But there are also discoveries about what we do with the impossible problems, that help us learn to participate in this alarmingly beautiful world in all its complexity and calamity.

Depending on not knowing and on uncertainty

Turning towards what is happening, turning the light backwards

Hearing the sounds of the world

Intimacy, empathy, keeping company with each other in all conditions

Following the images, reaching in the dark to participate

Zen, it turns out, fortunately, is a path, not a destination.

John Tarrant has been teaching Zen and koans for a long long time, he also has had a life as an activist, and did dreamwork for many years, and writes poetry. He’s director of Pacific Zen and author of Bring Me the Rhinoceros, as well as The Light Inside the Dark.

Location: Santa Rosa Creek Zendo and online

John Tarrant is an author, poet and teacher of Zen koans, founder and director of Pacific Zen Institute. His premise that anyone can wake up anytime is central to the koan path. Come join us for meditation teaching and conversation, open to all.
Practitioners who cultivate the personal realization of buddha knowledge dwell in the bliss of whatever is present and do not abandon their practice.
