Open Temple Reminder: Early Morning Meditation PLUS Saturday Intensive TOMORROW September 26, 2022
Hello fellow pilgrims.
The Temple will be open tomorrow for early morning meditation and also for our final Saturday Intensive.
Join us for any or all of these offerings!
A few members of a PZI meditation group will be hosting the Saturday Intensive on June 19th: Judith Swan and Chris Gaffney.
—Our group has found that the combination of two hours of koan meditation followed by one hour of conversation can have a potent effect—we’ve been gratefully surprised at what’s been offered us during these encounters. So we're offering this to you on Saturday. It is highly desirable that you commit, if possible, to the entire three-hour session. The stew needs to simmer, hope to see you in the pot.
The Saturday Intensive is made up of two 3-hour blocks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
Each block is made up of two hours of meditation, followed by an hour of conversation. You can choose a morning block or an afternoon block, or be there for both!
Western Temple: Alison McCabe will hold a cushion for you in the Western Temple from 6-7am PDT (or 9-10am EDT) with Case #83 from The Blue Cliff Record.

Yunmen, teaching the community, said, “The ancient buddhas and the pillar merge. What level of mental activity is this?”Yunmen then answered himself, “On South Mountain clouds gather, on North Mountain rain falls."
Judith Swan will welcome you in the afternoon temple. She will sit with Blue Cliff Record Case #74:
