THE ELEGANT PATH OF THE BOOK OF SERENITY ~ A Fall Retreat with JOHN TARRANT and Friends

October 13~20, 2019
Land of Medicine Buddha
Santa Cruz, CA

The Book of Serenity is collection of 100 koans and poems, which was assembled for Yelu Chucai, a minister of Ghenghis Khan. The book was lost in the wars and rewritten and when it finally arrived out on the steppes, the ministers sat up all night in a yurt reading and discussing it.

BODHIDHARMA'S JOURNEY, OUR PATH ~ A Two-day Retreat with JON JOSEPH

November 16~17, 2019
Franciscan Renewal Center
Scottsdale, AZ

Centuries ago, Bodhidharma, the founder of Zen in China, traveled the mysterious journey from India.  Students for years would pose the classical question: Why did he come from the West?

That question fundamentally is our question: Why are we here? Come help us investigate that question, with meditation, conversation and one-on-ones, for two days in November.

SAN MATEO ZEN and PACIFIC ZEN INSTITUTE have ongoing programs in San Mateo, Oakland, Santa Rosa, as well as at affiliates in San Antonio and Waco, Ky. Please look to each group's respective websites for specifics.
