Nature of Zen at Tassajara
Many deep bows to all of you that showed up to walk the pathless path. This is my favorite time to be a Tassajara. We were blessed with so many gifts.
Here are a number of links that touch some part of our time together:

Many thanks to the students and staff at Tassajara, Tjarn, Myogen Steve Stücky, and the wilds of the Santa Lucia Mountains.
With a warm heart... two claps and one bow,

Exploring the wilds of the Big Sur
What a grand way to begin my workshop season. I was so touched our first evening to see so many returning friends, and then to feel the fullness with which everyone "jumped" in. I continue to appreciate the power of how community forms and supports our experience of the wilderness.
