Cascadian Zen: Bioregional Writings on Cascadia Here and Now

Screenshot 2024-03-25 at 12.49.47.png
What is the nature of the bioregion known as Cascadia? How is this insight expressed by the people who live, work, practice, and play here? Is there a connection between Zen practice, broadly construed, and the Cascadia bioregion? If so, what is it? Who have been the teachers in the relatively short time that Zen has been known in this bioregion? What role does water play here, more so than in other bioregions and what implications does that have for the people who live here, for their practice?

It is these questions, and other questions brought on by these, that are explored in the new title Cascadian Zen: Bioregional Writings on Cascadia Here and Now. Join all three editors of this gorgeous anthology that brings together nonfiction, poetry, interviews, translations, and artwork in the Village Books Readings Gallery in Fairhaven to explore Zen practice in the Cascadia bioregion.

Registration is requested but tickets available at the door >>
