Blue Heron Zen Show is Archived

Early in the new year at a Sunday practice, Zen Master Jeong Ji had an idea — for our sangha to create a space to bring people together and share creative work. Very soon after the inaugural Blue Heron Zen Show was born. On March 27, sixteen artists shared their art, writing, making, and music with the community. A heartfelt thanks to all participants! For those of you who missed the show—you are welcome to enjoy the work by way of this archive.
