From Native American Sweat Lodges to Pioneering Zen Monastery
with a Foreword by David Chadwick
from Cuke Press, a project of Cuke Archives
This book is based on a scrapbook that sat for years in the office of Tassajara Springs, Zen Mountain Center, deep in the mountains of Monterey County, California. It was put together by Marilyn McDonald who was a frequent guest at Tassajara from the mid-seventies to mid-eighties. From the day she arrived she was fascinated with the history of the place, did extensive research and many interviews. Marilyn passed away January, 2017, and a combination of her friends, family, and a few of us Zennies put a lot of effort into polishing it up and making it widely available.

David Wilde met Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in Delhi in late 1968 or early 1969. During that time David received Sadhana of Mahamudra Abhisheka from Rinpoche, an abhisheka that he performed only a very few times during his life. He returned to North America in 1970, became an early student at Tail of the Tiger, and has been a dedicated member of the community for over forty years. He currently lives near Karme Chöling.
