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.

Hildy Maze is long-time student of the Vidyadhara. She is also a dedicated and prolific artist. About her work: “Maze explores abstract/figurative painting, drawing and sculpture like an archaeologist, presenting ephemeral marks and shapes that speak to the discourse of impermanence, continuing change and the nature of mind. As objects that also symbolize the process of mind, the artist’s rustic representations feature textures and tones that suggest both archaeology and landscape.” - Jill O’Connor - curator, editor and founder of AS/Studios New York,2016
