A Brief History of Tassajara

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.

Marvin Ross
As a volunteer, going back to the early 1970s, Marvin Ross recorded many of the thousands of teachings that Rinpoche gave during his seventeen years in North America. As a photographer, Marv has documented many important moments of sangha history. Of his photography, Marv writes: “My love of photography started over fifty-five years ago when my parents got me an Argus C3. I would shoot everything but always with mixed results. Then about twenty-five years ago I realized the need to take some photography classes. That made a huge difference in accelerating my understanding of the medium. This new understanding gave a lot more enjoyment in whatever I was shooting. Also in the past fifteen or so years I have been very fortunate to travel, for work and pleasure, to many distant places, always with the camera gear in tow. My love of the outdoors and the search for that perfect dusk or dawn light continues to excite me. Whatever I might be shooting, be it a wedding, race cars, portraiture, street photography, aerial photography or anything new, I regard these experiences as opportunities to further explore myself through photography." Marvin Ross currently lives in Boulder, CO where, among other activities, he works with the Rime Society and serves as a coordinator for Ocean online classes. The photo of Marv, riding what looks like a very small horse, was taken by Mark Wilding.
