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.
