The Canadian launch of Cascadian Zen: Bioregional writings on Cascadia here and now (Watershed Press $30.00) at People’s Co-op Bookstore on Saturday, April 20, 2024, from 7:00 pm onwards. The evening features presentations by the anthology’s co-editor based in BC, Adelia MacWilliam, alongside other contributors from Seattle and special guests, Daphne Marlatt (at right), Jami Macarty, and Kate Braid.

Cascadian Zen presents an exploration into the essence of the Cascadia bioregion and its interconnectedness with Zen practice. Through a blend of poetry, essays, artwork and interviews, the volume delves into how inhabitants of Cascadia express their profound relationship with the land and water, pondering the potential convergence of Zen philosophy with the region’s unique environmental ethos. The book investigates the significance of water in the region, reflecting on its heightened importance compared to other bioregions and the resulting implications for residents and their spiritual endeavors. Published in October 2023, the book made its debut at the Cascadia Poetry Festival in Seattle, offering an enriching tapestry of insights into the symbiotic relationship between Zen spirituality and the natural landscape of Cascadia.
