Registration is required. Please email Teresa Bouza ( [masked] ) if you would like to attend the event.

Marcia Lieberman has been affiliated with San Francisco Zen Center since 1989. She taught in the photography departments at UC Berkeley and California College of the Arts. In 2016 she completed graduate studies in Buddhist scholarship at the Institute for Buddhist Studies, UCB Graduate Theological Seminary.

This is the first of a series of three workshops Marcia will be leading in partnership with Kannon Do. Come to one or as many as you are able. There is a suggested donation of $20. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Suggested readings before the workshops:

"Inside the Grass Hut: Living Shitou’s Classic Zen Poem" by Ben Connelly

"Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind" Mind Weeds: Pgs. 36-37 by Shunryu Suzuki

“I’ve built a grass hut where there’s nothing of value.

After eating, I relax and enjoy a nap.

When it was completed, fresh weeds appeared.

Now it’s been lived in—covered by weeds.”

-- Shitou
