San Francisco Zen Center is pleased to present a panel discussion featuring contributing writers from The Hidden Lamp: Stories from Twenty-Five Centuries of Awakened Women. The Hidden Lamp is a collection of one hundred koans and stories of Buddhist women from the time of the Buddha to the present day. Short, lively and personal, many of the commentaries presented in the book are written by women teachers in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. The editors of this anthology will be present to introduce the book and our panel speakers.

Fees: $5-15 suggested donation (sliding-scale). No one turned away for lack of funds.

The Zen Center bookstore will be open during this event. Zen Center members receive a 10% discount on The Hidden Lamp and other purchases.
