This is your chance to study the teachings of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi by hearing them in his own voice.

In recent years, San Francisco Zen Center has been working to preserve its extensive archive of recorded talks. As a part of this work, recordings of SFZC's founder Shunryu Suzuki Roshi have come to light which were thought to be lost or had simply disappeared from the records.

We will be listening to talks from the early years when Suzuki Roshi was establishing his style of teaching for the "beginners" in the Bay Area. These talks formed the basis of his much-loved book Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind.

There will be chances to discuss our understanding and to hear from Abbot Ed Sattizahn on his personal experiences with Suzuki Roshi.
