Visiting teacher, Marcia Lieberman, leads us in this month-long practice period.  Marcia is a long-term Buddhist practitioner who has been at San Francisco Zen Center since 1989. She has been a resident at all three SFZC practice centers. During this time she received training in the temple arts regarding service and practice. She is a devoted student of way of tea.  Also an artist, her affinity for the beauty and form of Zen ceremony has been a guiding part of her practice. In recent years she has increased her focus and study of the basic Zen temple arts and their place in every day zen practice.

She has taught the Bozeman Zen Group for 14 years and practiced at the Berkeley Zen Center and San Francisco Zen Center beginning in 1986.
