Saturday, 10 am - 3 pm in the Bakery
With Mick Sopko
This one-day workshop will put equal emphasis on theory and practice. Participants will help mix a batch of yeasted bread, shape the dough, and take home a freshly baked loaf. We'll study the fundamental principles of fermentation that will enable us to make sense of any bread recipe, including the ones we'd like to create ourselves.
Mick Sopko started practicing at Zen Center in 1977. He received lay dharma entrustment from Zoketsu Norman Fischer in 2005 and has held various positions at Green Gulch including head of the meditation hall, co-director, and, currently, bread baker.

When & Where
San Francisco Zen Center (SFZC)
Established in 1962 by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi and his American students, San Francisco Zen Center is a Soto Zen Buddhist community with three practice places in the SF Bay Area: City Center, an urban temple in the heart of San Francisco; Green Gulch Farm, in Marin County, where fertile fields meet the ocean; and Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, the first Zen training monastery in the West, in the Ventana Wilderness inland from Big Sur. At San Francisco Zen Center, zazen, study, and work practice are available to a diverse population of students, visitors, lay people, priests, and monks. All are welcome!
