Biography

Susan Moon is a writer, editor, and lay teacher in the Soto Zen tradition. She is the author of a number of books about Buddhism, including the humor book The Life and Letters of Tofu Roshi and This Is Getting Old: Zen Thoughts on Aging with Humor and Dignity. For many years she was the editor of Turning Wheel, the journal of socially engaged Buddhism. Her short stories and essays have been published widely.

Sue has been a Zen student since 1976, practicing in the lineage of Suzuki Roshi at Berkeley Zen Center, Tassajara Zen Mountain Monastery, Green Gulch Farm, and now with Zoketsu Norman Fischer’s Everyday Zen sangha. She received “entrustment” as a lay teacher in 2005.

Dana

"Dana" is the Pali word for generosity and is the first paramita in Buddhism. You will be invited to give an additional teacher donation on the day of the retreat to thank and honor the teacher yourself as these teachings are priceless and freely given by the teacher (meaning they don't charge a specific fee).

The registration fee contributes to the rent, administrative costs, teacher travel, and material expenses for both this retreat as well as SBMG's ongoing Sunday Night programs.
