Reb Anderson moved to San Francisco from Minnesota, in 1967, to study Zen Buddhism with Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, who ordained him as a priest in 1970. Since then, Reb has continued to study at San Francisco Zen Center, which includes Beginner's Mind Temple at The City Center (San Francisco), Green Dragon Temple at Green Gulch Farm (near Muir Beach, California), and Zen Mind Temple (Carmel Valley, California). Reb served as abbot from 1986 to 1995 and is now a senior dharma teacher.
He lives with his family and friends at Green Gulch Farm, where he teaches, lectures, and leads practice periods.`Review:

"A gathering of wonderful stories of lineage teachers and their students, intermingled with stories from Reb's life and practice, that enliven and extend our understanding of Zen practice." -- Shambhala Sun, November 1999
"Originally published in 1995 by the San Francisco Zen Center, this beautifully designed new edition organizes the material more logically and contains an additional lecture: a basic encouragement to new students on zen practice. Susan Moon's foreword takes us into the zendo where Reb Anderson delivered the talks from which the book is drawn. Although focused primarily on meditation practice, these talks also address living in the suffering world." -- Turning Wheel: Journal of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, Winter 2000
"These collected dharma talks . . . carry the scent of incense and the spaciousness of a zendo. The dignity and incisiveness of Suzuki Roshi echo in the voice of his student." -- Yoga Journal, June 1999
