We warmly welcome you to Boundless Way Temple/Worcester Zen Center. The Temple offers daily meditation practice, retreats, workshops and opportunities to study with Zen teachers. We are an affiliate of Boundless Way Zen, a school which combines Japanese Soto and Korean Rinzai traditions in innovative ways that include basic Zen practices such as breath awareness, mindfulness practices, inquiry into the moment, shikantaza (just sitting) and koan practice in the Sanbo Kyodan tradition.
We are dedicated to helping every student find a meditation practice that fits his or her unique personality and deepest intention for awakening. And we are committed to the integration of practice into daily life.Read the full story »

Four Wednesdays from January 8 — January 29, 2014. In this class we will learn or rediscover basic Zen meditation practices, engage with each other in structured dialogue and group discussions based on Genjokoan, and use Dogen’s teaching as a basis for weekly assignments encouraging us to live with more awareness.
Sesshin is an intensive Zen meditation retreat that includes nine hours of meditation a day, liturgy, oryoki (meditative dining) and dokusan (private interviews with the teachers).
