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 »
We will discuss traditional home-leaving and contemporary adaptations of actualizing the fundamental point (genjokoan) through the three aspects (food, clothing, shelter in accord with dharma) and the three essential activities (zazen, study, work) of home-leaving practice.
Check out this newspaper story on Buddhas Over Worcester and please visit the sculpture exhibit at the Boundless Way Zen Temple between now and July 5th!
Our door opens 15 minutes before each practice period, for welcome and orientation.
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).
