About the Boundless Way Temple

About the Boundless Way Temple

Our mission is to support the purposes and practices of Boundless Way Zen through sustaining a dedicated site for:

  • Residential Zen retreats
  • Training and special events
  • Daily practice

The Temple is guided by our resident transmitted teachers: Melissa Myozen Blacker, Roshi and Abbot David Dae An Rynick, Roshi. We are a non-profit religious organization governed by an elected Leadership Council.

Our Vision

We have created the Boundless Way Temple organization in order to move toward our vision to:

  • Purchase the property at 1030 Pleasant Street so it remains a place of Zen practice in perpetuity
  • Make appropriate upgrades to the building to better serve sesshin and training needs of BoWZ
  • Support the presence and teaching of our resident teachers

The daily operations and projects of the Temple are made possible through financial donations from members, friends and visitors. Your pledge and contributions pay for our ongoing expenses such as occupancy, utilities, supplies, and our contribution in support of our parent organization, Boundless Way Zen.
