Invitation to Membership in Boundless Way Temple
We would like to invite you to support Boundless Way Temple through becoming a member.
Our purpose is to further the mission of Boundless Way Zen (BoWZ) through:
- Hosting sesshin and other intensive training and study opportunities
- Offering regular meditation periods
- Being a location for jukai and other Boundless Way functions
The Temple organization has been created as a financially independent affiliate of the larger BoWZ organization in order to:
- Purchase the property at 1030 Pleasant Street so it remains a place of Zen practice in perpetuity
- Make appropriate upgrades of the property to better serve sesshin and other residential training needs of BoWZ
- Support the presence and teaching of resident transmitted teachers
Joining the Temple in no way negates your membership in BoWZ writ large. If you’re not already a member of BoWZ, this is one way to become one. If you already are, this allows you to also provide direct support of this exciting growth in our larger sangha.
The daily operations of the Temple are made possible and sustained by financial donations. These contributions pay for ongoing expenses such as occupancy, utilities, supplies and our monthly contribution to our parent organization, Boundless Way Zen.
We invite you to deepen your personal engagement with the activities of Boundless Way Temple, and provide ongoing support of our mission, by becoming a member.
