Welcome Home (working copy)

We warmly welcome you to Boundless Way Temple of Worcester MA, a place of Zen Buddhist training and practice. We invite you to join us as we come together in stillness and silence to awaken to the possibility of being fully human. Located on Pleasant St. near Tatnuck Square with easy parking, our building accessible to all. The Temple offers daily meditation practice, dharma talks, retreats, classes, workshops, and opportunities to study with Zen teachers. Visitors, whether new to meditation or experienced, are always welcome to join in Morning or Evening Practice, which happen eight times a week. Our lovingly-tended meditation garden is open during daylight hours for quiet enjoyment and contemplation.

The Temple teachers offer guidance in traditional Zen practices such as breath awareness, mindfulness practices, inquiry into the moment, shikantaza (just sitting), and koan practice. We are dedicated to helping every student find a meditation practice that fits their unique personality and deepest intention for awakening. We are committed to the continuing work of integrating our practice into daily life.

Our regular practice schedule is as follows:

  • Morning Practice is held Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 8 AM
  • Evening Practice is held Tuesdays & Thursdays from 7 PM to 8 PM and Sundays from 7 PM to 8:30 PM.

If you are new to our practice we recommend you visit our page about visiting for the first time.

Be sure to check out our calendar for our talks & dokusan schedule, and for more information on daily meditation practice, talks, retreats, and workshops.
