The Greater Boston Zen Center, a Boundless Way Zen affiliate located at 288 Norfolk Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, Massachusetts, is a welcoming community of Dharma practitioners. Our lineage roots are in the Japanese Soto tradition through Jiyu Kennett Roshi, the Soto reform Harada-Yasutani koan curriculum through John Tarrant Roshi, and the Korean Linji tradition.
The Greater Boston Zen Center offers introductory orientation classes by appointment, a weekly zazen (Zen meditation) schedule of morning and evening sits, as well as a Precepts study group, a Dogen study group, and opportunities for Dharma dialogue discussion groups.
We offer all-day sits (zazenkai) approximately once a month, and a "commuter meditation retreat" consisting of two all-day sits in a row once a year. We all offer a full schedule of weekly programs, including Zen meditation, Zen liturgy, and meditation instruction.
The Greater Boston Zen Center is under the spiritual directorship of Sensei Josh Bartok.
