Greater Boston Zen Center

The Greater Boston Zen Center, located at 552 Massachusetts Avenue, 2nd Floor, #208, Cambridge, Massachusetts, is a welcoming community of Dharma practitioners. Our lineage roots are in the Japanese Soto tradition through Jiyu Kennett Roshi and the Soto reform Harada-Yasutani koan curriculum through John Tarrant Roshi.

Our teachers offer guidance in all forms of Zen meditation including breath practices, koan introspection, and the subtle art of shikantaza or just sitting.

The Greater Boston Zen Center offers orientations, and a full schedule of sits, retreats, and other programming (see the Schedule tab above).

The Greater Boston Zen Center is under the spiritual direction of a committee of Zen teachers consisting of Sensei Steve Wallace, Rev. Laura Wallace and led by our Spiritual Director Roshi Josh Bartok.
