Welcome Home!

We warmly welcome you to Boundless Way Temple of Worcester MA, a place of Zen Buddhist training and practice. 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.

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

People of all experience levels and walks of life are welcome to come to the Temple for any of our practice periods. You do not have to be a member to participate in our programs. If you are new to Zen, we recommend you arrive 15 minutes prior to your first practice so that one of our resident teachers or practice leaders can explain basic forms before we go into silence, and answer any questions you may have.
