Boundless Way Zen in Brooklyn


I’m so pleased to announce a new Boundless Way sitting group forming in Brooklyn.

It will be led by my senior student Desmond Gilna. Desmond has been a Zen practitioner for nearly thirty years, studying at several monastic centers in America & Japan prior to starting working with me and our other Boundless Way teachers. I find him a sharp mind and equally important a large heart. I’m particularly confident he will prove to be a competent and generous guide in koan introspection.

On the personal front he works as a therapist and is married to William O’Neil who grounds him in reality. Something all Zen teachers need, but too few get…

Bottom line:

If you live in the New York area and are looking for a sangha and a spiritual director, I think one of your best options is going to be Desmond & the Greenpoint Zen Sangha.
