I began my formal Zen training in 1981 and was officially recognized as a Zen Master in the Korean Rinzai tradition in 2011 by my teacher Zen Master George Bomun Bowman. In 2012 I was ordained as a Soto Zen Priest by James Ishmael Ford, Roshi. I have been a member of the American Zen Teachers Association since 2009.
I am one of the founders and guiding teachers of Boundless Way Zen, (www.boundlesswayzen.org) a community of Zen practitioners and meditation groups in New England.
I currently live at the Boundless Way Zen Temple in Worcester, MA where I am Abbot and one of the Resident Teachers along with my wife, Melissa Myozen Blacker, Roshi. Melissa is a priest, Zen Mster and koan teacher in two Soto lineage traditions.
Meditation Retreats and Trainings
Melissa and I lead daily meditation opportunities and residential retreats at Boundless Way Temple. We also lead meditation retreats throughout New England and in Europe.
