"When the morning star appeared, I together with all beings attained enlightenment." Buddha




We warmly welcome you to Morning Star Zen Sangha, a Boundless Way Zen meditation practice group based in Newton and Waltham, MA. People of all experience levels and backgrounds are invited to join us. We meet Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9 PM at St. John's Episcopal Church, 297 Lowell Avenue, Newton, MA. Come on any Wednesday evening, as your schedule allows. If you are new to Morning Star Zen, please send an email to let us know you are coming and then arrive at 7:15 pm for a brief orientation. Morning Star Zen will also announce via our email list regular practice opportunities in East Waltham, very near Watertown and Belmont.




Our practice includes a brief chanting service (liturgy books provided), two 25 minute sitting periods, walking meditation, dharma talks and discussions, and personal meditation instruction in voluntary private meetings with a teacher. Talks and meetings will be offered on alternating weeks by Mike Fieleke, Sensei, and by other visiting Boundless Way Zen teachers.
