At New York Zendo and Dai Bosatsu Zendo, we respect and cherish our fundamental oneness while celebrating our differences. We strive to create accessible and equitable spaces, free from prejudice based on race, ethnicity, age, sex, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, economic status, religion, nationality, and citizenship status, among others.
We unequivocally acknowledge the discrimination, prejudice, and privilege that exist in society at large; we commit to the work of building a culture of accountability and healing. We encourage you to speak with one of our ordained residents if you have questions, comments, or concerns regarding our practices, rituals, and traditions. If you experience any discriminatory or harmful speech or action here, please contact Rev. Jikyo Bonnie Shoultz or Michael Fayne at Ethics@zenstudies.org and we will respond promptly. We welcome and value all who come here, with a heartfelt spirit of inclusion.
