Rev. Diane Shoshin Fitzgerald receives Denbo Transmission


It is with great pleasure that I announce that, late in the night of March 17, 2017,  I gave Dharma Transmission to Rev. Diane Shoshin Fitzgerald, at a secret ceremony at Boundless Way Temple, witnessed by other transmitted teachers of Boundless Way Zen.  Diane Sensei was voted in by the Boundless Way Zen Leadership Council as a Guiding Teacher of  Boundless Way Zen.  Also an ordained Soto Zen priest, Diane is resident teacher at Boundless Way Temple, and at Boundless Way Zen DownEast in Pembroke, Maine.  She is one of the leaders of the Boundless Way Zen and Boundless Way Zen DownEast EcoSattva action groups and is a volunteer with DownEast Maine Hospice Services.
