Henry David Thoreau Zen Sangha

The Henry David Thoreau Zen Sangha is named for the great Unitarian Transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, who in many ways anticipated Zen practice and thought.

This Sangha seeks to honor both the eastern traditions of Zen practice and the western traditions of social concern and engagement. Often simply called “Hank,” it is a Zen meditation group in the combined Harada/Yasutani and Soto Zen lineages.

The group was founded by James I. Ford, a Unitarian Minister and his wife Jan Seymour-Ford. James is the first Unitarian Universalist to be named a Zen master. Hank is a member group of the Boundless Way Zen network, which has a number of sitting groups and four Guiding Teachers.

Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.

~ H.D. Thoreau
