Josh Bartok

                Another Boundless Way teacher, Josh Bartok, told me that he was responsible for the name of the order: “It sprung from something that James Ford said to me. I was stressing about something about myself or my practice or something, and James looked at me, and he said, ‘Josh, the Way is wide and forgiving.’ And that kind of became the seed for something. ‘Wide Way’ didn’t sound right, more like a plus-size men’s store. But the Zen way is actually beyond wide. It’s boundless. So that’s how we got there.”
