2500 years ago the Buddha said craving and attachment is the cause of suffering. In the 1930’s Bill Wilson started the first Twelve Step program that worked with a deep form of craving and suffering: addictions. In these monthly meetings, we will explore the ways that Buddhism and the Steps support and complement each other and can deepen our spiritual lives. The meetings will include Buddhist meditation practices, interactive exercises, dharma talks and discussion. The evenings are open to all who are interested. You need not be in a Twelve Step program nor have a background in Buddhism. The fee is by donation.

"Step and speaker meeting" with an initial period of meditation

Address:

7 Arnold Park, Rochester, NY 14607 (map)

Other info:

The first 30 minutes we meditate in the zendo, then have an hour long 12 Step meeting in the library. The front door is usually locked, so please ring the bell. We don’t really have a name, but we are a step and speaker meeting open to all 12 Step members who are interested in how to work the steps as a Buddhist. Since we include all 12 steppers, and use Buddhist literature at times, we cannot be an official 12 step group. We have been meeting since around 2005. The majority of our members are Buddhist of some sort, but at least a third of the regulars are either Christian or uncommitted.
