Rochester


Step and speaker meeting - with an initial period of meditation


Day/time: Wednesdays  —  5:00pm - 6:30pm


Rochester Zen Center

7 Arnold Park, Rochester, NY 14607-2082   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.
