The Rochester Zen Center Sangha Engagement Committee

Ways to Engage (off the cushion) at RZC

On-going activities:

  • The Zen of Living and Dying – an open and ongoing group meeting for support and discussion. This group gathers to provide support and discuss these issues from a Buddhist perspective. We meet regularly every 2-3 weeks, typically following Sunday zazen and brunch. All are welcomed and encouraged to join. Contact Wayman Kubicka (lou.kubicka@gmail.com) for information about the next meeting.
  • “Seeing Through Racism” group – This group meets with the intention of removing our separation from others. With racism being one of the most insidious sources of dukkha in our culture, we strive to gain personal insight into it. We seek to abandon it on an individual level, to dismantle it on an institutional level, and to uproot it in our sangha. Discussions, chanting, videos and other activities. Contact Gerry Dartt, 585-406-4531 or Jim Thompson, 585-703-7739.
  • Finding Your Seat –  A program to support beginners and others looking to establish a regular meditation practice.  The current session meets each Saturday from 11:00 to noon, beginning March 17 and ending April 21.  To find out more, call the Center, 585-473-9180.
