Open Door Group


Open Door encourages spiritual transformation through inquiry, ritual, meditation, education, koan study and prayer.

As the spiritual formation program of First Congregational UCC of Santa Rosa, Open Door is founded on the principle that spiritual formation is without boundary, the birthright of all. Open Door offers an interfaith approach to spiritual growth.

For more information, please visit our Open Door website.


Open Door Meditation

Meditation Group meets every Wednesday in the sanctuary of First Congregational UCC from 6:30 to 8 pm. We sit with a koan for about a half an hour followed by tea and meditation. This is an inclusive and Interfaith group.


Open Door Tuesday Night Poetry

Every other Tuesday evening we will gather to share and contemplate poems brought by you. Email with poems and for information on meeting times!
