The Springwater Center is a place to stay for the purpose of meditation. The center is located about 45 minutes south of Rochester, on 200 acres of rural land.

Finding a succinct description for the Springwater Center is difficult, as it is most often defined by what it is not. Springwater is run by Toni Packer, a former teacher at the Rochester Zen Center who was led to question her affiliation with formal Bhuddist Zen. The center's focus is 'sorting through the raw material of our everyday lives.'

All meals are vegetarian. At times it is possible to work in exchange for room and board.
