Public Sitting Hours

Our regular mid-week meditation sitting is on Wednesday night 7-7:30pm. Sitting is followed by a tea break, then book study and discussion (schedule permitting).

Our regular Sunday morning meditation practice is 9:30 -11 am, with sitting and walking meditation. We begin with morning chants at 9:30. Chants are always optional; chant books are provided for those who wish to join or read along. If you do not wish to chant, you are welcome to join sitting anytime after 9:45. Sitting is followed by a tea break, then book study and discussion (schedule permitting).

No prior meditation experience is required to attend Wednesday or Sunday sittings. Free meditation instruction is available.

Ongoing Study Group:The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma

This study group meets every other Monday evening at our Mid-Town Delek. A potluck supper and social time starts at 6:30pm with the book study from 7:00pm – 8:30pm.  Please contact Chris at 602-696-9694 or Muffie at 602-885-1811 for address/directions.

We completed the first two volumes of the Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, which elucidate the hinayana and mahayana paths. As of January 2018 we are reading the third volume, the Tantric Path of Indestructible Wakefulness. If you would like to join the book group it would be helpful to have some background in the hinayana and mahayana paths. But this is not necessary. All are welcome to participate. Once we finish the third volume (estimated two years) we will likely restart with book one The Path of Individual Liberation.

It is not necessary to buy the books. We have a copy to share as we take turns reading each evening.  If you wish to purchase your own copy, they are available at www.shambhala.com/the-profound-treasury-of-the-ocean-of-dharma.html or at other online retailers.  Please feel free to call us with questions.
