Ongoing Offerings

Our center offers a rich array of weekly ongoing offerings free to the public. No prior meditation experience required to attend. Most programs offer meditation instruction upon request. All are welcome.

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).  On Wednesdays we are reading from “The Shambhala Principle” by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Copies are available for purchase at the Center.

Our regular Sunday morning meditation sitting has two sessions: Morning Chants and Meditation at 9:30-10 am, and Sitting and Walking meditation at 10 – 11 am. You are welcome to attend either or both sessions as you prefer. Sitting is followed by a tea break and snacks, then book study and discussion (schedule permitting). During Sundays we are reading “The Path of Individual Liberation” by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, or “The Shambhala Principle” by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

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

A study group is forming to take a close look at the edited compilation of the Ven. Chogyam Trungpa’s thirteen Vajradhatu Seminary transcripts. They have been topically arranged by editor Acharya Emeritus Judy Lief and cover a vast outline of Buddhist Dharma. We plan to read and discuss this material, now available publicly, and published by Shambhala Publications, Boston.

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 or at other online retailers.  As of May 16, we are reading Volume 2, titled “The Bodhisattva Path of Wisdom and Compassion.”

This program will be held at our Mid-Town Delek, the (handicap accessible) home of Muffie and Chris Noble-Power on Monday evenings. Snacks/light supper will be provided at 6:30pm with the book study starting at 7:00pm – 8:30pm.  Please contact Chris at 602-696-9694 or Muffie at 602 885 1811 for address/directions.
