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 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).

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

This study group meets every other week at our Mid-Town Delek, the (handicap accessible) home of Muffie and Chris Noble-Power on Monday evenings. 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 or at other online retailers.  Please feel free to call us with questions.
