Every Day - CASUAL TOURS AND BRIEF SINGING BOWL SESSIONS by Jack Sisk. Everyone is welcome to visit the Center and see why so many people consider it one of the safest and most sacred place they’ve ever been. When time permits, which it usually does, Jack loves to introduce people to the facilities, programs and experiences the Center offers. The standard tour now takes 90 minutes, but longer tours are possible at times, and tours can also be shorter if you prefer. Even the standard tours include introductions to many religious/spiritual traditions, are very experiential, and typically end with Jack playing and toning with a crystal singing bowl, which gives a brief introduction to the Center’s large set of those bowls. (Many people say the full bowl sessions provide the most profound meditative experiences they’ve ever had, and people often go beyond this into visions, spiritual insights, emotional releases, physical healings, and experiences of the divine.) No appointment is necessary, but it’s wise to call to check Jack’s availability. There’s no charge for the standard tours. Donations are welcomed to support the Center; but donations always are purely voluntary, and we certainly don’t want people to avoid coming to the Center due to financial considerations.

As always, a number of our events are offered on a donation basis. During our first eight years, we almost always suggested donations of at least $5. However, given the Center’s financial condition, it’s become necessary to increase the suggested donation to $10 for some of those events, and to $20 or more for a few. Please understand that donations are still entirely voluntary, that donations of every size are truly appreciated, and that we don’t want anyone to decide not to come to these events for financial reasons. The Center’s priority always is to be of service and fulfill our mission as a charitable organization, rather than to make a profit (we never have). Please support us to the extent you can and to the extent you feel the Center is of value to you.

EVERY WEEK

Sunday - FAMILY GATHERING (TALKING CIRCLE) facilitated by Jack Sisk, 12:15-1:45. We come together as a loving family to honor and celebrate each individual’s sacred identity and the divine reality that links us together. We connect to each other and to the one reality that underlies all religious and spiritual traditions. This is a sacred and confidential Talking Circle - we pass a talking stick and learn from each other. Everyone is committed to be loving and compassionate. You might hear readings from various traditions and authors, music from various cultures, and much more. Considerable support and insights are generated. Participation is encouraged, but not required. Donations are requested to support the Center (at least $10 would be greatly appreciated, if you can afford it).

Sunday - SILENT MEDITATION AND PRAYER GATHERING led by Jack Sisk, 4:30-5:15. Each gathering centers on a 30 minute session of silence for meditation or prayer. This began as a meditation gathering, but we’ve expanded it to include people who would prefer to pray - everyone is invited! Brief meditation instruction (in Buddhist and Hindu forms) can be provided prior to the gathering by appointment, and the period of silence will be followed by an opportunity for discussion. Donations are requested to help support the Center (at least $10 would be greatly appreciated, if you can afford it).

Tuesday - SPIRITUAL STUDY GROUP - WHAT IS ENLIGHTENMENT facilitated by Tim Altpeter and others, 7:00-8:30. This study group addresses various current books, videos and subjects. Every week is a new experience. This very animated group rides the wave of current spiritual developments. Donations are requested to support the Center (at least $10 would be greatly appreciated, if you can afford it).

Thursday - REIKI/ENERGY CIRCLE, facilitated by Jack Sisk and Jim Lane, 7:00-10:00. All energy healing modalities are welcome in this powerful circle of healing, spiritual energy - a circle we’ve held nearly every Thursday for almost 13 years. This particular Circle is open only to practitioners. We start with a talking circle and brief meditation, and then share our healing energies. You may leave whenever you’re ready. Jack and Jim take turns facilitating these Circles (Jack on the first and third Thursdays, Jim on the second and fourth). Donations are requested to support the Center (at least $10 would be greatly appreciated, if you can afford it). Note: We now begin the Circle promptly at 7:00 (in recent years we really haven’t started it until 7:30), and we end at 10:00 (previously 11:00).


SCHEDULED EVENTS


BY APPOINTMENT

By Appointment - GROUP RELIGION/SPIRITUALITY TOURS OF THE CENTER by Jack Sisk. Jack offers private group tours of the Center outside our regular hours by appointment, presenting a wide array of religions and spiritual traditions, and numerous opportunities for powerful spiritual experiences, culminating in a 10-minute introduction to the crystal singing bowls. These tours are very popular. The shortest tours take about 90 minutes, and the longest can take two or three hours (we’ll work out the time with you). These group tours are scheduled in mornings or evenings. We require a minimum of five people for these tours. A donation of at least $10 per person is suggested, except that students are free.

NO LONGER OFFERED - PRIVATE GROUP SACRED SOUND CRYSTAL SINGING BOWL SESSIONS by Jack Sisk. We now prefer that groups come to the regular bimonthly sessions as it’s difficult to accommodate more than two group singing bowl sessions in any month.

NO LONGER OFFERED - INDIVIDUAL SACRED SOUND CRYSTAL SINGING BOWL ATTUNEMENTS by Jack Sisk. These are no longer offered because the group sessions have become so comprehensive and effective.

By Appointment - MEDITATION INSTRUCTION by Jack Sisk. Jack has considerable experience in Hindu and Buddhist meditation practices. He’s especially able to help beginning or struggling meditators. Donations are requested to support the Center (at least $10 would be greatly appreciated, if you can afford it).
