Desert Creek House is a community based place where each one takes co-responsability
for the functioning and upkeep of the place (meals, cleaning, etc).

At Desert Creek House we try to follow a daily strict regular program,
because it seems to be the only way to keep a minimum of discipline for regular contemplation.
People who stay at Desert Creek House are kindly invited
to join into these times of regular prayer or silent meditation,
but everybody remains of course free to participate or not.
People who would like to discover the richness of silence are welcome
even if they have no previous practice. No skills are required.
Participation of all helps each one to deepen spiritual life.

To be honest, the following schedule serves more as an inspiring guide than a rigid constraint in our daily practice.
We apply it with flexibility, according to our state of mind and available energy,
trying to find the right balance between discipline and adaptability.
