PDS - Monthly Video Chats - December 2017 02 Dec 2017 18:18 #108118

Hi Everyone,

We are switching to Zoom for our next chat, which should solve all A/V & connection issues from last time. Details of when the chat is & how to join are below (if you join via computer you will be prompted to download the Zoom app). We're intending to record this chat using the built-in Zoom tool once we get the OK from everyone who has joined. This is so that folks who can't make it still get to join the fun after the fact.

A little bit of background:

-Who's Welcome? Everyone who is interested in deep practice of any form & open to talking about their experiences in meditation.
-Why Join? For fun. To deepen your practice. To share ideas & experiences. To make friends. For support. To geek out on unusual, common interests.
-Meeting Agenda:
1) Short intros & share how your practice has been
2) Recent hot topics or points of interest in your practice
3) Other topics: Dharma talks/books of interest, experiences with different techniques or maps, how does formal practice intersect with daily life, etc.
-Other Points: Speak from your own direct experience. Don't hog the floor & stay off the soap box. Play nice. Have fun :)

Hope to see you all there,

Noah

The call was a lot of fun this month. We will definitely stick with Zoom, as it provided a solid A/V experience overall. The recording can be viewed online here: drive.google.com/file/d/198_zGbOWLDxBMXB...Ych/view?usp=sharing

And the chat for the recording, which contains some really great links to resources discussed: drive.google.com/file/d/1l2KbRZbxgl0ZHFh...B_1/view?usp=sharing

-Qigong & energy work
-Tonglen
-Monasteries to retreat at & learn concentration
