Dho Video Conferencing

Why not start one?

The nice thing about appear.in is that you don't need to download and plugins, programs, accounts etc....barrier to entry is pretty much clicking on a button that allows camera/mic to be shared.

In Zen Computer,
a light-hearted spiritual guide for the wired user, Philip Toshio Sudo
advises: “Don’t ask where the path is. You’re on it.” In that spirit, I
decided to try two different paths for my explorations: Insight Timer is an app which maps and connects fellow meditators online, and The Buddhist Geeks is a subscription-only community based in Google+

Google it and see what else you can find....

I just bookmarked the appear.it channel and said "hi" to dreamwalker briefly. Will probably use it in the coming days.

I received an update from Roger Sessions. There has been an enormous increase in interest in online meditation groups.

Roger writes: “We started 2019 with 40 groups meeting weekly. By the end of the year, we had 60, a 50% increase. We started 2019 with 807 people registered to meditate in our chapels. By the end of the year, we had 2001, a 248% increase.”

Here is the weekly calendar of sittings: https://meditationchapel.org/calendar/

I organise an online practice group for European time zones.
Our main practice session is Saturday mornings but we also meet at other times during the week.

If anyone is interested you can PM me.

Alternatively, I'm more than happy to share my experience in setting one up, if it's something you'd like to do.

Cheers
James
