Hi everyone! We’re going to have to shift how we do our weekly meditations now that the new Google+ is harder to avoid. It’s not possible to make events with hangout links as we’re used to doing. 

For tomorrow’s meditation - Friday 27th at 11am EST/4pm UK - we’ll meet on Skype. Connect with user thebuddhistcentre.com then message us and we’ll add you to the call. We’ll work towards something more permanent as soon as possible!

See you for some beautiful space looking at the insight aspects of contemplating the way things are!

This sounds like a great idea! So I’ve joined Google+, but just cant work out how to access/join a Hangout? Could you give some instructions for those of us who have not used this thing before? Thanks.

Hi there, 

It looks as if Google + is forcing the change to its new format, which excludes Hangouts from pages associated with institutions (in this instance, us!) rather than individuals… You can still click on the link at the bottom left of our page which allows you to view the old format. On this version, if you have joined our circles you should see the private Hangout link. 

From next week we’ll try alternative approaches - using public hangouts or finding a way to advertise a personal hangout link to the space. Apologies if you were caught out by this today!
