First Skype meditation!

Posted by Candradasa to Online Meditators on Tue, 1 Jan, 2013 - 22:29Hi all,

Just to say Ben and I and others have arranged our first meeting - January 3rd at 4.30pm UK time (11.30am EST, 10pm Maharashtra). Join us if you can and let’s sit together. Maybe we could find some space too to discuss further meetings, other tech options (eg. Google Hangout), etc.? I’m making 90 mins free for the whole thing - hellos, meditation and discussion. Hope to see you online soon!
