Correct Skype Account Details

By Candradasa on Sun, 21 Apr, 2013 - 10:16Hi all, just a quick note to clear up any confusion about the correct Skype account to use for online meditation!

The correct user is thebuddhistcentre.com. Its full profile name will be listed as the buddhist centre online.

If you search for us you may come across another admin account we use for European calls, so please ignore it. We’ve renamed it so it’s extremely clear not to connect with us there.

Hope that helps!...

Meditation this week!

By Candradasa on Tue, 19 Mar, 2013 - 15:57Hello everyone! Now I’m back from our Buddhist Centre Online trip to India I’m really looking forward to sitting with you again! Many thanks to Animisha for her lead in the last few weeks with the online meditations - amazing to be so far away and know that a friend in the Outer Hebrides was helping keep our wee international practice kula* together!

This week we’ll be meeting to do the metta bhavana...

Skype Meditators group

By lokabandhu on Thu, 3 Jan, 2013 - 12:31Did you know there’s a Skype Meditators group on thebuddhistcentre.com? It’s for anyone who wants to arrange to meditate on Skype with others. This came out of a Facebook discussion on practising in a community online - but you don’t need to be on Facebook to take part!

And their first meeting is January 3rd at 4.30pm UK time (11.30am EST, 10pm Maharashtra). They say - “Join us if you can...

First Skype meditation!

By Candradasa 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!
