A few weeks ago we had our first on-line chat. It was awesome. The energy flowing between us was something you have to experience. We started at 12:00 American Standard Time on the Saturday, which would be this Saturday the 1st March. This works out to GMT, Greenwich Mean Time -8 hours which give a time in Europe, Germany and France of 21:00 and for me in South Africa as I am GMT+2 of 22:00. We chatted for an hour and the time just flew by.
I will be there, it will just be a general chat, anything you can think of, to starte with. So join me if you wish. If you are not sure of the time, there is a world clock thing somewhere on Google where you can check it out.
I want to make this a regular Saturday feature. Any of you on the 'other side of the globe' lets hear your views and we can see what can be worked out.
Look forward to seeing you all there.
Remember, it can be a bit disjointed. As you type a reply, somebody else is already answering, but that adds to the fun. One day Andrey will hook us all up by Skype or Google conference call and then we can all hear each other's voices!
What is said is not important, it is the energy and love we exchange that is!
Hi Ursula, thanks for organizing this. I would love to join you and everyone regularly on Saturdays for a live check-in. I'm taking a workshop next Saturday, but usually it's a good day for me. 10 AM PST / 12AM Central sounds good to me.
I want to add my thanks to Andrey's! I've been hoping we'd get something like this going. I also will be unable to join this Saturday, as I'll be at work. Ursula, I gotta ask...what's American Standard Time? I've never heard the term. I think that GMT-8 hours is Pacific Daylight Time, which is where I am on the west coast.
Thanks, I have no idea, it was something that came up and nobody could give me a straight answer, I get quite confused by the time thing. The last chat we had was on Saturday and whoever organised it, it was 12 noon there. So GMT-8 is Pacific time! Okay. I am GMT+2 (Johannesburg time - we only have one time zone, the majority of our population would not be able to cope with differnt zones).
Look, if you would prefer the chat on a Sunday, I am open to whatever time and day we can come up with. I know we can't accommodate everybody unless we have some real night birds on the Team, but at least one half of the globe should be able to get together. Let me know about Sunday and we can change it! I have only heard from one other person so far, so lets see what comes up.

Sundays are on and off for me. There's a morning dance that I go to sometimes that's from 10am - noon, usually getting together with friends from there afterwards.
Saturdays are usually pretty open for me.
...if you would prefer the chat on a Sunday, I am open to whatever time and day we can come up with. I know we can't accommodate everybody...
Ursula, whatever time is agreeable to the most people is the one I prefer. I don't usually work Saturdays, but my shifts vary. If I can make it, I will. Thanks for your wonderful efforts!
Looks like so far there are not many takers for the chat.
No problem. I will be logging on and if anybody wants to join me, that is cool.

I so thotoughly enjoyed the chat we had a couple weeks ago! The time flew by, and the energy was amazing. My work schedule is irregular. I usually work Sundays, and several weekdays, but it changes from week to week. So I can't commit to a regular time. I will participate whenever I can, and I do appreciate the opportunity!
Look forward to connecting with you Stefa! Yes, thanks for the advice about the clock.
Dave it is no problem. I thought and discussed it with Andrey, that if we set a regular time, then we all know and get used to the idea that there is somebody there at that time. Then whoever can, logs on and joins in. Somewhere we have to make a start and I am sure when people get to know about it, it will take off.
If anybody on the other half of the world, Aussie, etc. wants me to arrange another time to suit them, then we can do another chat at a different time. Whatever gets us all together to exchange energy. As you said, the last one was a blast.
