    Aloka, I am sort of playing catch up, and not entirely sure what the meetup is, but, based on woodscooter's note above, I thought it was today (Friday, Nov 6). For me in the US, he had it at my 3:00pm, which is difficult due to work.

    I guess, point being, please don't be too disappointed. It may just be hard to do with a global audience.

    Peace,

    -Dave

    We are still experimenting to find what works best for this kind of meeting. And it is difficult to find a time for the event that suits everyone.

    With that in mind, we will change the day from Friday to Sunday, and make it a bit earlier. Let's see how that could work for more people.

    And of course we are open to all suggestions. Just post here on this thread with questions or answers about the weekly live online meeting.

    This coming week, the meeting will be on Sunday, November 15th at the following time:

    9am PST (North America, Pacific)
    11am CST (Central America & Mexico)
    12pm EST (North America, Eastern)
    1pm AST (Parts of Canada)
    5pm GMT (UK)
    6pm CET (Europe)
    9.30pm IST (India)
    1am AEST (Australia)

    Hi Dave, the activity within the chat group is very flexible - for example we might talk about different aspects of Buddhism and maybe decide to have a main topic to start off with ....and then go on to talk about something else completely by the end of the session, depending on the direction of the conversation.

    Kathy, that will be Eastern Standard Time. Sunday at noon, EST.

    It will be 1pm AST. Is there any chance of you looking in at that hour? You would be very welcome.

    I'm sorry to hear that Sunday is difficult for you, Esho.

    We moved the times and day to see if it's convenient for more people. We are still experimenting to see what works best.

    I hope that you can join in on another day.

    Woodscooter.
