    Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hi folks
    For anyone who is interested and able, to Fugen, Hans and I are going to make a commitment to sit every (at least one of us!)Sunday @ 3pm (New York) or 9pm (Tibro, Sweden/Cologne, Germany), 4pm (Fredericton New Brunswick) to share a cup a tea. Please feel free to join in.

    We will post below where and how we will be meeting a head of time in this thread as we explore software that will meet our needs.
    Here are a couple of ways to meet up (again we will let everyone know ahead of time which we are using)

    Only a couple of requirements:
    One: please use headphones to prevent echo! (feedbackbackbackbackbakcwhat?what wha...Ha ah aha)
    Two: please Say "hey this is [yournamehere]", and then speak freely (to prevent confusion and promote getting better acquainted )

    Here are a couple of ways we will be meeting (Get skype if you would, please and PM Fugen with your skype name)

    Skype

    http://www.videoconference.com/ - We will make the room a head of time and post the url to join (one limit, it hold only 6 @ a time so if we have more folks than that we will move back to voice chat via skype.

    Gassho
    Shohei/Fugen/Hans! (not 3! )

    Re: The Tea Party

    It's unfortunate that you all are calling your gathering 'the tea party,' as there is currently a hate-filled, racist, conservative American political movement that goes by the same moniker... :evil:

    That said, I hope to eventually figure out how to join in on things like this, to get more deeply involved with Treeleaf. Skype definitely sounds like something I should get--do I understand correctly it's of minimal cost?

    Re: The Tea Party

    Oh these things are all free!!! skype cost you just your Time to setup and use its brilliant really. AS for setting it up, I could help ya out if you wanted, instructions are straight forward enought so it could be easily done over msn or what not.

    Its really just downloading the program and installing it. Then you launch it, create your account, check your settings (if you have a webcam plugged in, head phones and microphone your rocking already skype will chose them for you most times) and you just add another person to your call list like you would for msn or other chat type programs.

    As for the name...I was, until now, unaware of these(most for that matter) political bandits in any country! that said its just a title for the thread the actual meeting could be called ... Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips fwiw
    Actually... .LOL good idea

    Just let me know if you need some assistance ill do what ever I can.

    Re: The Tea Party

    Hello Stephanie,

    I guess since Canada, Sweden and Germany don't have a Tea Party movement, we are trying to do our own part to give these innocent two words a positive meaning Iam more thinking about Alice in Wonderland!

    Skype is free when it comes to one computer calling another computer btw, although with conference calls one can only use audio. All you need is a headset!

    Just give it a try. It takes less than ten minutes to set it all up.

    Come join the REAL Tea Party movement!

    Gassho,

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Thanks, Shohei, I will. Might take me a few weeks to get organized enough to do this, or maybe I'll catch a fire and do it in the next few days... who knows.

    And I think 'The Tea Party' was a great name--connotations of hospitality, alertness, the Mad Hatter :lol: --but unfortunately now my primary association with the phrase 'The Tea Party' is that political movement. I'm sure I'm not the only American who would have read the thread title and initially assumed it was a political thread, so it probably was a good call to change it, so as to divert potential rant energy away from the thread :wink:

    I have skype and I've video chatted with no feedback. Is there a particular problem with multiple people or something?

    I have headphones - that should work just fine?

    I was going to sleep today, but I'm wired. I'll PM Fugen my skype name and maybe you'll see (hear?) me at 3PM today.

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hi Chet,

    as far as I know multiple user conferences are audio-only...though Skype will shortly introduce a video-call option for up to five people simultaneously (which will ultimately cost something).

    See ya later, Gassho,

    Hans

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Well today I think we will try the videoconference.com link up top. Ill hit the site before tea-time and post the url to join. supports up to six. Skype is our fail safe. if all else fails we can goto skype and have an audio only chat

    yeah Chet, sometimes its okay to get away with speakers and mic, however, multiple people means multiple sound level settings so some on may have their mic cranked along with their speaker and so every word everyone says loops back into the room...ala the first jukai ceremony (awesome effect there though!)

    See yas in a couple hours.

    First it wouldn't let me get video because it said I have no webcam.

    Then I tried to go back in Safari and now there's no room for me. Why do I bother with this shit?

    Hey guys,

    I'm sorry if I was a bit 'out of control' last night - the worse the sleep deprivation gets, the less focused and worse my ADHD gets. If I offended anyone or ran anyone over in the conversation, I'm very sorry.

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hey Chet,

    I can only speak for myself, yesterday was good clean fun. Pebbles polishing one another. The heart of all we're doing here is and should be Zazen IMHO, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy playing around with idea-flowers in space once in while!

    I'll tell you how the sesshin went on Friday

    Gassho,

    Hans

    P.S. Just don't forget the walnut tree shell or no shell...

    Something that you should be aware of that just doesn't come across in my communication style is that I'm often hyperbolic - so when I say things like 'So what?' and 'Who cares?' about the shell of the walnut, I'm not really daft enough to think they aren't important. In fact, they are so important that I DO want to do Jukai, sew a Rakusu, learn Oryoki, and the other 'rituals' of Zen. I just hope that they don't get so much screen-time that the real heart of the practice gets lost...and so sometimes I'm hyperbolic in defense of what, to me, is the heart of the practice.

    Heyho,

    don't worry so much Chet. If you step on anybody's toes too much, I'm sure that person would dare to say "ouch"....or others might say "ouch" for him/her.

    I hope to be joining you all again very soon. I won't be able to participate this Sunday, but I'm hoping to make it in a couple weeks. I don't have a headset, so I guess I'll have to try getting one. We are moving very soon and will be staying in a hotel for quite some time until we find a new house to live in. We will be refugees for some time.

    take care all,

    Hiyas
    Icant make it today as ther have been thunder storms all afternoon here and it's taken out my Internet for the time being. Im posting this from my "3G enabled tablet device" literally balancing on the edge of the bathroom sink facing the wall ( techno-pretzel zazen?)to get a bar of cell service.

    If things come back up in the mean time I will be right there!!

    Hi.

    THe thought came up that we could have an specific "theme", some sort of ground on which to base our talks on sundays.
    Whats your thoughts on that?
    If you do have any such "themes" you'd like to put forth please do so, either here in the thread or pm me or shohei.
    And of course, these are just for the "frame" of things, things will still be more or less as normal on sundays...

    I think this is a fantastic idea. Being that this Sunday is American Independence Day, maybe we should discuss the delusion of freedom and what it means to Americans, socially, politically and spiritually.

    Just a thought...

    Hi.

    For those who want to, there's an skype 5 betaversion out.
    It features a five-way videoconference for instance.
    Link for download (doesn't work mac though, so...)
    http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype/ ... dows/beta/

    It would be nice if some of you who participate at the teaparty would download this, and that we could try it out for future use...

    Thanks for your practice.

    No, apparently the Beta doesn't work for mac, but it should not be any problem hooking up with macusers that have the old version when someone runs the Betaversion.

    Stephanie:
    I usually jump online just before the scheduled time and send Fugen a message, (on skype or PM) I think he usually sets up the calls, then just wait for the call and awnser. pretty easy, though Fugen can correct this if I am wrong, or perhaps changed.
    See ya there! have a great day.
