    Hi all,

    Due to the wonder of gobal time shifts, I see the tearoom is floating to 6am Mondays in New Zealand!

    I hope to join you...

    Chris, that would be awesome if you can join us next time. Are you really 18 hours ahead? Wow. I thought it was more like 14. I love how the global nature of our Sangha makes time seem almost non-existent (or at least extremely elastic).

    Thank you all that joined us today. It was a particularly engaging discussion this week. I really appreciate all of the different perspectives that everyone brings to the discussion as I continue to learn so much from all of you.

    As a reminder, our next Floating Tea House is scheduled for THREE weeks from today on Sunday, December 6 (there's a 5th Sunday in November that affects our schedule for this month). Hope to see many of you then!

    Sunday, December 6 is the second day of our Rohatsu retreat... Do you want to skip this one, or postpone until the next weekend?

    Ah! Good point. Either option works for me.

    Assuming that the following weekend may conflict (for some) with the Grass Roof Tea House, I wonder if it would be better to just skip the first instance of the Floating Tea House for December and keep our second date on Dec 20.

    What do others think?

    Gassho,

    If it's okay with others, I would prefer to keep it on Dec 20 -- I have it down in my calendar already, and December is already quite packed.

    Kind of a selfish reason, I suppose .....

    Hi Everyone!

    Just another quick reminder that the Floating Tea House is happening tomorrow/Sunday, December 20, at 12:00pm/noon Eastern (New York) time. You can find the link to the meeting room in the Treeleaf Now online calendar page.

    Please join us for an hour of conversation and friendship. And don't forget to bring your own tea, etc. The beverage service is still very slow due to geographic distances.

    Thank you all so much for joining us today! It was great to have a mix of new folks and "regulars" with everyone participating in the lively discussion.

    Treeleaf offers so many great benefits, but it is these sort of "live" opportunities that represent such a special opportunity (for me anyway) to come together in real time as a Sangha and practice, share, learn, and simply be together. I'm truly grateful to be able to share this time and practice with each and every one of you.



    Deepest bows,
    Rob
