Well That was super cool! A Tea sharing teleconference over skype. I never expected that.
Listening to the sound of the bell (well ok, it sounded a bit like an alarm clock -- but mindfulness can transform that.. maybe we need to ask skype for an "invite bell" feature!) Bowing in, and bowing out -- type (bow) to get that -- dancing figures and funny faces, stories, poems, a virtual skype tear, photos, video links, songs, (each person singing a line, since all of us singing together would overload skype). Three of us monastics shared some tea together while listening in and sharing, Sr. Chan Khong appeared, Brs. Phap Trien Vien Tuan did a impromtu rap, "for life", and Br. "Fast Track" and Sr. Jewel made guest appearances. Inspiration online. Not as good as in person for sure, but still amazing! here's the quote from Neslon Mandela that Bart shared...
It seemed we learned that it might be good to have a facilitator planned beforehand -- to get things going right away -- wonderful job on that Patrick! Also to do a brief check-in to hear everyone's voice and see how people are doing might be wise to connect the group (since you can't see each other).
OK folks go for it. Organize a conference call Dharma sharing over skype with your friends! I highly recommend it.
