Invitation to join Zoom to Join a session

Just prior to the time of the session I will send you a link to access the Zoom conference call​, although you can just USE THE SAME LINK sent to you on week one

 

If you have any trouble joining?

Text me on 0044 (0)7974817393

Or go through the Whatsapp group (to be set up)

I strongly recommend you join with a desktop or laptop computer (rather than phone, tablet, or iPad):

 

More functionality in Zoom environment

Easier access to harvest documents (that will gather collective insights and ideas).

However, if you only have access to iphone or iPad, its fine!

Values and conduct (& on Zoom)  

Safety.  Confidentiality.  Privacy.   Respect.   Sensitivity.

The Zoom course can only function with integrity under the above values.  Nothing divulged is to be shared outside of the zoom context, or even inside about another’s personal details unless with permission.

Stay authentic and true to you: in relation to the community, do what you are safe doing.  You are also free to express your vulnerabilities and to be received with care and kindness, non-judgementally.

Time

I invite you to be present for the guided meditation at the start of the session if you are able.  However, life does not always offer us the luxury of choice, so don’t sweat the small stuff!

Zoom etiquette

Stay on mute unless speaking to reduce background noise and ease of hearing.

Wear earphones in a more public place to keep the privacy.

 

Principles of Facilitation

Following the Felt-sense in the group and individual: Although there are principles and practices to be shared and there is a structure, my priority is to be with the living energy of the group and follow that dovetailing content as we go.

 

Since much of Living Presence’s approaches are ‘caught not taught’ the learning process is emergent and non linear, arriving at an intuitive sense of it rather than a purely cognitive understanding.

Decisions

All decisions are based on connection with the felt sense and not by consensus in the absolute sense of voting.

Fun and Play

These are supportive values important for learning, safety and connection.

Assortment of activities

To keep engagement, there will be an assortment of small group activities, interactive explorations, key points, guided reflections and attunements.

Respect

At all times you are invited to speak kindly, non judgemental and be supportive in a non-advice giving or fixing way through a deepening quality of Presence.

  • Find a quiet space free from distractions, where you can be comfortable, and make yourself unavailable if possible to the world around you.

  • Arrive 5 minutes early on Zoom so you are in a relaxed and receptive state.

  • It’s worth investing in a headset or hands-free accessory, it reduces background noise and is comfortable.

  • If you are in a busy area, use your hands-free it affords privacy especially on a course where others may speak and wish not to be heard beyond the group.

  • Silence your mobile, even preventing the buzz of incoming messages (unless of course you have pressing reasons to not to).

  • If using Zoom, have phone handy, so we have a plan B and we can reach each other if there is a disconnect with the internet!

  • Have handy a sheet or two of paper and a pen, just in case!

  • Best case scenario is to create a bit of space and time for yourself afterwards so you can have a period of settling prior to meeting the world!
