Our #MorningCrew sent its usual shout-outs between 4:30-7:00am PDT/7:30-10:00am EDT. Great chance to join the #OMCru if you're an early riser or in a different timezone!
Midday call to meditate went out at 11:30am PDT/2:30pm EDT today.
The #EveningCrew will be sending shout-outs between 6:00-9:00pm PDT / 9:00pm-12midnight EDT. Be sure to catch them for a great way to close the day.
You don't have to wait for scheduled shout-outs though! Anyone can send a call to Stop (the day's inertia) - Drop (what you are doing) - MEDITATE! (chant, mantra, pray, cook, whatever your mindfulness practice is). Just follow these simple steps:
1. Use the #OMCru hashtag to do a pre-meditation check-in ~ 5-15 minutes before you would like to begin your meditative practice (giving the folks joining you a chance to tell you they are present and to get ready!).
2. Let everyone know when to 'begin' - synchronizing the start for body, heart, and mind.
3. Do a post-meditation check-in/out: say farewells and jot down any reflections on Twitter and/or the OMC blog.
Getting to know each other is the best way to cultivate the community spirit of the Twangha (Twitter + Sangha), so let's share a bit about ourselves by answering today's community-fostering question:
How did the Buddha's teachings first enter your life?
Meditating together, growing together, learning together...miles apart.
Grasp the day, CREW! _/|\_ :-) \m/
