The Stop. Drop. MEDITATE! shout-outs have been flowin' already today! Be mindful, Crew, to give everyone a bit of time to check-in and get ready before giving the cue to begin meditative practice together! Also, be sure to check the #OMCru hashtag on Twitter for new CREWmembers who might be joining in but aren't yet in your timeline or an OMC Twitter list. The CREW is always growing - may we be welcoming and open to all, for all!
The scheduled Midday meditative meetup will be at 11:30am PDT/2:30pm EDT and the Evening Crew will be doing a shout-out around 6-7pm PDT/9-10pm EDT. Keep on the lookout! And don't forget to post check-out messages on Twitter and/or the Blog.
The community fostering question for today is:
Do you have a favorite sport you enjoy watching/playing? What is it and why?
And lastly, an answer to a question posed in the comment section of the blog:
Maria writes: "Sorry, I'm kind of new at Twitter and don´t really understand the # @ thing... I just want to join the #OMCru and don´t know what to do. Can you tell me?"
And the Online Meditation Crew says:
Welcome to the Crew! _/\_
The Online Meditation Crew primarily communicates with each other via Twitter. Over there --> to the right is a gadget that captures what's happening in our Twitter stream. The '#' symbol allows one to search on Twitter - we use the #OMCru hashtag to find meditative shout-outs and other CREWmembers. The '@' symbol is used on Twitter to direct a message to a specific someone. So '@TheZenOutlaw' means that one is talking to or about the Zen Outlaw on Twitter.
Do you have a Twitter account? It's quick and free to sign up! You can also follow along with the Twitter feed on our Blog (another great Crew resource!). But to feel the true vibe of our Twangha (Twitter + Sangha), you should hop on the Twitter ship!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask anyone in the CREW - or drop @TheZenOutlaw a message on Twitter."
Namaste! Breathe in the Day Crew! _/\_ <3 \m/
