    Dear @Forest @chrys @janschloesser @bobeng

    thank you 🙏 to you all for such a lively conversation on a First Friday at 6 pm CET [Amsterdam].

    For the ones joining from ‘western-US’ [ie SFO/LA] it was 9 am in the morning

    and for the ones joining from ‘eastern-US’ [ie NY] it was 12/noon.

    Thank you for showing up, joining and creating a lively conversation. 🙏🏻

    @Forest before you logged off on zoom, you made a sound, that I interpret and form the assumption that you might have wanted to copy & paste the links we shared in our chat. In case this assumption is ‘true’, I am sharing the links here: [note: you might need to copy & paste them to make them show up in ‘google’.]




    Fascinating for me was how the ‘dialogue unfolded’ [David Bohm].

    We started out with @Forest mentioning one of the art-restoration projects in a Russian church, working on ‘Ikons’ and how she experienced being there. @Forest, would you like to share the link of your website where some pictures of your work are displayed?

    @chrys shared how to intentionally switch perceptions, i.e. covering ones left/right eye and observe how things change. For more, please see the 3rd link above. I shared in relation to my work that I experienced how one’s intention can/does determine what we are able ‘see’/perceive [and how we label/name ‘it’]

    @janschloesser was sharing his work [his publication is the first link above] and how he was wondering ‘how to apply Iains’ work’. From there the conversation led to @bobeng sharing about the tibetan retreat he attended and how challenging it is to ‘work’ and ‘apply Iains’ work. We touched on the label ‘complicity’ and @Chrys rounded off with the inquiry into Jan’s work, because he was the first time ‘here’.

    Jan’s comment: “I didn’t know what to expect. But this exceeded my expectations.” made me smile. Thank you for that, Jan.

    @bobeng created a Whatsapp group that can serve us for example to have the day/time as well as the new zoom-link ready or ‘handy’.

    @pbarus lovely that you were travelling (I hope all went well and you enjoyed that) and that you loged in on the 4th of July, the US-Independence day.

    Just in case for others to make a note in their calendars too [in case they would love to attend in the future also – however this is no obligation, only an invitation to join ] here are our upcoming First Fridays:

    [I don’t know if this is working from here/this platform, but leave it in anyway – in case it does, it might be convenient.] -> Please download and import the following iCalendar (.ics) files to your calendar system.

    <b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>Time-zone converter – in case you live in another time-zone, can help you finding the equivalent to 6 pm CET in your time-zone.

    I hope I have covered ‘everything’ – being aware when writing that that phrase also entails that I can not cover all that has been said and being looked at last Friday. So, if @Forest @chrys @janschloesser and @bobeng would like to add / change something for completion, – then feel free. 😊😅

    I wish everyone who is reading this a lovely month and we see each other again on Friday, 2nd of August 2024 at 6 pm CET, 9am LA, 12/noon NY.

    With kindness,
