    Lucinda Lavender: how is your ...I forget.. maybe a group you meet with ...going
    stevenaia Michinaga: the iChing group with Pila?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...was thinking about this place, and dream circle I am part of...
    Lucinda Lavender: think about letting go and letting the structure lead
    stevenaia Michinaga: which group?
    Lucinda Lavender: I am more used to it at dream circle but like to imagine that it might be happening other places as well...
    Lucinda Lavender: I guess when everyone agrees to be silent together it is a form of allowing that goes on
    Lucinda Lavender: was remembering your mentioning a group that might meet on skype or sl
    stevenaia Michinaga: interesting how this group has a special cohesion
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, a group of tai chi group was starting a Tao discussion group outside our tai chi lessons

    stevenaia Michinaga: we shall see how things go since there is resistance to an online meeting
    Lucinda Lavender: ah:)
    stevenaia Michinaga: so there are leaders of sorts so far
    stevenaia Michinaga: but they have not met yet
    Lucinda Lavender: sounds interesting and like there is potential

    stevenaia Michinaga: class
    stevenaia Michinaga: is in our

    stevenaia Michinaga: not sure how much knowledge there is regarding Tao, perhaps just an interest to get stated
    Lucinda Lavender: thinking about the IChing and how it might give some hint of how to proceed with a meeting...
    stevenaia Michinaga: join Pila and the group :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: he had great knowledge of iChing and is very helpful in explaining from beginer to long time users like bruce
