    Magic Leimes: Hi TH
    TH Ordinary: hi!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sophia: can you share a few memories about how you think about the last retreat in princeton ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: what sticks in my mind is how quickly e were able to feel comfortable around each other
    SophiaSharon Larnia: we*
    SophiaSharon Larnia: which was a relief to find out :)
    Bertram Jacobus: hello cal ... :-)
    Bleu Oleander: are these retreats for PaB people only?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but honestly, that one was a short retreat,yours is much longer and more intensive!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi Calvino
    Bertram Jacobus: i don´t think so blue ...
    Magic Leimes: Hello Calvino
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi Zon
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Zon :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey cal, we are all guardians but it´s open, right bert
    Bertram Jacobus: and hy zon ;-)
    Magic Leimes: Hi Zon
    Agatha Macbeth: (Makes a change from Arabella trying to rezz on me)
    Zon Quar: hi all
    Calvino Rabeni: Hello everyone
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i still don´t know what it means to be a ,,pab citizen"
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Cal
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi Agatha :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s there are often interesting discussions, but it´s open i don´t know if i even want to think about ,,pab people"
    Yakuzza Lethecus: @bleu
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it is for PaB members Bluu, and giggles at the thought of 'PaB citizen', like on another planet
    Bertram Jacobus: for me , it´s a sort of friendship with the group and the intrests which appear here yaku. and i got apiece of land (!) ... :-))
    Agatha Macbeth: Is there such a thing as a 'PaB person'?
    Calvino Rabeni: @agatha, good question
    Agatha Macbeth: TY :)
    TH Ordinary: is it a surprise when you meet at these retreats?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://playasbeing.wik.is/PaB_Retreats
    SophiaSharon Larnia: in my mind, no, just one willing to explore being during the 9 second micromeditations, just an openness to listen to others point of view, and an openness to share, too.
    Bertram Jacobus: very nicly summarised sophia ! thanks !
    Agatha Macbeth: nods to Sophia
    Calvino Rabeni: It is a question with several different right answers
    SophiaSharon Larnia: nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Mmm
    Calvino Rabeni: I'd say, there are unspoken expectations which one conforms to or resists
    Calvino Rabeni: And if you "behave" a certain way here that is different than other places,
    Calvino Rabeni: does that indicate "trying to be a PAB person"?
    Calvino Rabeni: Are there shared values?
    Bertram Jacobus: and bleu : i think, when you like to accompany a pab retreat ... you´ll have had "enough" contact to the group that you could do so - i don´t think there "has to be" a membership - or ? sophia ? am i wrong with that ?
    Calvino Rabeni: It is an identity thing, we have lots of overlapping identities
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i think you do have to be a guardian
    Bertram Jacobus: hm - so we seem not to be sure ? don´t know ? :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: HI Zen
    Zen Arado: Hi all:)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Zen :)
    Bleu Oleander: yes, that's what I meant .... attended only by people that go to PaB
    Bleu Oleander: you do need to be a guardian?
    Zon Quar: zen
    Yakuzza Lethecus: there are no fixed rules and what we say is speculative
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but i am on bertrams side i guess nobody would say NO in your case :)
    Bleu Oleander: it would be fun to go sometime
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but it´s about pab in real life
    Bleu Oleander: we took our group to Princeton and met Pema
    Bleu Oleander: who encouraged us to get into SL and Kira
    Bertram Jacobus: what is "your group", please, bleu ? :-)
    Bleu Oleander: so we kinda went on the trip first
    Bleu Oleander: http://www.spiritofthesenses.org
    Bertram Jacobus: ah. ty !
    SophiaSharon Larnia: thank you Bleu :)
    Bleu Oleander: we do salons in RL and now in SL
    Bertram Jacobus: since 1983 (!) ...
    Zen Arado: do they still have them in SL?
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Bertram Jacobus: what does that mean - "salons" ? talks ? about special topics ? :-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: usually on a really uncomfortable time for any westeuropean, sadly
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Bleu Oleander: sorry about that
    Bleu Oleander: time zones are tough
    Zen Arado: ah yes - I went to one but the times of others were impossble for me
    Bleu Oleander: our salons are conversations
    Bertram Jacobus: ah. and the topics are given ? in advance ?
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Zen Arado: did they have one about Plato's Cave?
    Bertram Jacobus: ok :-)
    TH Ordinary: yes
    Bleu Oleander: yes, that was our first one Zen
    TH Ordinary: ...in SL
    Zen Arado: I went to that - was interesting
    Bleu Oleander: http://www.spiritofthesenses.org/secondlifesalon.htm
    TH Ordinary: our second one was how can you know something you cannot see?
    TH Ordinary: with a biologist
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hmm
    Bleu Oleander: what is the best time for western europeans?
    Zon Quar: noon sl time
    Yakuzza Lethecus: anyone did the practice ?
    Calvino Rabeni: Yaku, I like to be reminded or held accountable on that regard
    Bertram Jacobus: did ? when ? the 9 secs ? or the 90 ?
    Calvino Rabeni: However in this case I did an IM instead :)
    Calvino Rabeni: I am intending to be more "present" in general though!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: nods
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i also try to find different approaches like listening to lectures of kabat zinn on mindfullness
    Zon Quar: who is he
    Calvino Rabeni: The practical question I'm thinking of - quality vs quantity in meeting here - if I attend often, I'm tempted to multitask, but then feel less presence.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: zon: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Kabat-Zinn
    SophiaSharon Larnia: for me its the other way around, I'm more likely to take the 9 sec in mylife more intensely when I attend often
    Yakuzza Lethecus: to hard to explain him in own words
    Agatha Macbeth: I think I have heard of him
    Zon Quar: thx
    Yakuzza Lethecus: nods sophia, i also try to reach that
    Yakuzza Lethecus: pab is the only place i have and even know about these topics i truest
    Yakuzza Lethecus: trust, since it doesn´t force anything in any specific direction
    Agatha Macbeth: nods
    Yakuzza Lethecus: even when it´s just general chat, but then we have our theme sessions :)
    Bleu Oleander: how do we find out about the these sessions?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: they are also announced on the pab homepage
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://playasbeing.wik.is/PaB_Theme_Sessions
    Bleu Oleander: is there a session for beginners?
    Bleu Oleander: it might be helpful
    SophiaSharon Larnia is lways a beginner
    Calvino Rabeni: Good idea
    Agatha Macbeth: Never too late to learn :)
    Bertram Jacobus: there is a book title as zen mind - beginner mind . and it says that always the beginner mind seems to be helpful . if i understand correctly ...
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, it is a quality of mind
    Calvino Rabeni: "shoshin"
    SophiaSharon Larnia: starting over fresh withoutthe notions weve picked up the way

    Agatha Macbeth: Sure could :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but would we ?
    Wol Euler: a dilemma!

    Wol Euler dithers indecisively.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s slicing my head in pieces
    Agatha Macbeth: tosses a coin
    Calvino Rabeni: Well, if you want to say things off the record, it's a good move
    Agatha Macbeth: Do we want to say things off the record?
    Calvino Rabeni: Unless Wol has a secret recorder there :)

    Wol Euler: but only for your own god
    Wol Euler: *good
    Agatha Macbeth: HaHaHa
    Agatha Macbeth: Freud strikes again!
    Calvino Rabeni: Is this a proposal, or a temptation?
    Agatha Macbeth: Probably both
    Calvino Rabeni: Often seen together, true
    Yakuzza Lethecus takes out a stick to spank those whom are going to be naughty in order to preserve order
    Agatha Macbeth: Oooh Yaku, your dominant side....
    Wol Euler: "Beatings will continue until morale improves."
    Calvino Rabeni: Preserve order? OR is it, suppress rebellion...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: only in my theme session

    Wol Euler is wondering how we'll recognize each other in Malta. Will there be nametags?
    Agatha Macbeth: The locals will all be avoiding you....:)
    Wol Euler: ah, that'll be the clue then.
    Wol Euler: look for the other outcasts.
    Agatha Macbeth: Or wear an orchid in your buttonhole?
    Wol Euler: a rose between my teeth
    Agatha Macbeth: (Ouch)
    Wol Euler: de-thorned of course.

    Zon Quar: nite all...zzzzzzzzzzzz
    Wol Euler: 'night zon, take care
    Agatha Macbeth: Zon, you didn't run around!
    Calvino Rabeni: something bright, to symbolize "play"
    Agatha Macbeth: C ya ;-)
    Calvino Rabeni: bye
    Calvino Rabeni: And try to dress like your avatar :)
    Wol Euler: oh, that would be tricky.
    Wol Euler: fun, though!
    Calvino Rabeni: SL as costume party
    Agatha Macbeth: If the clothes will fit ;-)
    Wol Euler: I could definitely do these boots in RL!
    Calvino Rabeni: That's why there's spandex

    Calvino Rabeni: Wol, can we get a teleport object from here to there?
    Zen Arado: doesn't seem so
    Zen Arado: and no barman
    Wol Euler: probably
    Calvino Rabeni: Serving the purpose of a mass exodus
    Wol Euler: have to get Storm to place it...
    Wol Euler: but yes, it would work
    Calvino Rabeni: With a bells logo
    Agatha Macbeth: Why not just walk?
    Calvino Rabeni: RIght, I'm on a diet
    Wol Euler: shall we?
    Calvino Rabeni: How far is it, anyway?
    Agatha Macbeth: Lets
