Here's some administrative updates....
Our next call will be on November 6, at 1 p.m. Pacific - that's late in Europe and early morning in Australia the next day, but it had the most votes.
I really love the calls and learning so much about you all. I also encourage everyone to chat with each other and make their own calls.
Yet, I am going to try something new in January and into 2019. To cover the costs of Zoom, and the time and energy I put into facilitation and scheduling the call, I will be asking for $3-5/ month donation, for our typically 1.5-2 hour calls.
Zoom costs $15/ per month and I usually spend about 4-5 hours making it all happen. An hour after, regrouping and napping.
I never wanted to do this but lately it feels like an affordable exchange would be more appropriate - something I learned in Tuscany - I lost some money on that trip with all the changes in sleeping arrangements, and the collective time D and I spent arranging it was about a 40-hour work week.... I do feel drained on occasion after scheduling and providing these services and it's something I really needed to learn about myself.
I am also going to limit each call I facilitate to five people or less, so that everyone has a chance to share and receive feedback (if desired). I can be much more present when there is fewer people and more present people. For some reason when someone chips in a few dollars, the commitment to show up changes. Not in all cases but some.
That means less people, getting up and down, drinking wine, eating, having side conversations, and just not being present on the call. It's so hard for me to focus when people pop in and out, turn the video off and back on, and my personal pet peeve showing up late...then sharing your experiences just before ducking out or having a side conversation and not listening to anyone else's... Not when I'm facilitating, please.
Another Option: Each of you take turns being the facilitator on the call each month. You are in charge of the time and setting up the Zoom webinar. Without a paid subscription, the call can only be 45 minutes, but it is a quality service I want to pay for.
You can make your own themes and if you want to make it a happy hour with snacks and drinks - why not??? Up to you. I'm good either way. You can use the Ryver topic section labeled calls to do so. Open to feedback....

THE BANYAN TREE BOOK
Joanna (mainly) and I have finished the first ever Banyan Tree publication. You can check it out here or on the New Moon Wednesday when I will officially email it out. Joanna, you are an amazing designer and truly captured the essence of our collective creation. I cannot thank you enough!
This book sets the stage for what the Banyan Tree represents - a sovereign collective of souls (embodied and not, for lack of a better way to say it) and it includes your personal stories and art about the tree. So much goodness and gold in there.
A huge thank you to all contributors!!!
When I was driving somewhere across the desert in September, I saw myself as Sar'h along with El Morya floating under the Banyan Tree. We had been using our hands and arms to commune and then as if on cue, we both folded our hands in our laps, suspended under its branches. With the folding of our hands in our laps, we closed our eyes.
"Sleep to dream," El Morya "said" - you know he doesn't use words...
It was a symbol of completion - not in finality - but the seed has been planted, the consciousness has started to flow - what our tree of creation has to teach about creation is there for anyone to watch or sovereignly engage with at anytime, with a special invitation each new moon.
However, I sense for me (as floating Sarah facet- ha!) and El Morya, it is just time to chill (wait is not the right word because it implies linear time) for a bit.
Instead, while simultaneously floating under the Banyan, I'm going to let the Sar'h facet of myself continue to write about - realizing you're already realized - and our book that is for people moving from New Age/ spirituality mentality into the New Energy consciousness.
Enough for now and spacial cosmical desert gathering in June to be announced soon.
Thanks everyone for being here. Please enjoy Ryver (and save what you want on your personal computer) until our subscription runs out in March 2019.
Este has found another free space, which saves me from the donation begging process. The Patreon funds have been used up and I am now funding all this myself, which I am happy to do, mostly, but tempered with also honoring my energy served.
See you on Tuesday!!!
