Face-to-Face Conversation with a Friend
(If you would like to schedule a time to talk, please click here.)
We all walk through dark nights, and we often have no one to walk with, particularly in the deeper questions about God, spirituality, mysticism, philosophy, religion, the nature of reality, and life in general. Religion, ironically, can sometimes create a lot of trouble for us, and we may want to simply chat with someone about the road we’re travelling, who can walk together with us.
For these reasons, I like to chat with people who are travelling these roads. I am just a friend, someone who you can simply talk with about life. I am your equal, and we will talk as equals. The purpose of this dialectic conversation is to help us both look more deeply in ourselves and connect with our true Self, to know ourselves and reality better, and to grow in community and consciousness.
Does it cost anything?
No. As I note in other places on the website, I give all of my time as a free gift to you as part of a gift economy.
If after we meet you desire to give a gift to me, that is entirely up to you, and it is always what you choose to give, and however you want to give. Gifts are always a free-will offering, which is what makes them truly a “gift.” See my long-form post about that here.
How does it work?
You simply visit this page and you enter into the videoconference automatically (the first time your internet browser software will ask you to grant permission to access your camera/mic). Since most conversations will be private, I can password-protect the room once you have entered it, so that we can talk just one-to-one.
Schedule a time to talk
If you would like to meet with me on a particular day and time, please use the scheduler below:
Talk another way
If you would prefer to not talk via video face-to-face, for whatever reason, that is okay too. We can chat via Facebook Messenger, SMS text messages, instant messages, Marco Polo, chat, email, phone, or another way. Or if you live near me, we might be able to meet up in person in a coffee shop somewhere. I’m even willing to be your pen pal by “snail mail” postal mail, if you prefer that. Please contact me if you would like to talk in one of these other ways.
We may also use this room for group discussions, if there are some who would like to get together online to talk about a particular topic. This makes it easy for us to meet up, and we can still password-protect the room if we choose, so only those who are invited may come in. Or we can leave the door open. Please reach out to me if there is a particular subject that you think would be an interesting group discussion, and we can see about scheduling a time to meet up.
Techy fine print
A few instructions: In this Friendship Room, you can toggle between tiled or filmstrip views of the participants in the room using the “Toggle Tile View” icon at the lower-right. You will also find the settings there if you click on the three dots, which will allow you to make adjustments to your devices, or toggle full-screen mode. To leave the room, simply close the page, click the red “hang up” button, or click to a different page on the website.
Mobile users: If you want to join the Friendship Room via a phone or tablet, it is probably best to use the mobile app, rather than the website. The site will notify you of this if you visit it. The free app is called Jitsi Meet, available on both iOS and Android. The room name is ThyMindOMan2.
If you have any technical trouble, please don’t hesitate to contact me, and I’ll see if I can help sort it out.
