Each person joins from the comfort of their own living space. Please ensure that you have privacy for the duration of each session. Unless you have a quiet office and can ensure no interruptions, please do not attend these sessions while at work.
We will be meeting online using Zoom – a free app for Mac, PC, or smartphone. You must have an internet connection that is fast enough for decent quality on Zoom calls. If you are not sure that your connection is fast enough, please test it out on a Zoom call or Skype call with a friend and make sure they can see and hear you clearly. If you don’t have a Zoom account, you can sign up for a free account by visiting the Zoom website.
PLEASE NOTE. It’s important that we’re able to hear and see YOU on the calls. Being able to hear and see Irene clearly on past live calls in SBSM does not necessarily mean your internet is fast enough for us to hear and see you clearly. Please test out your connection with a friend if you have any doubt about your connection quality.
The Pod will meet six times on Sunday from 10 am – 12 pm North America Pacific Time (once every two weeks) over the course of 3 months. Specific dates are listed below.
Very important! There is tremendous power in YOUR presence, and when we join our collective presence in groups of 8, something akin to miracles can happen. So please only sign up for this experience if you are SURE that you can attend for the entire duration of each session during the following times. Also, please do not plan any big travel by plane (or some other form of transport subject to delays beyond your control) on the day before, or of, the Pod meeting.
Seth is one of the very few teachers and practitioners I know who consistently maintains a deeply respectful tone and language. He can consistently create space without creating a sense of overwhelm or crowding, and he inhabits a deep compassion that does not seem agitated or excited. The way it comes across to me, vs. other teachers, is much calmer, more integrated, and consistent. He never once teetered into being “right” which – in my experience – is truly a rarity.
I really value the co-regulation and the role modeling Seth provides, as well as the effective ways he worked with my questions and natural tendencies. I also gain a lot working in small groups like this one; there are so many ways people experience things and it opens up everything to be able to share these experiences.
Last thing I will mention about the group that could be useful for others who may be intimidated… On the continuum of introverted and extroverted tendencies — it is a great for both.
My own introversion tendencies love that I can sit quietly and safely for most of the time and learn from others’ experience. Absolute bliss! And yet I do then need to stretch into sharing and really being there with the rest of the group. And for those with extraversion tendencies — they get their time to shine. The stretch for them would be to sit quietly, listen, and practice internal integration for the remainder of the time.
As for the learning and practicing I’ve done during and since the Pod, Seth’s easy but surprising suggestions for me were fantastic. His willingness to teach some material that is not included in SBSM was also terrific and I continue to integrate all of it! I found that working with Seth is a wonderful natural evolution to the work of the 12 weeks of SBSM. – Erin (Pink) Mosley, erinmosley.com
