The Autumnal Equinox Full Moon!

Dear Family & Friends,

Welcome to tonight’s Special Equinox Edition of our monthly Full Moon Meditation.

This time we’re open to all members of our extended family, whereas most months this is a all-women’s healing circle.

 I’ll be leading a new tune for the “Ra Ma Da Sa” chant, accompanied by piano, and followed by a gentle meditative layout to the high vibes of the Symphonic Gong.

This September the Full Moon is known as the Full Harvest Moon, as it falls nearest the Autumnal Equinox. When that confluence doesn’t happen, September’s full moon is usually known as the Full Corn Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the time of harvesting corn. It is also called the Barley Moon, as this is the time to harvest and thresh ripened barley. Do you like barley? I remember in my younger years enjoying warm bowls of barley soup. Alas, barley is not gluten free, so I haven't had it in years...

The Harvest Moon – whether it occurs in September or October – provides the most light at the time when it’s needed most – to complete the harvest!

So tonight we light more light into our lives and chant to spread it around our world.

Bless you all in all ways always!

Sangeet

Compatibility and Support Information for Computers / Smart Phone / Tablets

Please note that on some computers, phones and tablets the video can take up to 60 seconds to start (it is buffering the video stream).

Video support for mobile devices ("smart" phones and tablets) is often iffy because they use the newer and currently less compatible "HTML5" video instead of Flash.

Desktop/laptop computers (Windows, Mac and Linux) work best because they come with Adobe Flash Player. Please check that you have a very recent version of Flash. Video support for mobile devices, however, is often iffy. Mac users often have problems with the built-in browser "Safari". Install Google's "Chrome" browser or Mozilla's "Firefox" browser and use either one of those instead. (The difference between those two mostly has to do with privacy -with Chrome, being from Google, you surrender all your privacy [same as using Safari] and Firefox, being from the Mozilla Foundation, you retain much of your privacy.)

Android Smart Phone and Tablet users -In the recent versions of Andriod the built-in browser is called "Chrome." It is most compatible and usually works very well. If the video is not playing correctly, then there is not really anything that can be done other than try a desktop computer if one is nearby -that may work better for you.

Firefox-for-Andriod (free and found in the Google Play store) usually works well. We personally use Firefox-for-Android on our Android devices rather than the built-in brower (for a number of reasons including better privacy and also better compatibility with HTML 5 video). So you might want to give it a try!

iPads and iPhones purchased within the past year or so usually work fine with the video. Older versions often struggle to keep a reliable video connection and there really isn't a way to fix it.

In general, though, if the video stops and there is just a black box without a big "Play" button in the middle of it, "refreshing" your browser usually re-starts the video. Unfortunately, interruptions during live broadcasts are usually unavoidable. However, with the new cutting-edge technology we're using in 2016 combined with you using a computer / smart phone / tablet less than 2 years old can minimized interruptions and in some cases avoid them all together. It is just the nature of this young technology, but it will improve in the coming years.
