[quote=“Mode_439, post:6, topic:968”]Well Attis, may I suggest the following advice as far as some organizational planning & execution?
How many people are you looking to work with?
1.1. What number do you feel is a workable # that you/all of us can comfortably handle?
The bigger the number may be rather difficult to manage…just a thought.
OAA Material - Do we all have to have our own material? I personally do not (yes I would my own materials books etc…just don’t have 'em)
3.1. Material distribution may have to be considered…if so how? And obviously in a way that we are all OK with. I’m sure most of us feel the same way I do - Sacred Texts are to be honored. Can the materials even be distributed to some practitioners without pissing anyine off???
Group communication - weekly group conference call? Skype? Tango from Google Market? I would’nt mind PM’ing everyone my number/putting together an Off Forum phone list.
Regional in-person meetings anyone? Shit, I’m in SW Florida man! I’d love to meet up if others are “local” ie a couple of states away…or even meet up here. I can put some of my brothers/sisters up for a day or two.
Let me know what anyone things. This path is extremely important to us…we CAN do this.[/quote]
I had no set amount for people to participate. I was planning on starting a thread to work through the 3 flames at a time. The more that want to offer their experiences in these workings the better. Based on the amount of people participating I was going to explore other options.
In my experience there is usually a lot of people to jump on something when it first gets started and the numbers steadily dwindle down as it progresses so only time will tell what options will be available/achievable.
As far as the OAA materials go I was under the assumption that those who already have access to it participate. I hate it, I don’t want to act like some elitist or anything like that. The bottom line is the material is the intellectual property of E.A., if he is ok with the lessons being posted/shared that would be fine but without his approval I will not do so. If it were my own stuff I wouldn’t care but I’m also not making my living based on it either.
As far as group communication was concerned if people would like to Skype, Tango whatever they are welcome to do so. I don’t know how well the previous Skype sessions went that redcircle had going. I likely wouldn’t be able to do much like that, I work 60+ hours a week and try to give my additional time to my family and magick. I was primarily going to use the forum for my discussion and results.
As far as group meetings that would be awesome but finding time and extra cash for travel may hinder many.
If anyone would like to take the reigns of this I invite them to do so. I was basically just trying to get a forum discussion group going.
