Joining the Conference via Video Conference
Joining the monthly conferences requires a few steps. So that you can have the best possible experience in using the video conference system, we have provided written instructions below as well as a video tutorial on how to use it.
Instructions on using our Online Conference system (available world-wide)
Our conference system allows participants to join via two methods: Audio-Only or Live Video. Audio-Only: which means that if you choose to ask a question, only your voice will be heard. Live Video: which means that if you choose to ask a question your voice and face show up for everyone to see. Remember, the only time your voice or face will show up is when you choose to ask a question. Otherwise, everyone is always kept on mute. You can take part in the conference without ever speaking.
To join the conference via our Online Conference system click on the link below. You will be asked for a name and an email address. Once you enter that information you will be able to take part in the conference.
IMPORTANT: We strongly suggest using an alias when joining the conference If you choose to join the conference via the conference system and choose audio-only, the name and email you entered will show up on the screen.

Joining the Conference via Telephone
For those who are attending via telephone, we send the list of numbers in the Conference Reminder email (sent 24 and 72 hours before the conference).
Conferences are recorded for those who cannot attend. Recordings will be stored on a web accessible folder (Dropbox) and will available after our first call on July 10th.

PLEASE NOTE: You will be able to view the recordings folder without having to create a Dropbox account. If the Dropbox sign-in window shows up look towards the bottom and click ‘No thanks, continue to view’. (Dropbox accounts are free if you are interested in signing up.)
Downloading The Conference Recordings
To download the conference recordings onto your computer or mobile device first click the recordings folder above. Once you are in the folder, click on the recording you wish to listen to. This will now take you to the Dropbox media player. You can listen to the recording on the media player or if you look to your top right you will see the ‘Download’ button.

Our Online Community Forum
Our Online Forum is an integral part of the Compassion Course for participants to support one another. It is where we share information, stay connected as a community, and growing as a group.
By reading and participating in group discussions, we can be part of a community of support in our learning. When we share our experience, practice, and learning together, we are likely to gain more insight… and generally have more fun and inspiration too.
Our new forum is really fun and accessible from computer or mobile device. So that you can have the best possible experience in using the forum, we have made a video tutorial on how to use it.
How to Join the Forum
Click on the link below to go to the Community Forum Login Page. It is recommended that you bookmark the login page when you get there. You will need to create your own username and password (see the Register section on the lower part of the page).
Please save your log-in information (write it down somewhere safe). We cannot retrieve that information for you.
NOTE: We did not create the Forum Terms of Service, nor can we change them. They were written into place by the forum service we chose to use (in other words we’re stuck using them). Even though we don’t resonate with the terminology used by the forum service, we figure they’re just doing their best to keep the communication flowing while supporting a level of care and mutual consideration. We can live with that 😉
