Tao now uses Zoom Cloud Meetings for all video appointments, as explained below.
Tao’s Students – have questions for Tao about your practice and experiences with it? Want to share a new development?
If it is a question you feel comfortable asking publicly, and you can attend the weekly Open Discussion/ Q&A Sessions, please ask your question or share your experience there.
If the question or experience is something you wish to remain private, or if you cannot attend an Open Discussion/ Q&A due to your schedule, please email Tao at info1 @ taosemko .com (remove spaces) with times and days that could work for you, converted to Tao’s current timezone:
Tao’s home timezone:
March 12, 2017 to November 5, 2017: UTC-4 / GMT-4 : US Eastern Daylight Time
November 5, 2017 to March 11, 2018: UTC-5 / GMT-5 : US Eastern Standard Time
Tao accepts appointments Monday-Friday, 10am – 8:30pm US Eastern, based on availability and his other teaching, family, and business responsibilities.
Video Meeting Platform:
Due to quality issues with the recent updates of Skype, Tao is now using Zoom.us as his free videochat platform.
- Download Zoom for your computer (Mac, PC, Linux) from the Zoom.us website here
- Install it for iOs from the Apple Itunes App Store here (listed under Zoom Cloud Meetings)
- Install it for Android from the Google Play Store here (listed under Zoom Cloud Meetings)
Tao will email you the Meeting Room ID to use (and current password, if any) when you make your appointment. If a phone is more practical, please notify tao in your scheduling email and give him your cell#.
How much time may I schedule?
Tao’s KAP students: 1 or 2 nine minute appointments each week during your course. Please avail yourself of the Open Q&A first, where possible, for any questions of a non-personal nature.
Members of Tao’s Practitioner Group members may use one private Q&A per month in addition to the Open Q&A opportunities. Students currently enrolled in additional KAP or Tantric Yoga Curriculum courses or sadhanas, or Tao’s Mentorship Program, may use these Private Zoom.us meetings weekly where it is useful.
Previous Students not currently enrolled in a course are encouraged to use the sessions when they need clarification on a practice or principle from their courses, or to share or inquire about an experience stemming from their course practices.
