Zoom meeting info
Here are the details for this online support group meeting on stress and stress-reduction techniques – including meditation.
First, make sure your computer, tablet, or phone is compatible with Zoom.
Also, please make sure you mute yourself when you are not speaking. The presenter is able to mute and unmute attendees, but it is easier if we all work together to ensure there is no background noise. Along those same lines, we recommend using headphones if possible. It helps eliminate feedback and makes it easier for attendees to hear more clearly.
Zoom allows for video and audio options. You are welcome to join via your computer and webcam device, tablet, or you can simply call in via phone. There is no requirement to turn on your camera if you do not want to.
We will start on time to respect everyone’s schedule. Thank you to Support Group Leader Gail Buch for setting up this meeting!
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns before or during the meeting, please contact Jeremy Bennett at [email protected] and he will assist you.
