ITrip Seattle will be listing Spring Street Center very shortly for short-term (less than 30 days) whole house rentals. The plan is to connect with families who will rent during the end of year holiday season. The halls will still be available for use once in-person Latihan resumes.
If you would like to participate in Subud USA’s Kedjiwan and Annual meeting on November 7th and 8th, you need to pre-register. Both events will take place via Zoom, and the Zoom link will be emailed after you pre-register. See the Subud USA web site to pre-register.
There will be a Zoom meeting on Sunday October 25th after Latihan. The Zoom ID for the call will be 988-202-1449. Please join if you are so called!
The Helper Dewan of Subud Great Seattle met via Zoom, Sunday, October 18, 2020, and discussed current issues. Sebastian Tedrow talked about the Tuesday, 10am Men’s Latihan in person at the Subud House. We have attempted to establish a telephone link but no one seems to be using that. Testing on the in-person Latihans showed that in-person Latihans are of most benefit. They are higher than doing it alone, simultaneous (not on the phone) and on the phone. In an actual phone Latihan Sebastian received that he DOES have helper responsibilities. He reported that he no one should do “ad-hoc” (unscheduled) Latihan at the Subud House.
The first In-Person Sunday Latihan for the Men will happen November 1 at 11am.
The clean rugs in the Men’s hall look beautiful again.

We are back to using the same call-in number each week, which is 988-202-1449. There will be a meeting on the 18th. If there are any women interested in hosting in the future, it’s not hard, and training is available. Contact Jim or Ramon if interested.
The Regional Helpers have been doing testing after call-in Latihan on Sundays, but some members are may be missing it because they don’t realize it’s happening. There have been some really good test questions, so you may want to stay a little longer on Sundays to be part of it.
Oswald Norton presented the current state of SGS finances to the Committee on October 10th:
We have a new phone number for the Sunday post-latihan Zoom meeting. The number is 988-202-1449. Please use this number for October 11th, and watch the SGS email on Wednesdays for updates as they occur.
