Big Book Awakening Phone Meeting
Wednesday’s at 6 p.m. PST – Beginning January 2017
Participant Access Code: 984245#
About the Meeting:
This is an open for anyone struggling with eating disorders/food or body issues. We ask that you only share if you have done the work through the Big Book Awakening process, though anyone is allowed to ask questions. This meeting is patterned after the Big Book Awakening crossfire meetings in Southern California.
DISABLE CALL WAITING
Before joining the meeting, it is best if you temporarily disable your call waiting feature if you have one on your phone. Press *70 before dialing the phone meeting number. (For example: *70-1-712-775-7035) The reason why this is important is that if you receive a phone call during the meeting and you are unmuted we may all hear your phone conversation and it can be embarrassing because you do not know that we are listening. Other problems can arise too such as the phone not properly hanging up and the meeting hearing a repeated recorded message to please hang up.
If you do not have to disable call waiting, dial the number:
When asked for the access code enter: 984245#
Keeping yourself muted is important otherwise everyone can hear your background noise and it can be very disruptive to the meeting.
You enter the meeting muted. You will hear the leader but the leader cannot hear you.
To unmute press *6 on your telephone keypad. You will hear a voice telling you that you are unmuted.
MUTE WHEN DONE SHARING
After you finish sharing please press *6 to mute yourself. If you do not hear the voice telling you that you are muted or unmuted, try pressing *6 again. If the muting function is not working, please hang up and call in again.
OTHER SHARING TIPS
If you have a mute function key on your telephone keypad we ask that you use the *6 key on your keypad instead. The *6 key ensures the greatest sound strength for the entire phone line.
It is best if you do not use a speakerphone for sharing. We may not be able to hear you clearly because the sound is too faint or we may hear an echo. Some speakerphones will not mute even when you are pressing your *6 key. Speaker phones even when muted, may cause phone bridge static. This weakens the quality of sound for the entire phone meeting.
Headsets or earpieces can also provide problems at times. Again we may not be able to hear you clearly because of static or low volume. It best not to use a headset or speakerphone when sharing.
Toll call charges or plan minutes may apply when calling into the phone meeting. Contact your phone company if you have any questions regarding incurring costs.
Sometimes, without much advance warning, teleconference companies change the telephone numbers used to call into the meeting. Please be aware that this is an infrequent occurrence. Usually when this happens there will be a message providing you with the new phone number. The access code generally remains the same.
