I have a sharepoint enterprize site  
lets say http:\\\SitenameA

at the root of sitename a i have created a Calendar List item.  

and i have started a team meeting workspace
lets say http:\\\SitenameA\team-mtg\

i would like to take the calendar from SITENAMEA and Display it in TEAM-mtg
as a web part

Not a seperate list, but a view of the same item.  
The calendar does not show up as a possible webpart to use in this area...
any ideas on how to share this acrost sites?

    If you are fine with displaying a list view instead of the calendar view of the items than I think you could do this:
    Using SharePoint designer, you could insert a Data View webpart. Then in the Data Source Library, click "Connect to Another Library".  In the wizard, click add and browse to the site that contains the list you want to display (note, you want to browse to the site only, not the specific list).  Select the site and name the new connection.  This will show you all the data sources in that site when you return to the Data Source Library so you can add to the DVWP.
