“ I was delighted but not surprised by my first meeting. I was comfortable speaking, and enjoyed listening. One guy kept harping on "giving up the self," a phrase he read in a book. Everyone including me disagreed with his interpretation of the concept. I was not sorry he was there; he stimulated a lot of discussion and did not take over the group in any way. ”
