This is the Regular Guided Autobiography group of the Summer 2013 ten-week cycle. This group meets every Sunday at 1pm for the duration of the cycle.
By RSVPing for this Meetup, you commit to attend at least 7 out of 10 meetups in this time slot (which takes place at 1pm on Sundays).
The LOCATION of this and all future Meetups are in Morningside Heights on 113th street, near Columbia University. Exact address will be provided above.
The dates and subjects for the Regular GAB Group, Summer 2013 semester are:
6/9 - Read Health and Body, begin Sexual Identity
6/16 - Read Sexual Identity, begin Spiritual Life
NO CLASS 6/23 - NATALIE ON VACATION
6/30 - Read Spiritual Life, begin Death
7/7 - Read Death - end of semester!
7/14 - New cycle begins!
Please plan to attend all Meetups scheduled with this group if possible; absences hurt the whole group.
Please bring your one to two page (single or double-spaced) autobiographical excerpt on the subject of the week.
You should have received the handout on the subject at one of the previous information sessions. If you skip a week, it is your responsibility to email the organizer to ask for the handout for that week.
Be prepared to read aloud and share your writing piece with the group.
If you didn't have time to write this week, that's okay - please still come! It is important to support one another as best we can.
No cell phone use, please. It is vital that our full attention be devoted to listening to each other.
This is not a writing group, therefore leave behind your critical-thinking caps and be prepared to only provide support and love for each other, with at maximum light constructive criticism for those who ask for it. We are all working on a difficult task, writing our autobiographies, and this is leaves us very vulnerable. Please be sensitive to this.
This group - the Regular Guided Autobiography Group - is free, but please plan (if you can) to contribute a few dollars every week to cover the cost of refreshments. Or you can bring something to share instead! There is no cost to participate, however.
The location is the same as the previous information session Meetups, but if you have a need for the address again, you will receive it when you RSVP.
