6:50 - 7:00 pm Arrival
7:00 pm Meditation
7:15 pm Sharing: We share on something related to the Course; we agree to keep our sharing short so that everyone who wishes can share before 7:30; we agree to observe a brief moment of silence between shares while passing them clockwise - allowing new members to go last and introduce themselves; we agree to crosstalk as little as possible.
7:30 pm Reading and discussion: We read the text sentence by sentence, taking turns every line or so, and discuss as a group after a paragraph or two. On average, we cover one section (perhaps 7 to 9 paragraphs) per meeting, but we don't have to finish. We share what we are taking from the material. We discuss our understandings of the Course and how we can apply it in our daily lives. Everyone’s thoughts and feelings are accepted as right for them and valuable for everyone. No one is an “authority” on what it means, though we are all encouraged to share our understanding. We are all teachers and students, and what one learns and teaches at any given time is entirely the choice of that individual.
8:50 pm Wrap up and Meditation
9:00 pm End
