my apologies if this email appears too obvious.
However, some members have been emailing me regarding the readings. They ask if the readings are "requirement" for attendance.
Reading of the text is not a requirement. The only requirements are curiousity, enthusiasm, and a non-judgmental attitude however, a non-reading of the text can diminish the possibilities and the collective potential for insight. And from my experience, non-reading can unhinge a conversation particularly by hijacking the textual themes.
i hope this makes sense to most.
my apologies for any unintentional disrespect.
