The mix of boundaries and freedom in this group process fits me like a hand in a glove. I love the way the structure of an evening lets us indulge our intellects and personalities in the first hour and then set them aside in the second hour to actually do a practice. I love the fact that the rotating leadership forces each of us to step up to the plate without letting any of us become the guru. And I especially love the way the "homework" practices during the week compel us to express our learnings in our lives--to really "chop wood, carry water."
I want to explore the possibility of using this process in a truly interfaith context, integrating the three faces of God.
