Meeting with others in a group contributes fundamentally to learning about and applying the ideas of this teaching. Learning touches all three of the primary parts of our nature: the body, thinking functions, and feelings. A helpful atmosphere appears when people from diverse walks of life come together to share questions, observations, and in-the-moment work to be here, that is, to be present to all the parts of ourselves.

Meetings clarify and deepen a member's own questions. They support lines of interest and personal striving that drift from sight in daily life, in part due to the force of ongoing life concerns and also due to our fundamental problem, that of forgetting. In a group meeting we work to remember, listening closely to other members and to ourselves. In such a setting one is privileged to hear others strive to speak sincerely, and to experience influences from deeper within one's own nature.
