Had my usual good time, last night, talking to the current Guidelines class at The Monroe Institute. Since the program begins Saturday after supper, by Wednesday night the participants have a pretty good idea of the obstacles they have faced and those they still face, and everybody is in the mood to do some work to see what we can do to help them address them.
When you have a dozen and a half people united in common purpose, bonded by a few days of sharing meals and conversation, you have a temporary group mind of some power. And what I like best about being at TMI is, as I have said many times, it is like being in the future. You can talk about shared understandings that just don’t commonly exist in the outside world.
So now I wait till tomorrow, when I start teaching my first weekend class there. Thank God for Bob Holbrook, who will be there to catch!
