Reflection to a group - the day after the earth moved = Group Work.

This is a letter I have created ……..
......... to special people. 

Dear name 
Thanx for your giving to the group last night. 
I am aware that it was a bit like having a real 
vivid honest discussion on a moving staircase. 
So I appreciate your efforts all the more. 

There was fantastic sharing going on – 
even amongst the walking in and out of other people. 
The reason why I encourage this sort of sharing 
is to touch real feelings and 
when we do that we are more accepting of the reality – 
the real depth of our feelings. 
I believe that, 
if we are honest with these feelings, 
we can move on from that base of honesty 
to a better life. 

All of us have gone through stuff in our lives 
which have left scars. 
What I am aiming for is to help the group 
to create a good vibe which then, 
the group itself, 
becomes a helping environment. 
It only works if people are honest 
and you were last night. 

So ……
……… I write with appreciation 
and an encouragement to press on. 

We can be like an octopus 
which squirts out a cloud to cover up 
the fears and threats, 
wanting to 'cloud out' from view 
the real threats. 

Last night you faced the real 
and that makes us stronger 
as individuals and 
as a group ……. 
It seems to me.
