A Special Approach To Forming The Groups

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How many teachers should there be in an integral study group? Who should they be: men or women?

Answer: There should be at least two or three teachers in an integral study group. They can be both men and women, depending on the group. We should take into account the mentality of the people in the group, their social status, the level of equality in the society they live in, and how they accept this fact. They can claim that in their society everyone is equal, but it may actually not be so.

In Russia, Europe, or America the mentality is totally different, and people have different opinions regarding this question, although it also depends on the social class you are working with. So everything should be taken into account. It may very well be that in certain groups the teachers should be only men and not a man and a woman.

Possibly, an instructor who is employing different games and examples should simultaneously undergo training in education and upbringing, as it is usually done in psychology and psychiatry.

It depends on a case-by-case basis, and it can be so specific that the right people need to be picked for every group. You may purposefully go to a certain business or neighborhood, to public places, clubs, and so on, let a great number of people “pass through you,” and thus form the groups.

You have to create some “inspection body,” meaning experts who would quickly identify different types of people, classify them, and place them into groups. It is a very special occupation.
