Question: Does it make sense to add new groups interested in integral education to a group that already includes five couples and has gone through a few integral trainings?
Answer: This is a delicate question. When people are in contact with one another, they internally tune to the common harmony. It is just like in a musical instrument where there is a big difference between the sound of each individual string and the common accord.
Therefore, I don’t know whether we can join such groups together. Their development and taste must be the same type. You certainly can try to introduce one couple into a group, and then another couple after some time. However, you should not break a group and mix it among others. Otherwise, people will leave. It will be like a breakage for them.
It is better to form a multitude of small groups and later on, organize a picnic for everyone in completely different conditions. It should not be in the same center, but rather in a park so that people could break all conventions and habits. Then, you will be able to create something new and different. They will feel, within this, very useful, new phenomena and additions, instead of digging into their relationships. A lot of feelings and solutions that were new and unknown until this time will appear in this area.
