A group of usually no more than 8-10 would gather in a circle. The Host will have already have chosen a text which is read aloud to the whole group.
There follows a time of reflection, on the words, the context and the author. The whole group is encouraged to share their thoughts although they do not have to.
Often the piece is read for a second time allowing for more thought. The groups usually last for one to one and half hours.
A number of poems or pieces may be considered in that time. (off the website FAQ)
This is a Free activity, although a gold coin donation would be appreciated to cover the cost of tea/coffee.
