I share the feelings expressed by Tonka444 [at] aol.com about "sharing" intensely personal feelings--which are usually very heavy--no one seems to have intensely personal happy light feelings it seems--at least they don't share them in group exercises. Living is not therapy. Caring is not therapy. Life is not therapy. Therapy is retreat from living in order to clear up non-living and it needs to be done in carefully controlled, time and space limited situations, and guided by experienced well-trained professionals. I also am uncomfortable with exercises that ask one to describe themselves as a tree or a flower. I'm not a tree or a flower and have no interest in being one. The thing I was attracted to in cohousing is that it seems so sensible and practical and real. These stories concern me.
