Hey Frances, You've already received some good replies. 3 things I want to offer: (1) While I agree with Diana in principle about the systems that need to click into place, it's helpful to have the entry into sociocracy "linearized" - what does one do first, what next, etc.? That's what my latest book Who Decides Who Decides <http://www.sociocracyforall.org/who-decides-who-decides> provides. It's for forming groups, so your group size works perfectly. And then you either grow and use more of the structure, or you don't :) (2) We have a video-led sociocracy training <http://www.sociocracyforall.org/elc> with group exercises that is self-serve so you can schedule as you wish. That's how you can create the shared reality/knowledge base for everyone in the group. (3) I also agree on Sharon's point on mental clarity that's useful no matter what group size. I wrote an article about that, called Everyday Sociocracy <https://www.sociocracyforall.org/everyday-sociocracy/>. Good luck to your group!
