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
<> 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
<> 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 <>.

Good luck to your group!
