Second Thought

Looking again at news and commentary

From The New Yorker, April 23, 1990 [From an article about self-help groups] "When these strangers gathered, something happened—some would call it a 'dynamic,' others 'grace'—that allowed them to speak truthfully from the depths of their hearts and also to be receptive to each other's truths, where in other circumstances they could not do either, and in this giving and taking, to begin to heal. What makes this possible and why it is healing remains the mystery and miracle of self-help groups.
