Hi Irmgard Would you like to be in a study circle together? I a m not entirely clear abt the distinction between the team or set and the circle. But Yish says the circle is wider. Have also heard from Ilene Dawn about being in a circle george

Hi George

I keep getting lost in all these various postings - I think circle is wide enough to include everything :)

But I'm not quite sure what the implications are ... please keep me posted when you find out more.  There's another person from Brookes now who I am in touch with: Jeff Waistell (business). Feels all a bit like up in the clouds - literally. Irmgard

Dear old friends,

Hope that you both had a nice break. Nice meeting you here :-)

It is interesting to observe and experience this course.  I guess that a number of people got lost in this rather complex, massive and multiple-channel environment.

My understanding:

  • Team: 2-3 participants to talk about a specific topic
  • A study circle: consists of 2-3 teams whose topics are related

I would like to join you and keep the conversation going if you like.

All the best

Hello Fawei, old friend!

Sorry I didn't answer - I got completely lost in the clouds ... got too much to do, as always ;)

How did you get on? Did you get into a study circle?

Would be nice to hear from you!
