We study one chapter at a time on a biweekly basis.  Summaries for the
chapter under discussion (prepared by Dave Hutchinson) are first sent out,
followed by a message on the chapter from a member of the group who has
volunteered to work on the the chapter. This is followed by discussion from
the members.

Group members are encouraged to read the current  chapter before entering
the discussion and to keep in mind that personal spiritual growth is the
primary focus of discussion.

We encourag  a lot of freedom in the contributions within the theme of the
current chapter.  Members may summarise,  paraphrase, share experiences, or
compare other writings of Sri Aurobindo.
