An online practitioners group, including online teachings and discussion, supplemented by one-on-one email correspondence with a CSS teacher, is available for Center members who have completed the CSS Foundation Studies Course, completed at least one year of the CSS Practitioners Group (or its equivalent in the Bishop or Anacortes groups), attended a CSS fall retreat, or completed phase III of the CSS Distance Studies Course. If you satisfy at least one of these prerequisites and you are a current CSS member (or are willing to renew your membership), then you are eligible to join the online group.
In the 2017-2018 year CSS teacher Matt Sieradski will be leading the online group with monthly audio conference call meetings, recorded video lectures, and group blog discussion. Required participation entails watching or listening to lectures, attending the conference sessions (dates/times to be chosen as a group), and making one blog entry and one blog comment per month.
The online practitioners group will follow the original teachings in his face-to-face groups. For details, see the current practitioners group descriptions. Class will be based around monthly lectures that will be recorded. Interim classes will entail group discussion and practice-oriented suggestions.
