for the past three years as a  volunteer, i have  facilitated a group i have named: "When Memories Speak" for the association of american university women, mpls chapter. and another group  for the osher lifelong learning institute (university of mn.). over time  i have prepared dozens of index cards on each of which is a statement or question which taps memories .  participants take  turns picking a card  from a group randomly  placed face down . granted that this is not the same as asking the four worded question you suggest ,  it does generate some remarkable stories whiich makes for  surprising connections to one's self and also among the members .i keep the group at fewer than eight . i think having a focus adds comfort and a sense of safety.   i think such groups could be part of  the movement you would like to start  and i would be very happy to see it happen - soon.  i am ninety years of  age. jeanne bearmon
