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
