Hello all - I've got a question about affinity groups and balancing theory/ideology/action with self-development which I guess combined help formulate praxis.
Unfortunately I struggled with addiction for many years but gained a great deal of insight the different forms of therapy and group environments I experienced which would benefit most, addict or not!
I noticed most open-minded individuals able to overcome initial fears and prepared to perform honest soul-searching while sharing these insights improves emotional flexibility, group cohesion, bonding and trust plus an appreciation of autonomy and anarchism whether aware of it or not!
Self-improvement and intimacy are less exciting than protest and civil disobedience. For many they (for Brits especially!) are also very scary which I believe is why many groups focus more on praxis and action. Intimacy requires honesty, trust, transparency, humility, intelligence, both intelligent and emotional and positivity and mutual respect.
Thoughts please? Thanks, Keith
