Group Conscience: Wednesday, 4th May 2022

Agenda


1. Motion: To insert the cross talk statement into the script before the share time to read:

Our goal is to listen and hear each other, not "cross-talk" or make suggestions.
This specifically means:
- not speaking/chatting during shares
- not speaking directly to or about someone else's share during your own share
- we refrain from private chat during someone's share, unless asked to be spiritual greeter or timekeeper

We try to focus on recovery experience rather than the problem. In turn, we share, using "I" statements from our own experiences about our journey as we recover from gaming addiction.

2. Motion: To add another 10 minutes to the meeting time to give people enough time to share.
