As I reflect upon my experiences, as a group facilitator, I believe participating in an Ijinle will be one of the most important steps you take in your life. Your group has the potential to help you develop in so many wonderful ways. In a world where you're constantly threatened by personal and social difficulties, your Ijinle can prevent you from becoming overwhelmed. Ijinle provides a powerful link between your spiritual values, your highest aspirations and the people you are destined to serve. It can enable you to stay grounded and build stronger relationships at home, at work, in the community and with the ancestors.
I have been invited to facilitate groups in Tallahassee, Nova Scotia, King of Prussia, Des Moines and Corpus Cristi. The outcome has been consistent: What is most personal is most universal. Groups create unique opportunities for individuals to connect to their deepest values and recognize the reality of our shared struggles, as human beings. Ijinle in an invitation to see yourself in others. It is an opportunity to allow another person's life teach you the way forward in your own life. By learning to transcend the false boundaries that divide you from other people, the Ijinle helps you to overcome isolation, loneliness and the maladies that accompany those conditions, including alcoholism, addiction and consumerism.
