Malay New Age Group

On our seven hour drive back from Penang to Kuala Lumpur Sunday eve, we took turns telling about our lives. One thing Lai Mun talked about was how rewarding her experience had been with a group she belongs to,

She's a fifty-three year old telecommunications worker who received a degree and lived seven years in New Zealand. She described what the group she's in does together as consciousness raising, life changing. There's not one guru. I don't know the name. Maybe it's a method like Co-counseling or Non-violent Communication or NLP. She said they work on freeing themselves from their image of who they are, concern about what others think, enslavement to conformity. She said they sometimes do things to subject themselves to public ridicule. For instance, once they dressed in pampers (Surely over their clothes) and went to eat at a McDonald's. She's looking forward to the next meeting.
