Men’s D3 Group Guidelines
CHECK-IN TIME (10 Minutes)
The first 10 minutes of our D3 Group session is check-in time. That’ll give you an opportunity to practice honesty and accountability while meeting with a few of your peers in recovery in a small Zoom breakout room. These are private, confidential conversations guys have where it’s safe to confess any sexual struggles or slips suffered from the previous week. We celebrate successes here, too.
DAILY DISCIPLINE DISCUSSION PREVIEW (10 Minutes)
After our check-in time, we meet briefly as a large group where Michael gives us a brief summary of the main take-aways and an overview of the three questions from that week’s Daily Discipline. Each group member is responsible for watching the assigned Daily Discipline’s video lesson and reviewing the questions from our worksheet on their own time prior to our weekly meeting.
SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION (30 Minutes)
Then it’s off once again to your small group (2-4 men) to discuss your thoughts on the content from the video and the three reflective questions posed in the Daily Disciplines™ worksheet. This is where the real magic happens – where like-hearted, like-minded men connect to form authentic relationships.
BIG GROUP FINAL THOUGHTS (10 Minutes)
After everyone returns to the big group from their small breakout room discussions, we’ll gather one final time as a large group to share interesting insights or final thoughts. Occasionally, Michael sticks around for an extra 10-15 minutes for “the meeting after the meeting” where anyone who wants can hang out and kick around some thoughts and ideas on what we learned.
WE VALUE KINDNESS & COMPASSION
Many of our group members (and maybe you, too) will be going through difficult trials and challenges during our time together. Let’s practice kindness and compassion whenever possible.
WE VALUE GRACE & MERCY
Balancing work, life, family, and recovery is tricky. We acknowledge that our goal is progress, not perfection, so we will meet your mess with grace and mercy, and without judgment or condemnation.
WE VALUE DEPTH & AUTHENTICITY
During this group, we’ll share pieces of ourselves we rarely share with others. We value relational depth and authenticity, and we try to shed shallowness and masks whenever possible.
Each participant must turn their video on for the entire meeting. This allows everyone to feel safer while in small group discussions. Please find a quiet and private place before joining the meeting.
BE ON TIME
Being on time is just being respectful of others and guarantees everyone will be able to get the most out of our time together.
Respect others’ privacy by holding our space sacred and keeping what individuals and the group shares as private and confidential.
Each week you’ll be expected to watch one short video from the Daily Disciplines™ for Sexual Integrity. Be prepared to discuss what you learned from the video and willing to ask questions when you need clarification.
