Because the quality of the program depends a lot on the quality of the class container, we are seeking students who are dedicated to co-maintaining a safe and rich classroom container, who aspire to resolve conflicts in a proactive and healthy way, and who understand that their individual actions affect the class as a whole. We want students who are both punctual and internally engaged in both the bodywork and relational portions of the program, which may involve being with feelings that may not be pleasant or comfortable sometimes. Please comment on this with as many words as needed.
