  5. Plan a Movie Night: As a Group, pick a movie to watch and set a date to watch it together. Plan the event. Either rent the movie, or go to see it in a movie theater. While the Group is watching the movie, each person focuses on trying to spot which Spiral Dynamics vMeme colors are being portrayed in various scenes. If the group decides to watch a video, consider stopping the video from time to time and discussing the various scenes in terms of their vMeme color expression. Make notes of what triggered the spotting of these vMeme colors during the movie.
  6. Additional Reflection (optional): Go round the group and have each person respond with:

             “Based on the materials we've gone through for this Segment, I'd like us to spend some more time considering......”

              Choose a focus to which there’s some general agreement and then spend as much time discussing it as is needed. See that everyone has a chance to provide input and be heard. Record points to remember on the flip chart as appropriate.

  7. Logistics and Housekeeping :
  8. Other Business: At this point, if the group has any additional matters that it feels should to be addressed then address them now.

  9. Closing (Check Out): Request a round robin response from each person to these suggested (example) statements:
