I initially started this thread in order to connect with other un-grouped individuals that were available at a time I was available to meet. That group is now up and running, but I realized that more people might still be looking for a way to connect with and form new groups. I am cutting and pasting my initial post as a reply below as a model for anyone looking to create a group in a similar way, but I am removing it from the top of the thread, so people reading understand that this forum can be used generally to connect with groups and not only with the specific group formed from my first post. (Nothing from the original post has been deleted, but it has been relocated below.)
I hope everyone looking for a group is able to connect and to help in the work of learning and holding each other (and ourselves) accountable in this process. People can still reach out to me for assistance, and I will help as I am able, but I do also want to note that some emails to me have initially gone to junk, so reply to me here if I don't reply to an email you sent me and I will try to connect with you!
