Here is a list of materials and structural/organizational components you will need in order to achieve successful lab results. In addition to the structure you will also need to become versed in the Nexus Lab Rules.
TEN TO ONE
Nexus Labs are (most ideally) made up of a group of 10 persons seated together in a circle. The number ten is a symbol of the completion of a cycle and we adhere to that concept in Nexus Science. however, any number of people greater than one can participate depending upon the size of the group. Although ten is optimal, if you have a large group but not even numbers (say 16 people) then split the group in two (eight and eight).
Sit in a circle facing each other. Arrange your chairs so that participants will be compelled to sit closely together (as close as possible) where they can make good eye-contact and hear each other well. Discourage participants from (their often instinctive) compulsion to move chairs or lean back away from the inner portion of the circle.
Elect a moderator. A moderator simply ensures that the Nexus Lab Rules are understood and adhered to throughout the workshop. They have no hierarchical position within the discussion other than they are usually careful and courteous people who can offer the occasional gentle reminder when participants might stray from the rules.
Take notes (optional). Taking notes of the discussion is optional and can be done either by the moderator or an additional “secretary” within the lab. Note taking is particularly beneficial when there is a desired result or outcome from the Nexus Lab and you want to record everyone’s feeling and opinion. Also, if you want or have been asked by the Nexus Science Practitioner to share your results with the rest of the group circles.
