A.2. The Nature of Relationships in the RC Community

All members of the RC Community are peers. Nobody is more valuable than anyone else. We seek to value and respect each other’s essential humanness, without reservation. We discharge to free ourselves from old hurts that interfere with this goal.


Our commitment to peer relationships follows from our theory and is also of great importance practically.

An individual may fill a particular role in the Community because, at that time, that individual

  1. can think more clearly and functions more intelligently in a particular area,
  2. communicates more effectively, and/or
  3. has more Co-Counseling knowledge and experience.

None of this changes the fact that we are peers.

People play particular roles only because of ability and acceptance of responsibility, not because of position, title, or prestige. We reject and oppose any patterns of hierarchy, professionalism, or leaders-versus-followers in our Community.
