A.3. The One-Point Program of the RC Community

There is only one program of the RC Community that is binding on all Community members. It is to use RC to seek access to one’s occluded[7] intelligence and innate humanness and assist others to do the same.

All other activities undertaken by the Community are in support of this program. No agreement is required of Community members[8] beyond consistency with this program and support of the Guidelines. The Guidelines describe how to implement the one-point program. (See Guideline L. Use of the Guidelines.)


We are committed to making RC theory and practice available to all people. We require agreement only on this one-point program. This approach makes it possible to offer RC to the largest and most diverse group of people and to continue to preserve our unity. Agreement on this one-point program is a minimum requirement for our working together.

The Guidelines describe the practices developed over time for building the RC Community based on the one-point program. Many Co-Counselors choose to add for themselves other programs to this basic program of individual re-emergence[9]. These include liberation[10] from oppressions[11] and programs that involve taking responsibility, taking charge, and taking initiative. This is by their choice.

[10] Liberation is the program and process of freeing oneself and one’s group from oppression.
