Twelve’s Adult Study Groups, open to all, are informal, fun, yet challenging. They are distinguished by teaching methods effective for advanced adult learners — collaborative problem solving, where issues of belief and practice are given deep attention. This is a unique teaching method well suited to our Westchester/Fairfield area, with its high concentration of well-educated adults. This creative and critical approach de-emphasizes memorization of data-points or an unreflective acceptance of tradition.
