Hi, so the site we are visiting this year is indeed Bophal.  
Would be nice to hear about your preferred readings or preparations. I hope it is not an overstudied case. 
 
I agree absolutely on what you are saying, that ' it works best if these ‘reflections’ take concrete form'. I think that this is also a form of storytelling that turns something complex and intangible into something that makes sense and can be communicated. This way, like a story, the recipient can contribute to modify and shape its meaning.
