I think there's lots of ways to handle it, too - I think systems in which you start as friendly peers, and then the class starts, and you shift to teacher-student can work - just that everyone's got to agree on what the change points are.
Another important issue of this was that I had the impression the experienced members in the group didn't really know if they wanted to be teachers or peers generally. I knew it wouldn't be a formal training, but I thought I could cope better with it, just kind of learn something here and there when they find time to show me.

Now I know that if I ever go into another 'experienced' group I will ask straight away what they will teach me, because I need some structure and concept so I have a perspective on my share. It sounds a bit egoistic, but I'd rather have a transparent agreement on what everyone is supposed to do and get out of the group work than trying to help where I can't and being thaught stuff randomly.

Main problem was they were just a neowiccan practicing group and haven't trained anyone yet so they didn't have any idea how to treat students. I'm not sure they even wanted me as a student, I think they really just wanted a fellow practitioneer and took me as a surrogate. I was invited by them though and have made quite clear that I have no experiences so I think there was just a lot of unclearity involved about group work with a newbie being a lot different from group work just with similar experienced peers in the first place.
