Wolff maintained an extensive property in the eastern foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains where students could spend time or live. For many decades he gave a talk to the students or visitors every Sunday morning, combined with listening to some classical music and performing a few simple rituals. He encouraged study groups to form in other places, also. And he valued physical work for the students the most notable project of which was the construction of a stone ashrama in a remote canyon over many years.
His granddaughter, Doroethy Leonard, said that she remembers her family spending summer vacations at the ashrama project when she was a child, along with upwards of forty other students, as wonderful times.
In his postscript to On Having No Head, Harding wrote: "For the majority of us caught up in this most daring and exacting of adventures, the company of fellow-adventurers is indispensable. Accordingly it would be unrealistic worse: irresponsible and uncaring if we were to encourage people to take the message of this book to heart, yet fail to follow it up with all the continued support that the nature of this enterprise allows." Yet he saw the inherent problems of any organization. "For a spiritual movement that's as alive and distinctive as most others, the Headless Way is remarkably lacking in organization. It resembles the people who take it up in that it, too, is without a head in the sense that it has no presiding authority, no governing counsel or headquarters...." He encouraged instead a network of loving friends "loose, scattered, altogether informal."
Rose shared the view that I'm sure the other two men also had that there is nothing more important than the "Grand Work" of Recognition, seeing who we really are, or self-definition. And he also shared their view on the drawbacks of any organization. He expressed his ideal of people working together as a circle with no head.
He also had strong convictions about what he referred to as the Law of the Ladder, which was that we should only be working with those on our own rung and those one rung above or below us. He felt that our progress depends more on being pushed up the ladder by those below us than on pulling ourselves up to the next level, and accordingly each of us should be finding half a dozen people on the rung below us to be helping.
