This sequence goes from verbose gratitude expression to its formless expression via the spontaneous thanks intermediary step.
Some people like to mark the shifts between these phases with a bell, while others like to invite participants to take their cue from the facilitator on when to shift between phases.
When facilitating this practice virtually, it's recommended that you organize people in small groups of 3-5–at least for the first phase, while the order is sequential. It's ideal if you can configure the break-outs so that everyone comes back from the first phase automatically after a set period of time. Otherwise, it's probably best to do the whole sequence in the small groups.
