The method of Socratic dialogue has been known for its regressive abstraction sinceNelson and Heckmann. This method raises awareness on the implicit assumptions and ideas behindthe interpretation of human experiences. My recent Socratic Dialogue Groups (SDG) with peoplerecovering from cancer revealed additional perspectives on philosophical reflection. The dialogues among the participants brought out an ontological exigency within reflection that moved beyondpurely epistemological thinking. The objective of this article is twofold: First to elucidate the act ofreflecting philosophically within my SDGs and secondly to accent the ontological dimension ofreflection. My analysis of the process of reflection will draw on Marcel's philosophical reflection andnotion of being.
