Title based on contents of the item.
A woman introduces the first volume and explains that the cassettes were recorded in April 1978 in Mornington, Victoria, [Australia].
If the cassettes were recorded in 1978, then the jackets and cassettes are mislabeled as being created in 1979.
Cassettes are accompanied by typed jackets that differ. It is possible that these cassettes are from different Retreats, but Jean Vanier gave a similar talk at different retreats.
