Even if your activities fall under those of a branch of the School of Out-of-Body Travel, this entails no actual legal or financial relationship between you and the School. Seminar instructors and organizers act independently of the School on all such matters. The School of Out-of-Body Travel is an informal association of entities interested in promoting the topics of out-of-body travel and lucid dreaming in society, as well as teaching methods that truly work. It goes without saying that there are no contracts or monetary exchanges of any kind within the association. Contracts might be signed and money exchanged for certain limited projects, but not as part of the general functioning of the group. This approach allows for the acceleration and simplification of the process of disseminating knowledge. Meanwhile, decentralization makes the system more robust and less vulnerable.
