Since participating as a branch of the School of Out-of-Body Travel serves as a kind of seal of quality in its own right and does not involve dues or any other financial obligations, several strict requirements are put forward:
– the instructor should be able to deliberately enter out-of-body experience at least twice a week (spontaneous experiences and becoming conscious while dreaming do not count)
– the instructor should remain neutral regarding theories on the nature of out-of-body experience when teaching
– the instructor should follow the instructions developed by the School when teaching
– conformity of terminology
If a person meets these requirements and can prove it, then nothing will stop him from opening his own branch of the School. Applications to open a branch office are to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
