Besides being a classic, the three-day seminar is also the most well-honed training format. With success occurring for 50 to 80% of the group within only 48 hours, it allows you to achieve the most pronounced results within the shortest period of time. Fast results and effectiveness make recruitment for this out-of-body experience and lucid-dreaming training format a breeze. Meanwhile, the training sessions themselves are easy and fun to conduct. The three-day seminar is therefore the most recommended training format.
In order to allow personal contact with each attendee, the optimal group size is between 30 and 40 people, though these are by no means upper or lower limits. The best time to hold a three-day seminar is to have Day 1 on Friday from 7pm to 10pm and Days 2 and 3 on Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to 6pm. Depending on the size of the groups and the city itself, you might hold such seminars at least once every four to six weeks.
If need be, the information given to students over 3 days of lessons can be compressed into 2 days. This might be necessary at certain retreat seminars or when working together with other organizations that are unable to provide you with more time for one reason or another.
There is also a more advanced, hybrid version of the three-day seminar that involves full immersion: at the end of the agendas for Days 2 and 3, add in a break and then tack on an hour’s worth of practice of the indirect techniques (Day 2) and direct techniques (Day 3). As a result, all three days of lessons will conclude with real practice, which should be performed with the students lying down and listening to soft background music. The room you’re in should allow for this.
