1. Traditionally, auditing is sold in 12 1/2 hour blocks. Each of these blocks is called an intensive.
When you address an issue with auditing, you address it vigorously within a short period of time so as to make a real dent in the area you are auditing.
Here’s an example of how this might work. Jorge has had several failed relationships and doesn’t know why they fail, but he is miserable in this area of life. Jorge wants to improve his life by being able to find a companion to share his life with. The auditor, in conjunction with the case supervisor, estimates Jorge will need about 37.5 hours of auditing aka 3 intensives, to tackle this area and make a notable improvement.
The auditor and Jorge need to find a compatible schedule to get this program done in a concentrated way. In this case, Jorge is able to take a week off of work, plus he’s able to come in over the weekend. So Jorge and his auditor schedule to audit every day from 9 am to 3pm, with a break for lunch. They are hoping to get 4-6 hours of actual session time each day. This means they could get through Jorge’s auditing program in about a week.
If Jorge couldn’t take off work, they might schedule to work together on weekends and a few nights during the week to get this program done and achieve some good results for Jorge. In that case, it might take about 3 weeks to complete the auditing program.
The idea of the auditing program is to get to the root of Jorge’s relationship difficulties and handle the heck out of them as quickly as possible.
The more time that passes between sessions the more opportunity life has to interfere with progress. If the auditor and preclear can go at it intensively, they have a better chance for the auditing to make more progress than life can take away. Maximum progress with minimal opportunity for life interference is the reason for intensive auditing.
It’s important to work with a person’s schedule as it is in life, but you also don’t want to waste the preclear’s time and money by dragging their auditing out over too long a time. It’s not unusual for a person to dedicate a few weeks of time in order to get through an auditing program expeditiously.
You wouldn’t expect results if you only worked out once a week or only practiced a foreign language for an hour a week. It’s the same with auditing. You aren’t likely to unravel a years’ long problem by addressing it an hour a week. Results will be much more effective if auditing is done intensively.« Back to All Definitions
