Just some quick background, Patty Ray Avalon (in addition to her own work) has assisted William Buhlman when he instructs at the Monroe Institute (for several years now). She often credits Buhlman directly and specifically with advancing both her knowledge and experience of out-of-body travel and its mechanics (e.g., she does this in the 2nd video below), so her advice in this article comes with a lot of experience. It is general but very good. https://www.monroeinstitute.org/blog/how-become-more-successful-consciousness-explorer If interested, Avalon's biographical and other information are linked at the end of the TMI article. I did not initially include it here, because I figured that people would read it (if interested) when following the link. I have additionally recently discovered an interview with Patty Ray Avalon where she provides several descriptions of important turning points and developments in her physical life. It includes history of her introduction to TMI and Buhlman. http://tinyurl.com/hrdcd6j Finally, while Patty may take on many roles at TMI, both she and Buhlman are listed as "guest trainers" on the TMI web site.
