DaBen's transmissions: the seminar begins with your registration!
Once you enroll DaBen will immediately begin transmitting to you to prepare you for the energies you will be exploring at the seminar. He asks for beings of light to join him in working with you. DaBen transmits whatever energy is next for you during each meditation. You will have much inner assistance from DaBen and many highly evolved beings of light at the seminar and during the time leading up to it. Because these seminars present energies that are at the leading edge of human consciousness, you will have much support for many months after the seminar as well whenever you play with these spaces.

I recently graduated from the light body course, will I understand what DaBen is teaching? (Yes!)
The answer is Yes! You can have wonderful, expansive, and breakthrough experiences at all levels of study as you get into the energy spaces DaBen is transmitting. Success with DaBen's meditations is not about keeping up with the group or getting the same thing as everybody else is getting, (because everyone will have a completely unique experience as well). It is about opening to the individual opportunities that are the right ones for you. Each light body meditation can bring you incredible experiences and life-changing realizations. You will experience exactly what you need to shift into higher consciousness in whatever way is perfect for you. You can experience states of consciousness that are peaceful, flowing, expansive, mystical, and deeply transformative as you participate in DaBen's seminar journeys. Each DaBen meditation offers you an opportunity to experience unique, memorable, and insightful experiences that will expand your consciousness.

During each journey DaBen transmits to you
whatever energies are next for you.

We have people at all levels of skill with their light body participating in these courses. The energies at a seminar, whether you come in person or participate remotely, online are very high. Everyone lifts into higher spaces as DaBen transmits the new energies, amplified by the large number of people focused on receiving and expanding into these energies in a fairly close time-frame, all who are among the first to open to these new spaces. Your guide and many highly evolved beings will be present to assist you. We have had many recent light body graduates, those who have not yet taken many graduate courses, and those who are just picking up the light body after a significant break, report to us that they had wonderful experiences at the seminar during the DaBen meditations and were able to lift higher than ever before.

At the seminar - what is the seminar like?
The seminar begins with registration from 8:30 - 8:55 AM Friday morning for the seminars that run Friday through Sunday. Please pay in full prior to the seminar to save time registering if you are coming in person.  If you are attending the Monday - Wednesday seminar in addition to the Friday through Sunday seminar, you will register for both Friday morning. If you are taking the Monday - Wednesday seminar and not the preceding seminar, you will register Monday afternoon at 3:00PM for a class that starts at 3:30 Monday and ends at 5:30 Monday and runs through Wednesday, ending at 5:00 on Wednesday.

You can either pay in full online, or complete your registration Friday morning during the seminar registration time. You will then fill out your name tag, and take a seat. Duane is very prompt, and will start the seminar with a welcome. Next you will settle into a light body journey with DaBen where you can experience wonderful feelings of flow and peace as you explore the first steps of the new light body skills you will be learning. Most people find that DaBen's meditations can be experienced in a deeper, more profound way in a group setting, either in person or remotely, online. Throughout the seminar you will be led on a number of 15-30 minute guided meditations, preceded or followed by Duane talks, times to share with others if you choose, and breaks where we provide trail mix, water, and many tea choices.
Go here for seminar times including break times and daily starting and ending times. 

Meet and talk to Duane and Sanaya
Duane is present during most breaks, so you can ask questions, hear other people's questions, and share your experiences. Sanaya is available throughout the seminar to talk to as well.

Be among the first to experience these energies - an incredible opportunity
All of you who enroll in the live seminars are the first to open up these energies for yourself and for humanity. The seminars teach DaBen's latest work and are always about bringing through energies that are new to the earth plane. No matter when you listen to DaBen's guided meditations you will always be in the first group, the pioneers of opening this energy. You are at the edges of human consciousness as you explore these energies, playing with new energies and patterns of light and consciousness that have not previously existed on the earth plane.

By being among the first to experience these energies you will make an impact on these energies and how they will be released to humanity. As part of the original group opening these energies, you help set how these energies will develop, including what the range of the energy will initially be and the flavor that these energies will take on as they move out into human consciousness.

Because of your role of being among the first to open to this consciousness, you will receive much extra support by DaBen and many beings of light. DaBen's transmissions are different for the people who learn this consciousness after the initial opening; then the energies are more set up, easier to find, and more stable. Those who follow later will be helping to solidify the development of the consciousness that supports the energy spaces being taught. DaBen's transmissions to you who are among the first to seed these energies for humanity are more intense and include great opportunities for you to move into much higher consciousness, made possible by your help in opening this energy for humanity.

As you use these energies and work with them, you become a transmitter of these energies to others. Because you are pioneering these energies and will be holding the space for these energies to become available to others in the future, the guides will offer you much individual attention and transmissions on the inner planes from the time you register, and during and after the seminar.

General Information if this is your first time attending a seminar in person
What are the other students like? At the seminar, there is a wide range of skill and experience with the light body. A number of people are coming for the first time, and others have attended many light body seminars. Some people have just graduated from the basic six-volume Awakening Your Light Body course, others have taken a few graduate light body courses, and some are picking up the light body after a significant break. Everyone we hear from has told us that they have had wonderful experiences at the seminar during the DaBen meditations.

People at the seminar are very friendly. They come from all over the world, representing a variety of professions. Some people are very fluent in English, others are not, some speak no English at all but find that they can participate in the energy that DaBen transmits.  People have formed lasting friendships at the seminars. Many people come by themselves for the first time, and feel welcomed by the people they interact with. Most people say that they have a wonderful time, and that the seminars are a lot of fun as well as allowing them to have many breakthroughs at a spiritual level. 

We welcome first-time seminar participants and are happy to have you come. During the first lunch break you will have an opportunity to meet with and introduce yourself to others who are new to the seminars, in a meeting with Sanaya.There will be plenty of opportunity to interact with others during the seminar, if you choose.

DaBen also offers special seminar meditations where advanced material is taught Sunday afternoon and Mondays to people who have attended a number of our seminars over the years, called the Seed and Discovery Group.

For your comfort: There are padded hotel chairs to sit in. You are free to leave the room at any time, however you will need to leave quietly if a meditation is in progress, and wait to return until after the meditation is over. There will be plenty of bathroom breaks.  We do not have space in the ballroom for yoga mats or lying on the floor.

What clothes should I wear? What is the weather like? 
April and late October are the most variable months of the year in the Medford area.  It can be hot or cold (we have had heat waves in April and October, as well as snow), so you might want to wear comfortable clothes that you can add to if you are cold or take off layers if you are hot. Check the weather right before you come, as it can go from summer one week to winter-like weather the next week. Most people dress informally, and all types of clothing are worn. Wear whatever clothes you feel comfortable in.

We recommend you check the weather online before coming for an idea of what to expect.  For information on weather, before you come, check out weather or a second site, accuweather. The zip code for Medford is 97501.  

Do I need a car? (It is not necessary)
You can arrange transportation from the airport to your hotel by either contacting Rogue Regency Inn if you are staying there, or your hotel or a shuttle service. Rogue Regency offers a free shuttle service if you are staying at their hotel to any place in Medford; they will take you there and pick you up afterward if they have a driver available. There are restaurants and a shopping mall within walking distance of the Rogue Regency Inn where the seminar is being held.  Go here for seminar hotel, shuttle, and airline information. If you have a car, Ashland is nearby with the Shakespeare festival and nightly performances.

Can I pick up products at the seminar, or buy products at the seminar? 
If you want to pick up products at the seminar, you can order online and have them shipped to your hotel room. You can call the hotel and ask them to hold your order for you until you arrive. We do not have any products available for sale at the seminar.

After the seminar
You will continue to receive DaBen's support, as well as the support of the beings of light you worked with during the seminar, to continue the shift that you started during the seminar. All DaBen meditations and talks will be posted online by Sunday evening for the Friday-Sunday seminar for you to stream or download. We intend to have the audio meditations from the Monday -Wednesday seminar posted by Thursday morning the following day.

Transcripts of DaBen's meditations and talks will be available during the seminar as they are typed and posted. About 12-14 weeks after the seminar ends, and sometimes much sooner, we will repost the seminar, with all the talks and meditations digitally edited, (coughs removed, etc.). At that time a zip file will be available of the entire seminar, that will also include a PDF of the transcripts with notes of what music used during each journey.
