I purchased Daniels book about 4 months prior to the class starting in December. Pacing was easier when using the book alone, as there was not a class schedule, and concern about missing information if I did not keep up, but I also did not have anyone to ask questions of if I did not understand some of this new material. I would recommend having this book, and having at least read it prior to starting this class. and will be glad to have the book again when class is through.
For me so far, step 4 was the problem step, was the reason that I really wanted the class and a group of people for support, and even then took much longer, just for my strongest lineage, and I think it was a fairly strong lineage also.
I am copying and pasting the lessons, questions, ancillary studies, and the transcripts from the meetings, to have on hand, as the pacing of this class can be to quick for me, especially when everyday life gets busy. Because I did not want to miss the information given by Daniel for each lesson, I have clicked “done” before I am really finished with a lesson, as feel that would understand the next steps better if I do listen, and do the question/answer sessions as they occur. Especially when someone asks a question that I did not know enough even to ask. It was so tempting to start the next step, rather than just gathering the information, processing, and being able to question the process, so when I did get to that step, would be better prepared. But I did postpone step 5 for a while, as needed another week with step 4, and glad I did. I can see why people would wait until they were through with this first class, before deciding to go on, or whether they need to spend more time with this step.
