NAME: Body-Room Contact.
COMMANDS: "Touch your (body part). " "Thank you. " "Touch that (indicated room object). " "Thank you. "
POSITION: Auditor and preclear move about together as needed, the auditor enforcing the commands by manual contact using the preclear's hands to touch objects and touch body parts.
PURPOSE: To establish the orientation and increase the havingness of the preclear and to give him in particular a reality on his own body.
TRAINING STRESS: Training stress is upon using only those body parts which are not embarrassing to the preclear as it will be found that preclear ordinarily has very little reality on various parts of his body. Impossible commands should not be given to the preclear in any case.
