Students: Strongly recommended by the author to begin opening to "practice management awareness with meditative thinking and questioning" during the cycle you are most open to absorbing, learning, and developing good habits. Avoid the ignorance that begets struggling and unconscious incompetence which can ruin the practice.

New Practitioners: If you didn't get the P.M. Plan Format in school with Vol. 1 & 4, this set is the focusing tool to get practices up and running consciously, quickly, with clear intention, awareness and action! Avoid costly mistakes in the beginning.

Established Practitioners: Use to move to the next level of your practice! Along with the background of Vol. 1 & 4, the P.M .Plan Format takes the approach of inquiring into the self, helps you personally assess your practice, and work with your changing energies and the energies of the practice, add or subtract what's needed for the cycle or seaons of practice--Winter, Spring, Summer, Indian Summer, or Autumn.

Practice Management Instructors: Recommended as fill-in weekly assignments leading to the completion of an outstanding term project: "The Practice Management Plan." Use to supplement reading, particularly Vol. 1 & 4, and Risk Management. The fill-in format reveals honesty and competency levels, as well as can be used to stimulate class room discussion. Meets ACAOM accreditation competency requirements
