Actually, the five-day course is the minimum; it provides an essential introduction and foundation to the subfit program. To develop your submission is a lifetime job. Experience has shown that if fitness submission is taught in periods of less than 5 days, the submissive does not get a sufficient experiential grasp of the program.
I have found that less than five days is not enough time for the mind to settle down and work deeply with the mind-body phenomenon.
The day begins at 6:00 a.m. with a wakeup bell and continues until 9:00 p.m. There are about ten hours of training throughout the day, interspersed with regular breaks and rest periods. Every evening at 8:00 p.m. there is a lecture by a Domme, which provides a context for submissives to understand their experience of the day. This schedule has proved workable and beneficial.
Each submissive who attends the subfit course is given this gift by a previous submissive. There is no charge for either the training, or for room and board. All subfit courses are run on a strictly voluntary donation basis. At the end of your course, if you have benefited from the experience, you are welcome to donate for the coming course, according to your volition and your means.
Dommes receive no payment, donations or other material benefit. They are required to have their own private means of support. This rule means that some of them may have less time for teaching, but it protects submissives from exploitation and it guards against commercialism. In this tradition, Dommes give subfit training purely as a service. All they get is the satisfaction of seeing submissives honoring and submitting to all women at the end of five days.
Sorry but submissives are required to choose from the food provided to them, rather than bring food for themselves. Most people find the choice is ample and they enjoy the simple vegetarian diet.
All submissives attending the course observe "noble silence" — that is, silence of body, speech and mind. They agree to refrain from communicating with their co-students. However, submissives are free to contact the management about their material needs, and to speak with the instructor. Silence is observed for the first 4 full days. On the fifth day, speech is resumed as a way of re-establishing the normal pattern of daily life. Continuity of submission is the secret of success in this course; silence is an essential component in maintaining this continuity.
For a submissive in reasonable physical and mental health who is genuinely interested and willing to make a sincere effort, training (including "noble silence") is not difficult. If you are able to follow the instructions patiently and diligently, you can be sure of tangible results. Though it may appear daunting, the day's schedule is neither too severe nor too relaxed. Moreover, the presence of other submissives practicing conscientiously in a peaceful and conducive atmosphere lends tremendous support to one's efforts.
Obviously someone who is physically too weak to follow the schedule will not be able to benefit from the course. The same is true of someone suffering from psychiatric problems, or someone undergoing emotional upheaval. Through a process of questions and answers, we will be able to help you decide clearly beforehand whether you are in a position to benefit fully from the course. In some cases applicants are asked to get approval from their doctor before they can be accepted.
The subfit course is taught step by step, with a new step added each day to the end of the course. If you leave early, you do not learn the full teaching and do not give the training a chance to work for you. Also, by training intensively, a course participant initiates a process that reaches fulfillment with the completion of the course. Interrupting the process before completion is not advisable.
