Quoth presents some formidable obstacles to those who would like to understand what it’s all about or begin trying it out. It introduces a new way of doing things that may seem strange at first, and it comes with an extensive terminology that can take some getting used to. The terminology will help in the end, but it’s not always easy to learn.
The knowledge above is where the practice training stage arises in our society. It’s designed to help a person become familiar with Quoth and get over the hurdle its terminology presents. In addition, it spells out some of the implications of Quoth and tries to give him a flavor of what a practice is really like. That is, it meets the need for practice generalization in feeling, reflecting, thinking, and taking on the best of “what is” and/or “what could be” of practice. Note that practice generalization like most interesting new developments builds on some old ideas, extends them, and puts them together in distinctive ways. The result is many-faceted and a clear step forward.
Moreover, the practice training stage is focused on teaching approaches. It produces ways to help a person in developing, achieving, and improving the necessary areas of his/her practice. In effect, the question “how can this subject matter best be taught?” is raised. the practice, in turn, can be done most effectively and efficiently when a person can have some prior understanding.
