Kansei can conduct single training, help the instructor of the group or even have and conduct a group himself.
To become a sohai he has to take part in a seminar for instructors and pass the exam at the end of the seminar successfully. After the seminar, those who have passed the exam receive a Certificate, which allows them to teach Da Dao. They are also given a chevron “SOHAI” which they wear on their chests.
