Since its introduction, over 1,400 VDT® kits have been sold through Second Wind Dreams®, which donates a significant portion of the proceeds to the organization's dreams for elders program. An estimated 22,000 experiential tours have been conducted by facilitators throughout the U.S. and in 14 countries. As of December 2012, more than 500,000 people have experienced a VDT®.
At the Consortium, a select group of Certified Trainers will go through rigorous instruction and training overseen by founder, P.K. Beville. The reputation of Second Wind Dreams®, owner of the rights to the VDT® series, is strong and the studies and research that support the rationale and exacting methodology of the VDT®, make the new Community Edition a sought after tool for anyone in a position of education to better understand the disease.
