How long or short a time frame do I need for a good, effective guided imagery session?
The truth is, all most people need is about 15-20 minutes for getting maximum benefit or close to it. For some it’s even less – maybe 10 minutes is all they need, because they can very speedily enter a deep, receptive trance state.
Of course, people who have trouble relaxing into this immersive, altered state probably can use the full 25-30 minutes, but that’s the minority. And even if they don’t start out accessing this state quickly or easily, over time, with practice, they get better and better at it, and then they require less and less time.
