Moving our programs online due to Covid-19 safety concerns has resulted in a great opportunity for those who have always wanted to attend the Teachers’ Conference but were unable to travel to Seattle. The 3rd Annual OSF Teachers’ Conference in September 2020 was a success! While we hope to be able to gather in person next year, the online format particularly suited the conference, and we will continue to use online tools for certified OSF teachers to gather in the future.
All certified OSF & SRT teachers are invited to our annual OSF Teachers’ Conference, which includes the OSF Advanced Practice Workshop each morning.
Three-hour morning Advanced Practice sessions are facilitated by Stephanie Skura and OSF Teacher Trainers.
Advanced OSF material is deeply rooted in and fluidly expanded from advanced Skinner Releasing practice. Though twelve codified ‘Ongoing’ SRT classes are sometimes taught, Stephanie creates unique advanced sessions, culled from a wealth of material passed on by SRT creator Joan Skinner & early practitioners, and integrated with Skura’s evolving improvisational research. This level of the practice is sophisticated, deep, evolved in alignment approaches — richly navigating states below conscious level.
Afternoons include refresher sessions (questions that have arisen about teaching, things that are perhaps blurry in our understanding), time to share our research, experiments or performances, address topics of interest, catch up on recent updates, and delve deeper into OSF concepts we are curious to explore.
Next Teachers’ Conference dates TBD.
