The OSF ANNUAL OPEN WORKSHOP is open to all — those without prior experience in Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT), Open Source Forms (OSF), or traditional dance, as well as more experienced practitioners. This workshop assembles a worldwide community for movement, creative practice & deep immersion, in a catalytic environment of colleagues with diverse experiences in teaching, healing, therapy, performance, theater, visual art, writing, community-building & organization-development.
Deeply rooted in & fluidly expanded from Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT), OSF involves shedding outer layers, accessing primal energy, agility navigating subconscious realms, imagery as potent tool for transformation, & developing a high degree of consciousness without self-consciousness. This work celebrates diversity, collaboration & individual empowerment: free of inhibition, accessing intuition, inviting the mind to collaborate. OSF sessions offer potent tools to access freedom, specificity & courage in movement, vocal practice & creative practice. A key aspect is individual creative empowerment as an instigator of positive change on the planet.
Workshop participants can choose to attend for the first two, or the full three weeks. Drop-ins are limited to those with comprehensive experience of Introductory Level OSF or SRT.
For the online program in July 2020, we are offering three price options.
1) 30% reduced rate for online participation: $450 USD (since online program expenses are reduced –no studio rent, no faculty travel or housing expenses– we are able to offer this special discount.)
2) If you still have a salary & can afford to pay a little more you can opt to pay full price: $670 USD (former early-bird discount rate). We’ll use it to subsidize those who are more financially vulnerable during this uncertain time.
3) For those out of work due to this pandemic & struggling to pay program fees we offer a further reduced rate: $225 USD (50% of online fee) .
Registration and payment in full due by 30 May 2020.
Additional discounts are available for certified OSF teachers with current membership. Some discounts are available for certified SRT teachers. Please contact us if you are a certified OSF teacher or SRT teacher & want to join either program, or if you are an experienced OSF or SRT practitioner interested in drop-ins for the morning sessions.
