Designed specifically for those who’ve experienced the full spectrum (three weeks) of Introductory OSF or Skinner Releasing practice.  This advanced work is rare and special: sophisticated, deep, evolved in alignment approaches, richly navigating states below conscious level. It satisfies our hunger to let our edges dissolve, to lose ourselves, to be transformed.
