ANNUAL OSF WORKSHOP Summer 2021 – Online

In your own time zone: worldtimebuddy.com

These sessions are inclusive, welcoming and vitally useful for both newcomers to the practice and experienced practitioners. Options for two or three weeks, beginning with Week #1.

Now in its eighth year, this annual workshop assembles a world-wide community for dancing, creative practice and deep immersion — in a catalytic environment of colleagues with diverse experiences in teaching, healing, therapy, performance, theater, visual arts, writing, community and visionary organization-building. Workshop participants join OSF Sourcing Deeper participants and OSF teacher trainees for these morning sessions.

Deeply rooted in and 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, and developing a high degree of consciousness without self-consciousness. This work celebrates diversity, collaboration and 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 and creative practice. A key aspect is individual creative empowerment as an instigator of positive change on the planet. 

*Fulfills pre-requisites for OSF Sourcing Deeper. Partially fulfills pre-requisites for OSF Teacher Certification Programs.*

This workshop is eligible for a CADA/BC Training Subsidy.

In this five-morning workshop, Susanna offers introductory level OSF material in combination with improvisation structures using movement, voice, drawing, and writing.

The nature of the working process is web-like, cumulative and will happen in layers with no two days exactly the same. Each session is unique and draws on modalities of touch, deep-state imagery, alignment-focused exercises, and scores for improvisation. The sessions promote experiential learning, allowing for the timing of each individual’s process of discovery and integration, working both together and alone but in community. In this way, people of all levels of experience can explore alongside each other, tailoring the work to their individual capacities and needs.

Depending on the interest of participants and guided by their individual experience within the classes, one or two of the sessions may include in-depth discussion into essential concepts and pedagogical principals of OSF.

The class is open to adults of all ages, performers and non-performers alike.

Delve into freedom of movement and expression! Guided by the philosophy that the source of creativity and wisdom is available in each of us, Open Source Forms offers methods to access depth, specificity, courage and freedom in movement and creativity for all.

Over the course of this workshop, we will use imagery to shed inhibitions, find ease of movement, and access deep physical intuition. No previous dance experience necessary, only an openness to exploration.
