Designed for those who’ve experienced the full spectrum (3 weeks) of Introductory OSF or SRT
, and want to deepen their practice and/or pursue OSF Teacher Certification. 

This past year we discovered we can indeed feel in-community with each other despite inhabiting separate far-flung environments. That we can experience rewarding levels of intimacy, adventure, trust, and compassion. And that with a playful approach to screens, we’re able to find new forms while avoiding the dreaded ‘zoom fatigue.’

Advanced OSF material is deeply rooted in & fluidly expanded from advanced Skinner Releasing practice. It’s where OSF/SRT Introductory work is headed! New alignment insights, new depths, more & deeper deep-states, transporting imagery.  Joan Skinner did not intend Advanced Level SRT to be codified or limited to the 12 ‘Ongoing’ SRT classes.  She left us with a wealth of material not included in those 12 classes.

Our advanced sessions are culled from decades of notes, explorations, and advanced material created and passed on by Joan and other veterans, and integrated with improvisation experiments — material developed and augmented by Stephanie and other experienced OSF & SRT teachers during the past 25 years.

We’re the only SRT or OSF teachers on the planet, that we know of, currently creating classes at this advanced level! 

To ensure responsible facilitation, participant numbers are limited. Hold your place by registering for the whole series at a significant discount, or register in advance for single sessions.

Location: ONLINE

Faculty: Stephanie Skura, Nate Dryden, Susanna Hood, assisted by Keely Isaak Meehan

Jump to Pre-requisites and Application

The  3-WEEK OSF SOURCING DEEPER  preparatory program (formerly called OSF Pre-Teacher-Training) is designed for experienced OSF & Skinner Releasing practitioners who long to more deeply understand underlying conceptual structures & strategies of OSF. Some may decide to follow with an OSF Teacher Certification Program. Others may want to take the work in other directions.

Though not a commitment to OSF Teacher Training, OSF Sourcing Deeper is a required pre-requisite for all applicants to OSF Teacher Certification Programs.  It’s also designed for those who might take the work in other directions —  e.g. research in movement, somatics or other fields, integrations with other practices, or purely for study & reflection, allowing future applications to unfold in time. 

OSF Sourcing Deeper is a ‘first pass’ at the complex array of skills & concepts that allow facilitators to create seemingly magical environments conducive to deeply transformative experiences. 

The program includes the full spectrum of Introductory Level OSF material in morning sessions, plus substantive afternoon participatory discussions, vocal practice, sophisticated improvisational practice, hands-on practice, writing & drawing practice, language & music considerations — plus related readings in relevant philosophical topics that enhance our understanding of the profound concepts underlying this practice. For those who choose to follow with OSF Teacher Training, Sourcing Deeper will render the rigors of OSF Teacher Certification more digestible, less overwhelming, and more fun!

After Seattle sessions conclude, Sourcing Deeper participants planning to join an OSF Teacher Training Program will continue their process during the intervening year with independent study projects, including faculty feedback via skype or email.

“Some of the best teaching & guidance I’ve ever received in my dancing/movement life! Don’t miss it.”  Jeremy Steward, 2017 Certified OSF teacher

Options for two or three weeks, beginning with Week #1.

Workshop participants will join Sourcing Deeper OSF participants for morning OSF technique sessions, bringing together a worldwide community for dancing, creative practice, and deep immersion — in a catalytic environment of colleagues with diverse experiences in teaching, healing, therapy, performance, theater, community, and visionary organization-building.

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.
