New! Further Beyond Beginnings in Seattle

OPEN SOURCE FORMS
FURTHER BEYOND BEGINNINGS

July 11- 15, 2022 — IN-PERSON
Monday through Friday
10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Russian Community Center
Capitol Hill, Seattle
Facilitators: Stephanie Skura & Nate Dryden

Cost: $30/day or $130 for full week (5 days).

Join us! If you have at least two weeks’ experience with Open Source Forms or Skinner Releasing, we invite you to join current OSF Teacher Trainees for five daily sessions, encompassing material offered during the third week of OSF programs.

First-week material is what’s most often taught in OSF & SRT workshops, and itself comprises a body of foundational material that bears deeper & deeper exploration for many years. Those who’ve gone a bit beyond WEEK1 may have experienced some of the fascinating, valuable developments of WEEK 2 material.

The rarely-taught material of WEEK 3 — elegant, intricate and absorbing — offers a bridge toward the highly sophisticated, deeply nourishing world of Advanced Practice. Images are more sophisticated. We are ready to spend more time in deep processing mode, and more deeply within our own psyches. We find new effective alignment awarenesses and methods for opening our voices. Energy moves in spirals. Many concepts are integrated, and we discover the web-like connections within ourselves, with each other, & with the world. As awareness expands both inward and outward, we find new avenues for healing, a calming sense of compassionate connection, and ready pathways toward presence & suppleness that extend into our lives beyond the studio.

During what often feels like an increasingly stressful world swirling around us, we Open Sourcerors feel continually grateful for the valuable resource of this practice in our lives.

Registration now open for our 2022 Annual 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. 

6 – 24 June 2022
10:30am – 1:30pm PDT
The Russian Community Center of Seattle
704 19th Ave E, Seattle, WA

Facilitated by Stephanie Skura and Keely Isaak Meehan

“It is such a special place, space, and world you facilitate.” Jeremy Steward

The OSF ANNUAL OPEN WORKSHOP is open to all — those without prior experience in SRT, OSF or traditional dance, as well as more experienced practitioners. This workshop assembles a worldwide community for movement, creative practice and deep immersion, in a catalytic environment of colleagues with diverse experiences in teaching, healing, therapy, performance, theater, visual art, writing, community-building and organization-development.

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 prerequisite for OSF Sourcing Deeper Program. 3-week workshop fulfills prerequisite for our Advanced Practice workshops as well.*

“Having these classes available to me is saving my butt. Of course they are saving everyone’s butt — but I do not take lightly the haven that I am being provided by this gathering of souls that you have brought together in your own way. “ Kris Knutson

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.

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.
