View 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.

Fees

With accepted application by 15 January 2020 and Early Deposit by 15 February 2020, the cost for Sourcing Deeper is $1752 (all fees included).

Though not a commitment to the full OSF Teacher Certification Program, the 3-week Pre-Training Program provides prerequisites** & a sense of the nature of OSF Teacher Certification, to better know if it’s for you. It’s a ‘first pass’ at the complex array of considerations hidden behind the teaching veil, all required to effectively facilitate these transformative sessions.
