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.
For the online program in July 2020, we are offering three price options for those accepted into this program:
1) 30% reduced rate for online participation: $1170 USD (since online program expenses are reduced –no studio rent, no faculty travel or housing expenses– we are able to offer this special discount )
2) If you still have a salary & can afford to pay a little more you can opt to pay full price: $1752 USD (former early-bird discount rate). We’ll use it to subsidize those who are more financially vulnerable during this uncertain time.
3) For those out of work due to this pandemic & struggling to pay program fees we offer a further reduced rate: $585 USD (50% of online fee) .
Once accepted to the program registration and payment is due by 30 May 2020. Enrollment in Sourcing Deeper is not guaranteed until payment is received.
