Workshops/Master Classes

OSF Sourcing Deeper

July 6 – 24, 2020:  Monday-Friday, 10:30 AM – 6 PM,
19th & Roy, Capitol Hill, Seattle

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

VIEW PREREQUISITES & APPLICATION

This  preparatory program (formerly 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 be there purely for learning.

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 any experienced practitioners who want to deepen their practice, or who might take the work in other directions  e.g. research in movement, somatics or other fields, integrations with other practices, or with an interest in 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!

FEES

If application is submitted by 15 Jan 2020 & deposit by 15 Feb 2020: $1752  USD
With later registration: $1906 USD
Registration information will be provided upon acceptance.

OSF Workshop

Opportunity to study intensively with OSF creator  STEPHANIE SKURA & co-faculty NATE DRYDEN & SUSANNA HOOD, assisted by KEELY ISAAK MEEHAN

JULY 6 – 24, 2020
Monday – Friday, 10:30 AM – 1:30 PM
19th Ave & Roy St, Seattle

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

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

Deeply rooted in & fluidly expanded from Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT), OSF invovles 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.

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