From Stephanie Skura, long-time SRT teacher-trainer & core SRT faculty, currently instigator & director of Open Source Forms:
Given sufficient numbers, the next OSF Sourcing Deeper will be held IN-PERSON in Seattle.
June 6 – 24, 2022
Monday – Friday, 11am – 6pm PDT..
This 3-WEEK program (formerly called OSF Pre-Teacher-Training) is designed for experienced OSF & SRT practitioners who long to more deeply understand underlying conceptual structures & strategies of OSF. 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. 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-requisitefor 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.
The program includes the full spectrum of Introductory Level OSF material in morning sessions, plus substantive afternoon participatory discussions; hands-on, vocal, and sophisticated improvisational practice; writing & drawing practice; language & music considerations. Related readings in relevant philosophical topics also 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 continue their process with independent study projects, including faculty feedback.
Applicants for OSF Sourcing Deeper need experience with a minimum of two consecutive weeks of Introductory Open Source Forms or Skinner Releasing Technique, preferably within the past two years.
