TEACHERS CONFERENCE: Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon, March 2-5, 2018
10:30 AM - 6 PM. All certified OSF teachers are invited. Morning sessions facilitated by Stephanie Skura. During afternoons we'll address topics of interest, discuss the future of OSF & OSF TT, delve deeper into OSF concepts we're curious to explore, & share with each other about our integrations, teaching, performing, research, successes, quandaries, etc.
Fee: $361 USD

To Register for OSF Teachers' Conference

ADVANCED PRACTICE WORKSHOP: Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon, Mar 2-5, 2018
10:30 AM - 1:30 PM + one afternoon discussion about OSF Teacher Training & related topics of interest. Morning sessions facilitated by Stephanie Skura.
Fee: $207 USD

To Register for Advanced Practice Workshop

Open to those who've experienced the full spectrum of Introductory OSF or SRT (3 weeks of progressive sessions) & want to deepen their practice & join the growing OSF community. Some might want to pursue OSF Teacher Certification in future — or not. Advanced OSF material is deeply rooted in, & fluidly expanded from, advanced Skinner Releasing practice.

These advanced sessions are rarely taught, only a few on the planet are teaching them, & Stephanie might be the only one currently creating classes at this advanced level.

We’re EXCITED to have an opportunity to be together with our hearts, physical selves, spirits & brains — interacting, discovering, anchoring, dreaming — & navigating toward wholeness, sanity, & creative empowerment in our increasingly challenging political climate.
