Each teacher-in-training is required to complete 6 additional days of Open Floor study. The purpose of Electives is to tailor your time on the Open Floor as a student, gearing yourself towards practicing needed skills, or following a particular interest (e.g., meditation, emotional intelligence, etc.). Each trainee meets with their mentor to discuss their plan.

Choose among these options for Elective study:

  • Look for Elective workshops and classes on the Open Floor website - www.openfloor.org/calendar
  • Any Ground Floor Lab or Core Module you take for a second time can be counted as Elective study
  • 2 days of Elective study can be in a different embodiment modality in order to round out your skills (for example, a non-violent communication¬†workshop, a Somatic Experiencing workshop, etc.) in
  • Working as an assistant to an Open Floor teacher.¬†
