Attune to and listen for embodied soulfulness

Embodied soul is our capacity to be at one with our deepest sense of self, with each other, and the larger field, our surrounding environment, the natural world.

 And something so much greater – the vastness of existence.

Common Good & Embodied Soul - Open Flor Immersion

Curriculum Highlights

  • Practice being present in the moment without agenda or plan
  • Cultivate comfort and faith in movement and dwelling in the unknown
  • Explore, embody and integrate layers of the self much deeper than personality, to include our connection to the largest sense of Self
  • Uncover our dreams and destinies, our sense of meaning and purpose
  • Find the unique gifts we were born to bring to our communities
  • Experience our full membership in the more-than-human world
  • Attune to, and listen for, embodied soulfulness in ourselves, in others, and in the collective
  • Investigate what it is to be inspired by Spirit, to be resourced and informed by a larger/largest perspective
  • Offer yourself freely and openly to Life so that it can move and express itself creatively/uniquely through us as embodied Soul

"I was aware of the profound affect dance has on me mentally, emotionally and spiritually and this gave all of it a language. The resources available worked their magic on my body . It is a powerful tool for self-expression, and its effects are transformative."

OFI has two scholarship funds that support those who are in financial need and wish to study. You can apply for these scholarships once you have been accepted onto the Immersion.


A mudra is a position in which we place our bodies to cultivate a specific awareness. The spirit of the mudra of sobriety is “neither more nor less than necessary.”  We ask applicants to contemplate, in consideration of their own true needs, and all others who need help too. 


OFI provides scholarships to increase the diversity of OFI students and teachers. With this Scholarship, Open Floor International is taking a first step in reaching a goal of students and teachers being reflective of the world where Open Floor is practiced. The majority of OFI’s current teachers live in the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Most are European or of European descent, speak English fluently, are 35 – 65, identify as women, and are able-bodied.  We are actively looking to expand our reach outside these populations with our scholarship fund. Priority is given to people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Person of Color (BIPOC), LBGQT+, gender fluid, differently abled, and/or live in less wealthy regions.
