PORT TOWNSEND, WA, USA
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.
The cost of this Immersion is: $850 (excludes travel & accommodation)
The first step is to register and pay. Register early as spaces are limited.
After we receive your payment, you’ll receive a confirmation email and you will be asked to answer a few simple questions including a confirmation that you have met the prerequisites. Faculty reserves the right to refund your payment and cancel your registration if the training fills up, you have not met the prerequisites, or for other reasons.
Please note, while the Immersion is part of the Open Floor Teacher Training, acceptance to this Immersion does not mean acceptance to the Teacher Training.
*Conscious Dance Practices: Open Floor, Soul Motion, 5Rhythms™, Movement Medicine, Freedom Dance, Azul, Tamalpa Life/Art Process, Continuum, Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies. Let us know in your student information form if there’s another conscious dance practice you have studied that you would like us to consider.
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.
MUDRA FINANCIAL AID SCHOLARSHIP FUND
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.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION SCHOLARSHIP FUND
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.
