The “transfer learning” approach used in a therapy setting can be very useful when applied to learning the new skills and particularly the part where they have to be implemented into the real-life context. We demonstrate how we use this approach in the EightOS setting to facilitate knowledge transfer between different contexts and disciplines.

Learn more about EightOS:
Level 1: Research Lab
Request an invitation to join a research lab session of EightOS (usually 1 to 2 hours long) and experience a certain aspect of the practice. We have both online and offline events, which usually take the shape of a workshop where we mix both theory and practice / physical movement. We host multiple events throughout the year around the world, so when you sign up you will receive the full schedule for both online and offline events available. If the dates do not suit you, you can cancel and get a refund.
Level 2: Activation Program
If Level 1 is a demo version of EightOS software, then Level 2 is a full activation license. It is usually comprised of several sessions with a certain narrative (about 12 hours long in total), combining physical body practice, research, and creative work. You also get access to special training materials, digital and artistic software and hardware tools we created to facilitate EightOS practice in other contexts. You will have a chance to learn and enhance your embodied understanding of EightOS approach and integrate it into your daily practice.
You can join one of the four sessions that we host every year. The number of places is limited, so it’s better to get your pass early. Your ticket is refundable and transferable, so you can return it or give it to somebody else.
Level 3: Custom Session
We can also organize custom-made ∞OS experiences for a specific contexts. It can be a presentation, a performance, a workshop, a participatory experience or any other event. You can see reports from our previous events or check the examples of the modules that we can provide. Send us a message to receive more information.
You can also join the custom sessions as a participant, in which case we advise you to apply for the Level 1 or Level 2 as you will then be informed about the external events.
