This new model was developed to meet the interests and needs of the individual. The first two years of part-time study, consisting of eight (8) sessions, will be led by Jaimen McMillan, SDI’s director. Successful completion of a minimum of 360 additional hours of study is required to graduate and receive a Level I diploma in the discipline of Spacial Dynamics®. These hours of study can be selected from many areas of interest, and they will be offered in many locations, including the Spacial Dynamics Institute. Former and current trainees vary widely in their ages, experiences, and abilities. They are united by their desire to pursue a study of spatially oriented movement, which enhances both personal and professional development.
With this new model, it is possible to complete certification sooner, according to the pace one chooses to take.
In the first two years, students train intensively over five (5) days in the fall and 5 days in the spring and over a 10-day period in the summer sessions. Fall and spring sessions will be offered on the East and West Coasts, and a student may choose the location that best fits his/her schedule and location for these sessions. The summer session brings all the students together at the Spacial Dynamics Institute in Mechanicville, NY, for a double session.
