Membership

Membership of the Metamorphic Association is open to people who wish to be part of a mutual support network for those practising and teaching the Metamorphic Technique. Being a member is also an opportunity to be involved in a collective enquiry into the nature of transformation.

 

There are six categories of membership:

 

 

FRIEND

Who is it for?

People wishing to support, receive news and keep in touch with the Association.

 

What is expected of me?

It is not necessary to have attended a Metamorphic Technique workshop in order to become a Friend of the Metamorphic Association.

 

What are the benefits?

  • You will receive Newsletters from the Association and be kept informed about how we are progressing in caring for this network and for the essence of Metamorphic Technique. 
  • You will also receive an invitation to join our International Annual Gathering; a wonderful event where Members from around the world come together for a long weekend to meet each other and further explore Metamorphic Technique.

 

ASSOCIATE MEMBER

Who is it for?

People who have attended a Metamorphic Technique workshop and wish to practise the Technique informally; this may include practising with family and friends, or building up practical experience with a view to working towards Practitioner Membership.

 

What is expected of me?

You should have attended at least one workshop with a Teacher Member of the Association (or a teacher trained and recognised by the Association).


What are the benefits?

You will receive:

  • the Association's yearly programme, which gives listings of practitioner and teacher members;
  • the quarterly Metamorphic newsletter; Metanetwork, which includes a list of all Associate, Practitioner and Teacher Members - so that they can contact each other to exchange sessions, share experiences, and organise local get-togethers if they wish;

Practitioner Members are encouraged to be actively giving and receiving sessions on an ongoing basis and in so doing are required to comply with the Association’s Code of Practice.
