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 five 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;
  • access to the members' area on the Association's website which includes facilities for sharing ideas, news and experiences with the whole membership online.

 

PRACTITIONER MEMBER

Who is it for?

People wishing to practise the Metamorphic Technique with the public; this includes those practising solely the Metamorphic Technique, those also practising various therapies, and medical and para-medical professionals using the Technique within their work.

 

What is expected of me?

You should have attended at least two workshops with a Teacher Member of the Association (or a teacher trained and recognised by the Association), with an appropriate period of practical experience between the two workshops. While the degree of practical experience required is not fixed, as a guideline, the minimum expected would be 50 sessions given to at least 10 different people, and 20 sessions received, over 6-12 months.

 

Practitioner Members are expected 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.
