The Curriculum

The Five Filaments functions as a spiral curriculum (surprise!) where all the constituent modules interact nonlinearly.

The Five Filaments Advanced Practitioner (5FAP) distinction is awarded to Five Filaments Specialists (5FS) with the successful completion of their first Manual Modality Retreat training. It is possible to do this in any order as long as you start with the L1 Practitioner qualification.

The 5FAP Manual Modality Retreats are only available in person.
