Tuscany 2“Our task is not to create more images of light, but to release the light that is trapped within the darkness.”           – C.G. Jung

At a time when the world is being pulled apart by opposites, this retreat offers an opportunity to consult our inner compass. Here one can find re-orientation, strengthen inner authority, and nourish body and soul.  Offering a sanctuary for centering, we will find renewal through natural movement, stillness, dream work, and guiding elements from Alchemy’s ancient wisdom, re-membering our deep humanity in the vital web of community.

How do we evoke the light in the dark body? How do we embody the soul spark, bring it to consciousness, and live it more fully in our daily lives?  Authentic Movement and dreamwork allow access to these rich inner resources on a cellular level, reawakening our natural rhythms, instinctual wisdom, and the songs of the soul.

This international retreat will explore the impactful role of embodied experience in the healing process.  Alchemy’s basic elements can deepen our understanding of embodied transformation, experienced spontaneously through the practice of Authentic Movement. Dreams carry treasures that enhance the meaning and depth of this spirited journey.

The Alchemists’ aim was to study nature and to learn from its profoundly regenerative capacities. So too, dreams reflect our inner landscape, our spiritual condition. This workshop engages dreams and Alchemy in relation to bodily experience in the process of healing and transformation through moving and witnessing practice.

We will draw from:

  • BodySoul® Work
  • Jungian theory
  • Somatics
  • Dreaming
  • Drawing
  • Voice exploration
  • Writing

Studio sessions will be supplemented by seminars focusing on questions arising from your personal explorations, as well as applications relevant to your creative and professional work.

This retreat is designed for those with a depth of experience in Authentic Movement, welcoming healing practitioners, clinicians, educators, artists, and those interested in growth and matters of the spirit.

Nestled in Tuscany’s beautiful rolling hills and vineyards, the private retreat center offers a peaceful, inspiring setting for self-renewal.  Walking trails, delicious Tuscan cooking and a swimming pool enhance the experience.
