Body as Compass: Dreams & the Soul

February 17, 20230

7-9:30pm EST / 4-6:30pm PST

DreamDancers Malone“In the deepest sense, we all dream not of ourselves, but out of what lies between us and the other.”    – C.G. Jung

Our bodies and dreams may be our closest links to the unconscious, expressing the soul’s longing through image, breath, gesture, the rhythm of our step, and the music of our speech. Dreamdancing® allows access to these rich inner resources on a cellular level, reawakening our natural rhythms, instinctual wisdom, and the songs of the soul.

Dreams carry treasures that enhance the meaning and depth of our life’s journey. Illuminating our inner landscape, they help us come to know disowned parts of ourselves, point to what we value, and provide guidance on our life path. Integrating C.G. Jung’s Active Imagination approach with embodied methods, Dreamdancing® introduces the person to the inner world of body sensation, feelings, dreams and images as movement helps them build a bridge between body and psyche.

Integrating presentation with experiential exploration, this evening will support you in nurturing body and soul through expressive movement, drawing, and writing. In preparation, you’re invited to let a healing image come to mind – something comforting, warming, or sacred that’s meaningful to you – from a dream, nature, an object on your altar, or something from your daily life.  And to have paper, pen, and colors on hand.

Says Jung, “My soul, where are you? Do you hear me? I speak, I call you – are you there? I have returned, I am here again.”  No experience is necessary, only curiosity and openness to engage the unknown.
