Jungian analyst Marion Woodman is the subject of a daylong program of film, discussion and movement. We begin by showing Dancing in the Flames, a film which explores the life of this inspiring woman. Celebrated for her work on feminine psychology and addiction, her vital words and wisdom hold a key to understand­ing the world’s current crisis. With honesty and trademark wit, Woodman explores the myster­ies of the soul’s journey and reveals a series of psychological ‘deaths’ and ‘rebirths’ that have made her who she is today.

She is joined in the film by her life-long partner, Ross Woodman, a professor of Romantic poetry who speaks of the transformations in their marriage, and esteemed mystic and author Andrew Harvey. Though the majority of her writing and teaching addresses women’s experience, she is also sensitive to the wounded inner feminine in men.

The film will be followed by a panel pre­sentation by three women who have worked and trained with Marion for decades: San Francisco Jungian Analysts Tina Stromsted and Gail Grynbaum and Sausalito artist and work­shop leader Christina Zecca. Each will describe and illustrate with short film clips how the work with Marion has affected them personally and professionally.

After a light lunch, the presenters will lead a movement experience in a safe, protected space. They will provide an  opportunity to experience the essence of Woodman’s work of embodiment in order to activate healing the body/psyche-soul split  suffered by most of us.

Participation is voluntary and those who wish to join us are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing.
