This experiential weekend will explore elements from Marion Woodman’s BodySoul approach and “embodied active imagination,” rooted in the work of CG Jung.
Friday the presenters will discuss theoretical aspects of Jung’s and Woodman’s work, highlighting significant learnings from their extensive participation and training with Marion Woodman at her intensives, informed by their own unique backgrounds in dance, theater, Jungian, and Somatic Psychology.
Saturday offers an opportunity to explore these theories in practice, deepening our connection to mind and body. Such work supports the reawakening of resonant consciousness in our cells, invites the play of imagination, and promotes integration through embodied dreamwork, movement, and voice, enhanced by music and art.
Authentic movement is a gentle, natural means to nurture oneself,
connect with buried energies, and unfold one’s inner dance. Simple exercises in freeing the voice involve relaxation, breath, and sound to help release one’s authentic voice. These creative processes do not involve performance, and are attuned to the needs of the individual.
Come explore “Jung embodied” through these gateways to the unconscious.
