BodyDreaming: Integrating body, mind and psyche in the treatment of developmental trauma

BodyDreaming: Integrating body, mind and psyche in the treatment of developmental trauma

Saturday 28 March 2020 – London

VENUE

6th Floor, Foyles Bookshop
107 Charing Cross Road
London
WC2H 0DT

A one-day workshop led by Marian Dunlea

In this training workshop, Marian will guide participants through her embodied therapeutic approach, BodyDreaming™, which explores the interconnection of body, mind and psyche and provides a theoretical and practical guide for working with early developmental trauma.

The method aims to restore the balance of a dysregulated psyche and nervous system and to activate innate healing capacities, through which we can see how it is possible to change our default responses to trauma of “fight, flight, freeze” and to create new neural pathways. This methodology integrates analytical psychology, attachment theory, trauma theory, somatic and neuro-scientific theories and is useful for psychotherapists, art, dance and movement therapists, and body workers interested in learning how to work with body and psyche.

The Subject is DREAMING

The Subject is DREAMING -THE IFPP CONGRESS Irish Forum for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

THE IFPP CONGRESS
Irish Forum for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Marian Dunlea – Ross Skelton – Ann Murphy – Donna Redmond – Rob Weatherill

9TH NOVEMBER 2019
10AM – 5PM

HILTON DUBLIN
CHARLEMONT PLACE
SAINT KEVIN’S
DUBLIN 2

This one day seminar is dedicated to exploring and discussing ideas and concepts about the nature of dreaming, its significance in our lives and its significance in terms of our mental wellbeing. The seminar will be complimented by an exhibition of art by Patricia Fitzgerald and Helen O Connell. The paintings and sculpture will serve to provide visual representations of spoken dreamscapes.

The significance of dreaming can be traced throughout historical, religious and anthropological archives. Records of dream interpretations appear in writings as far back as the ancient Sumerians and Egyptians, in the Hindu, Buddhist and Christian tradition and in aboriginal, Mexican and native American culture.

We may dismiss our dreams, be alarmed by nightmares or consult dream dictionaries to decipher their meanings but we are not unaware of the fact that we dream and are often confounded by them. Are dreams a portal to another realm, the royal road to the unconscious mind as Sigmund Freud described or simply an artifact of night time brain activity, a neural activity filing away and storing the memories of the day?

The seminar will be of interest not only to professionals working in the area of mental health and wellbeing but also to anyone with an interest in the topic.

The Irish Forum of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (IFPP) are hosting this seminar to mark their annual congress. 6 CPD points have been awarded for the day by the Irish Council of Psychotherapy (ICP).

The day will be led by Marian Dunlea, Ross Skelton, Anne Murphy, Donna Redmond and Rob Weatherill.

SAMHAIN BODYDREAMING™ &
CLAY MASK WORKSHOP

31 October to 3 November 2019
with
Marian Dunlea & Wendy Bratherton

The Ammerdown Centre, Radstock, BA3 5SW, UK

In response to the call from previous participants and in line with their feedback we are extending this popular workshop by one night, we have managed to secure another day along with the use of an additional art room.

“We come of age as masks
Our true face never speaks.” Rainer Maria Rilke
SAMHAIN BODYDREAMING & RED CLAY REVEALINGS

Come and create a clay mask at Samhain, the time of year when the Cailleach, the Old Hag of Winter, makes her descent into the Underworld to incubate the seeds of the new life that will emerge at Imbolc, the Celtic spring.

We meet the Cailleach at the threshold of Winter in working with the damp, dark clay, learning to trust our impulses, listening to our dream images, feeling our senses engage with the prima materia of the raw clay. The mask begins to reveal itself and we begin to relate to the mask energy, the hidden face of the feminine.

Using a combination of Qigong and Biodynamic Craniosacral work, we will deepen into our bodies to see how our energy is moving and resonating at this time in the year’s cycle. The bodywork will prepare us to meet a body of “matter” – the clay – and to make contact with the Cailleach energy.

And we will experience BodyDreaming™, a way of working with dreams and images that tracks the pathways in the body where the energy of the dream is held. It invites us into the place of healing between body and dream, where old traumas, symptoms and complexes hold fast in the neural pathways of the body. When supported, the body may be ready to release this blocked energy and be restored to its inherent organic wisdom. Image and impulse align with greater ease and fluidity. We feel the ground of our sensing body interweaving with psyche, recovering our connection with the living earth in a mutual participation.

Come and discover the mask that will take you into Winter, be your guide and companion in the times of descent and incubation.
