A Marion Woodman Foundation Community Workshop

13th – 18th June 2017
Led by Sue Congram & Marian Dunlea

At the traditional & charming SKITES Hotel, Ouranoupolis, Chalkidiki
Northern Greece



This workshop uses BodyDreaming™, active imagination, movement, voice work, mask and art to explore the as yet ‘unlived life’ — becoming more of the person that you were born to be.

Skites is beautifully situated and ideally suited to this kind of exploration. We work under a canopy of trees, overlooking the sea, supported by the beauty of nature. There we awaken to our body’s wisdom, listen to our dreams and give expression to this new energy in the creation of a mask.

We have developed this popular workshop through our wide experience as practitioners, informed by the teachings and trainings we have both engaged in for over 30 years – Jungian Analytical Psychology, Gestalt, BodySoul Rhythms of the Marion Woodman Foundation and Somatic Experiencing Trauma Training.


“You must give birth to your images.
They are the future waiting be born !”
Rainer Maria Rilke




Men and women who are engaged in their own personal work and want to inquire more deeply.

People who have worked with masks and want to explore more fully the relationship between mask work and dreams.

People who are professionally engaged in working with the development of others and interested in learning about the process of ‘active imagination’ using dreams, art, body, voice and mask work.

Greece-Workshop-2017Couples have benefitted enormously from attending this workshop together, however this is not an event for remedial work on relationships that are breaking down, but an opportunity for deepening your own self understanding in a shared space.



ACCOMMODATION http://www.skites.grGreece-Workshop-2017
Skites is a delightful villa set in its own grounds on the coast of Northern Greece. With private access to the sea and private beach, this venue offers a wonderful space for personal reflection and relaxation.Greece-Workshop-2017



The programme will start at 18:00 on the 13th June, ending after dinner on the 18th June.

On this workshop you will discover how to work with dreams through image and bodywork, you will explore your deeperself through active imagination, movement and voice, you will make a mask that symbolises an unlived part of yourself, exploring how to live the new energy that arises from your inner work.

If you have already made a mask, you may wish to bring it and work more deeply with it instead of making a new one. The unlived life of your mask may still be calling you, how might it be for you to explore the mask energy in new and different ways, opening yourself to a deeper calling that is yet to be discovered?



Marion Woodman once told a story of a dreamer, dreaming of a caged bird lying forgotten in the attic.

On retrieving the bird the dreamer hears its voice
“I only wanted to sing my song”.


You will be asked to bring a number of items such as a journal and soft pastels.
We will contact you nearer the time to provide you with full details of these requirements along with travel information from Thessaloniki to Skites.

Except for the point, the still point
there would be no dance
and there is only the dance.
T.S. Eliott

This workshop will introduce BodyDreaming™, an approach that includes affect regulation as core to the healing process, whether we are working directly with trauma in explicit memory or indirectly in implicit memory.  In the workshop we will develop skills in felt sense awareness and attunement that help to deepen and embody the experience of the dynamic ‘still point’. The regulating process helps to loosen the grip of our complexes, creating new neural pathways that enable us to move more freely between places of activation and deactivation, expansion and contraction in our bodies and psyches. While working our dreams, images and narratives we will explore the Jungian view of the Self as the guiding principle which is dreaming us and is rooting us in nature – our nature and nature around us.

BodyDreaming™ has grown out of my experience as a therapist practicing with clients individually and in groups. The work is deeply informed by Jungian psychology, Attachment theory, Neuroscience and the integrative somatic therapies including BodySoul work, Authentic Movement and Somatic Experiencing Trauma therapy.

Lectures and Seminars at the C. G. Jung Institute Zurich
Winter Semester 2017
February 2017

C. G. Jung Institute Zurich

Marian presented the following lectures at the C. G. Jung Institute Zurich during the WINTER 2017 Semester
(From Monday 20th to Friday 24th February 2017)



With Marian Dunlea and Wendy Bratherton
November 11-13th 2016
The Ammerdown Centre, Radstock,BA3SW,UK

“We come of age as masks / Our true face never speaks.” Rilke

Marian and Wendy invite you to 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 herself and we begin to relate to the mask energy, the hidden face of the feminine.



Using a combination of Qigong and 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 body work will prepare us to meet a body of “matter”- the clay and to make contact with the Cailleach energy.

BodyDreamingConsciousness™ is 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 reveal the mystery of the dream image and open to new possibilities and wholeness.

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