SAMHAIN BODYDREAMING™

A Body Soul workshop with

Marian Dunlea, MSc.,

October 31st – November 1st 2014,   Einsiedeln, Switzerland

“The Symbols of the Self arise in the depths of the Body” Carl Jung

SAMHAIN BODYDREAMINGIn the Celtic tradition, Samhain marks the beginning of the New Year on November 1st. 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. In this workshop we will attune ourselves to the ‘underworld’ of the body, the somatic unconscious. We will focus on establishing the body’s natural harmonic rhythm by regulating cycles of arousal, and in this way support the incubation of the images arising from the cellular depths.

In this creative and embodied approach we will learn practical skills for dealing with threshold moments of arousal generated by the autonomic nervous system’s response. We will experience our capacity to regulate these moments using right hemisphere interventions, including orienting, movement, gesture, voice, art, and dream work. This workshop will provide a rich and deep introduction to BodySoul work.
