The Marion Woodman Foundation presents:
A BodySoul Intensive – Dunderry, Ireland
July 4th – 11th 2016

Where the Water Meets the Sky:

Illuminating the Unique Partnership of the Feminine and the Masculine in the embodied Dance of Consciousness

with Marian Dunlea, Sue Congram and Sheila Langston

Where the Water Meets the Sky

There’s a point at which one must start caring
Where one fixes one’s vision on high
Don a mantle of vision and daring
Tis where the water meets the sky
– David Whalen

The pathway toward wholeness requires an embodied consciousness of both the feminine and the masculine energies. How do these energies move in both our body and in our psyche ? With a focus on the inner relationship between the feminine and the masculine in this intensive, we will explore how these opposites move us, shape our nervous system responses and guide us in the outer world, and in our relationships. We will work to restore a healthy dynamic between this creative duo using dreams, myth, mask-making, the body, voice and art.

This workshop will be based on the teachings of Jung, Woodman, Neuroscience and Attachment theory, as well as integrating body and voice, in order to encourage new life to emerge from the depths. The morning work will include BodyDreaming™ – a somatic approach to embodying the dream, and a story telling of the Psyche and Eros myth, and the relevant theory that underpins the BodySoul teachings.

The afternoons will be dedicated to body and voice work to open in a gentle way the innate wisdom buried in the musculature, tissue and cells of our bodies. The evening sessions will focus on the mask-making process, where we each slowly create a mask as a means of giving form and dimension to what is emerging from the unconscious in our psyche and soma. We will learn particular techniques of how to bring the mask to life, giving it breath, movement and voice.
