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.
