Yarra Valley - a place of Aboriginal Dreaming

Yarra Valley
a place of Aboriginal Dreaming

Bodysoul Downunder Australasia invites you to attend a 5 day MWF Bodysoul community residential workshop with this team of experienced international instructors.
Marian Dunlea, Sue Congram and Sheila Langston, instructors in the work of Marion Woodman will lead the conference/workshop.

This Bodysoul workshop will be based on the foundation work of Marion Woodman and Carl G. Jung and will include ongoing developments of neuroscience. It offers individuals the opportunity to turn deeply inward, to attune to the psyche and revitalize body and soul. In the beautiful landscape of the Yarra Valley, we will anchor to the land, thereby gaining the support necessary to encounter the dynamic feminine and masculine energies in the psyche. Through dreams, story-telling, bodywork and mask making, we will learn to recognize the faces of these archetypal forces; we will begin to discover how they can support and nourish us, as well as how the collective culture has wounded our relationships with them.

This workshop will provide the opportunity to bring the healing nature of image alive, to nourish and restore the body and soul.

What happens at the workshop?
This five-day workshop will be based on the teachings of Jung, Woodman, Neuroscience and Gestalt, 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, a story telling session, and the relevant theory that underpins the 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.

Who is the workshop for?
Women and men who are engaged in their own personal work and want to explore further.
Individuals searching for an in-depth experience of Bodysoul work and who have had some experience of personal counselling or therapy.
Also for non-professionals and professionals (e.g: Psychotherapists, Somatic Therapists, Spiritual Directors) who are involved with the development of others and those who are interested in learning about the process as described.
