Dreamdancing® Group 2016- 2017: For BodySoul Women

September 1, 2016 - May 1, 2017

This group will reconvene in the Fall of 2016; please check back for updates!

Dreamdance_Fontana_Malone copyBring your desire to feel more at home in your body, and the courage to live your dreams! In an atmosphere of acceptance, curiosity, and care we engage the body’s vital energies, contacting the deep feminine and learning to live her wisdom in our daily lives.

Unresolved physical and emotional wounds and new potentials are held in the body until they are brought to consciousness, and are reflected in the images in our dreams. Once we connect with these energies, the flow of unconscious material can find expression through the body, so we can heal and grow.

Beginning with an introductory weekend, monthly three-hour sessions (Friday, 10am-1pm) offer participants the opportunity to enrich their explorations of body, psyche, and spirit through an integrative Jungian depth-oriented approach. Elements include working with dreams in the body (Dreamdancing®), Authentic Movement (“active imagination in movement”), creative methods from Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Rhythms® approach, Somatics and neuroscience.  Myths, fairy tales, and Jungian theory enhance our discoveries. Join us in celebrating soul in the body. (30 CEUs for MFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, DMTs & BC-DMTs)

Participants: This is an experiential & educational group. Participants have experience in Authentic Movement and dream work. Additional background in Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Rhythms® approach, expressive arts therapy or other forms of embodied creative exploration that engage conscious attention is helpful. Ongoing analysis or psychotherapy with an outside therapist is required.
