The Countless Faces of the Feminine
BodySoul Brasil Workshop 2023
February 9 -12, 2023
Colombo - Parana - Brazil
(Southern Region Of Brazil)
We invite you to join us on this 4 days in-person, close to nature, workshop following the format of BodySoul Rhythms® workshops as we continue the work of Marion Woodman, Ann Skinner and Mary Hamilton in Brazil. As a participant you will experience this work and the opportunity it provides for transformation and growth, connecting the wisdom of the body to the rhythms of the soul and spirit.
We will go through the myths of the greek Goddesses, Hera, Demeter, Hestia, Atena, Artemis, Afrodite, Persefone, Tetis and explore the energy of these Goddesses in our psyche, body and soul. In a sacred space, Themenos, we will be sharing reflections, meditations, poetry, dreams, myths, body and voice work, mask making , art and dance.
During these almost two and a half years of collective silence due to the pandemic, we had an opportunity to get closer to our particular space of silence, where the "presence of absence” was detected on us and told us that our repertoire wasn't enough to be able to deal with this unknown. We can think of this especially important time as an incubation period. A period that is part of our personal and collective history, bringing seeds for our growth, bringing possibilities of change if we allow ourselves to get in touch with ourselves with presence and awareness.
“ Without an objective observer, and without a desire to connect with the inner dynamics, there can be neither conscious femininity nor conscious masculinity, there is simply no way to bridge the gap between the inside and the outside” (Marion Woodman in Conscious Femininity).
This workshop is limited to 20 participants. It is recommended that you have some familiarity with the works of Marion Woodman through her books: Pregnant Virgin, Addiction to Perfection, Conscious Femininity.
The workshop will be given in Brazilian Portuguese. Non Portuguese speakers are welcome and translators will be provided.
Facilitated by Marcia Taques Bittencourt - MWF Board Member and Workshop Leader
