Working with Dreams in the Healing Arts
with Keren Vishny

Working with dreams both enlivens the therapy experience and facilitates deep healing. This program is geared to Healing Arts Practitioners of diverse backgrounds who wish to incorporate more dreamwork into an existing therapy practice.

This class will integrate Keren’s experiences of Natural Dreamwork and BodySoul Rhythms®, as well as some teachings from Zero Balancing ® and BodyDreaming.

 

Class participants are strongly encouraged to keep a dream journal prior to and during the program, and must also be prepared to use their own dream material for class exercises.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
an Alchemical Journey 

with Eva Rider

"Fairy tales are the purest and simplest expression of collective unconscious psychic processes. Therefore their value for the scientific investigation of the unconscious exceeds that of all other material. They represent the archetypes in their simplest, barest, and most concise form."
~ Marie Louise Von Franz

In the Presence of Grief:
A Day of Sharing and Ceremony

with Andrea Wells

"To live in this world you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and when the time comes to let it go, to let it go”.
-Mary Oliver

“ Give your sorrow all the space and shelter that is its due”

-Etty Hillesum


Being in grief often means feeling isolated and alone even when surrounded by others who love and care for us.


Ceremony and ritual honor the larger mysteries of life and death and the transformative experience of grief.


Drawing upon Jungian understanding of psyche and Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Rhythms embodied practices, participants will explore the soul’s grief experience through ceremony, including movement, dreams, Active
Imagination and Proprioceptive
writing inquires and witness.

$300 US. Space is limited.

Psyche’s Circle – Experiential Study Group
with Andrea Wells 

Psyche’s Circle participants will delve deep into excerpts from written works of Marion Woodman, James Hillman, Marie-Louise von Franz, Ann Ulanov, and of course Carl G. Jung himself.

 

Deep inquiry and discussion allows each woman to gain an awareness of her own soul’s inner gold, shadow, complexes, and guiding dream symbols. Dream work, movement, art, and writing processes provide for the experiential expression of the soul as we explore, discover, embody and bridge the inner and outer worlds.

Transform Your Life Through Embodied Active Imagination: Online Voice Dialogue Group
with Elaine Rosenson, M.A., LMFT

This time of great uncertainty brings a myriad of emotions. Join our online Zoom community where your voices can be understood and heard.

 

These groups are designed to assist each member to explore the unconscious and the shadow in the tradition of Carl Jung using a method of active imagination called Voice Dialogue*.

 

Similar to the Dance of Three, created by Marion Woodman, Ann Skinner and Mary Hamilton in their BodySoul Rhythms® programs, Voice Dialogue also has three aspects of consciousness. The person who is the “Mover” is asked to embody and give voice to any and all aspects of the mind/body/soul that desires expression. This includes images from dreams, waking life, belief systems, protector parts of us and parts of us that are disowned. The facilitator “mirrors” this expression and holds a presence with warm curiosity. The group serves as the Container holding a sacred space as they witness the moment to moment unfolding of the unique experience of self.

 

“In creating, we are created.” – Marion Woodman

 

The interaction of these three aspects of consciousness creates a strong embodied aware ego process which allows a person to integrate the different and often conflicting aspects of self. This integration process promotes individuation and a sense of wholeness, self-acceptance and choice. This is a non-judgmental place to do deep personal work while learning a powerful new approach with clients! You will learn through didactic teaching, experiencing, and dreamwork.

 

*Voice Dialogue was originated by Dr. Hal Stone, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst, and Sidra Stone, Ph.D

Cost: $60 US per session/ $120 per month

Body Soul Writing Teacher Training Program
with Marlene Schiwy

After more than three decades of creating hundreds of workshops and retreats for women in Canada and internationally, Marlene Schiwy is offering an Intensive One Year Teacher Training Program for women who want to develop their own workshops. This one-of-a-kind training program combines expressive writing and Jungian themes with music and movement explorations, collage, dreamwork, and other modes of creative expression.

 

This training will cover all facets of facilitating inspiring workshops and soulful spaces that nurture women’s creativity. Topics will include creating content and deciding on form and structure, determining registration fees, ensuring trust and safety in the group, teaching in person and online, and much more.

 

If you would like to offer workshops for women that include a substantial writing component, expand your current work with clients to include more expressive writing, or step into your role as a teacher in a more grounded, confident, and effective way, please contact me to discuss whether this program might be a good fit for you.

 

This program will be conducted primarily on Zoom and most sessions will be held on Sundays. It includes approximately three monthly sessions with regular email contact between sessions as well as quarterly one to one meetings.

 

At the end of twelve months, participants will be ready to offer their own workshops for women. A Certificate of Completion will be issued.

Reclaiming Our Lives, Reclaiming Our Earth:
Finding the Light through the Dark

with Jean Esther, Polly Howells, Janice Stieber Rous

In these dark times of global life-threatening illness, intense cultural and political divide, racial, economic and other social injustices, and ever-increasing threats to the wellbeing of our planet, we are challenged to find deeper and deeper levels of resilience, compassion and wisdom in engaging with life from the core of what we hold dear.

 

After two years of meeting only on Zoom, we will gather in person this coming spring at the beautiful Lifebridge Sanctuary in the Shawangunk Mountains of New York State. Individually and in community, we will draw on our sacred interdependence with all of life. Through story, dreamwork, meditation, bodywork, and creative expression, we will join together to fortify our bodies, minds and hearts in the beauty of nature and the renewal of Spring.

 

PLEASE NOTE: We will follow the Covid protocols required by Lifebridge Sanctuary during our time together. We look forward to seeing you there.
