Dream images carry wisdom and guidance on the soul’s journey. Diving into dream images using Marion’s Woodman’s embodied BodySoul practices of movement, art, voice and writing allows the energy of your images to be revealed and expressed. Archetypal aspects of images will be discussed and incorporated to amplify personal images at the intersection of Body and Soul.

Moving Into Wholeness A day of reflection, dreamwork and gentle movement
with Keren Vishny & Ann Shine Duck
Sunday, December 3, 2023 9am - 4:30pm Winnetka Community House, Winnetka Illinois
Join a respectful, nonjudgmental community of individuals as we take time out from the fast pace of daily living to reconnect with ourselves and each other. Attuning to the the rhythms of late fall, we’ll drop into slow-time.
We’ll draw on exercises and contemplative practices from Natural Dreamwork, BodySoul Rhythms and NARM traditions to align with the rhythms of body and dream. We will begin the day in a circle, getting to know one another and creating personal intentions for our day. With the support of guided meditation, we will drop into the dream world to revive and deepen our dream experience. Each participant will have the opportunity to explore dream material through dream embodiment, reflective journaling and image-making. These practices will be interwoven with gentle movement to support integration of the material. In the afternoon, we will use Natural Dreamwork 5D dream enactment to explore 2 or 3 dreams in greater depth. 5D work brings the group together as a community: group members volunteer to embody the various dream entities thus allowing the dreamer to walk through their dream. In this way the experience becomes a “living dream” allowing us to reclaim feelings we have brushed aside, recognize the Sacred Encounters each dream holds, and find ourselves pulled into dream roles that resonate with our own healing, growth and deep desires.

Body as Compass: Navigating the Opposites in a Changing World
with Tina Stromsted, PhD, Jungian analyst
April 5, 2024 - April 11, 2024
Glenstal Abbey, Garranbane, Murroe, County Limerick, Ireland
These challenging, polarizing times call us to draw from creative, healing energies from deeper parts of the Self. Our movement session will facilitate an exploration of the Opposites ~ Shadow elements we tend to project onto others and Healing elements from within. Together, we will draw from the deep wisdom that our dreams and inner images can offer - the healthy, creative imagination rooted in the body’s cellular intelligence. Through natural movement we will engage energies needed for resilience, hope, and new life in these chaotic times - the vitality we need to stay present, live fully, and contribute to a changing world.
