With 40+ years of clinical practice, one of Tina's core guiding passions has been to reclaim body wisdom. 


In these 3 hour-long interviews with Jung Platform founder Machiel Klerk, we'll traverse rich Jungian territory, bringing together three core Jungian areas of interest: dreams, the shadow, and the creative spirit, with conscious embodiment at the center of our explorations. James Hillman reminds us that "the body is the vessel in which all transformation takes place.”  Let’s explore this essential ground of be-ing, together! 

Body as Compass: Navigating the Opposites in a Changing World
with Tina Stromsted, PhD, Jungian analyst

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.

Reclaiming the Bones: calling forth essence from the depths

A retreat for women

with Sheila Langston and Keren Vishny, September 15 - 20, 2024

The Christine Center, Willard Wisconsin


Bones are the seedbed of our life’s blood. They shelter our heart and speak to our innermost depths. In our day to day living how easily we lose touch with bone as the foundation of our structure, as an aspect of what moves us and an essence that goes beyond our physicality. In an environment of great natural beauty, we will reconnect to the bones of our being and connect with other women on a similar journey. With a fairytale as container, we will explore dreams, move, express and play together. Join us as we enter slow time, and discover the song that our bodysoul bone-essence is singing.

Visit Keren's website for more information!

Fridays September 20, 27 & October 4, 11, 2024

TIME: 11am -1 PM PST
Online via Zoom

Permission by artist’s estate


The more you work with your dreams and your unconscious, and honor it, the more you

understand it, and it understands you. Marion Woodman


Dream images carry wisdom and guidance on the soul’s journey. Diving into dreams through the
portal of Marion’s BodySoul Rhythms embodiment practices including movement, art, voice
and writing, allows the energy of the 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.

Wild Soul Salon will provide a foundation of working with dream images in professional practices or in starting one’s own dream group with peers or friends.

Caves of Painted Dreams
Dreams, Symbolism and ART in the Painted Caves of France

Carol Aalbers, PhD &  Kirah VanSickle, Artist 

& Magen O’Farrell, Anthropologist

September 10-19, 2025

Cave of Painted Dreams.png

Nowhere is that more evident than in these beautifully painted caves which likely functioned as sacred spaces for early humans. C. G. Jung and Jungian Analyst Marion Woodman believe that by learning to remember and attend to our dreams, we can discover more about ourselves and our relationships to others.  Utilizing active imagination and recording our own dream images with various art mediums, will enhance our experience and aid in our inner journey.

On a typical day we will have a dream workshop/art session after breakfast to connect to/elucidate our own images. We will then visit one of the painted caves in the area. Lunch together provides time for discussion with some afternoons free to hike, kayak, bike, rest, or visit some of the other wonderful sights in this area including castles of all sorts, and wineries. We will reconvene in the evening to experience ways to further amplify dreams with art-making, mixed-media techniques, music, movement, and guided imagery.
