Coming Home to the Body: The Legacy of Marion Woodman
The way to healing lies in finding a connection between body and soul. Soul needs body as much as body needs soul. Each is out of context without the other, an abandoned fragment of what it is.
C.G. Jung believed that psyche and body are one. Marion Woodman, with Mary Hamilton and Ann Skinner, developed BodySoul Rhythms® from their common belief in our body’s wisdom and their many years exploring the relationship between psyche and soma. Based on the conviction that psyche and soma are inseparable, they believed they must be worked with simultaneously in order for us to become more conscious, more whole as a human being.
Marion Woodman’s years as a teacher, author, mentor, and friend greatly influenced the work of Pacifica Graduate Institute, the Marion Woodman Foundation, the Jungian community, and beyond. Through her work, we are graced with a knowledge gleaned from keen insight, an inspiration discovered from embodied experience, and a passion rooted in deep conviction.
Through discussion, dream, movement, voice, creative expression, active imagination, writing, theatre, sandplay, and ritual—in the safety of the temenos and while honoring the uniqueness of each individual—participants will have an embodied experience with the possibility of healing old wounds and the emergence of new energies.
This work will offer individuals alternative approaches to healing themselves and their relationships. This work will help clinicians attune to their bodily experience—the roots of embodied empathy—which, in turn, can assist them in aiding clients who may be suffering from depression and dysthymia, post traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety, and other challenges to well-being resulting from trauma, psychological, emotional, or spiritual wounding.
We invite you to join us for this very special weekend in beautiful Santa Barbara to explore the tenets of BodySoul Rhythms® and to celebrate the legacy of Marion Woodman.
The conference will be held at Pacifica Graduate Institute’s Ladera Lane Campus at 801 Ladera Lane, Santa Barbara, CA 93108. Located on 35 acres in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this residential retreat center provides a unique and peaceful environment for these events. This campus has lodging, dining facilities, and parking onsite.
Check-in for the conference will be held on Friday from 5:30-7:00 PM. The conference will begin on Friday evening at 7:00 PM and end on Sunday at 1:00 PM. Meals are provided to encourage ongoing dialogue and exchange throughout the conference.
Three pre-conference workshops will be held on Friday. The Saturday afternoon program includes multiple concurrent presentations to choose from and each session will be offered twice. Space in each of the presentations is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please indicate your preferences on the registration form. Optional Social Dreaming Matrix and Qigong sessions will be held on Saturday and Sunday mornings. An optional screening of the film, Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames followed by discussion will be held on Saturday evening.
Participants will learn and experience key aspects of BodySoul work through:
• Identifying those archetypes that may be activated within individuals, couples, families or groups as energies affecting relationships in our lives.
• Recognizing and distinguishing archetypal energies operating within individuals, couples, families, or systems as we strive to heal our bodies, our psyches, and our relationships from psychic, emotional, psychological, and physical wounding.
• Synthesizing dream images, myths, fairytales, body, voice, and the creative processes that aid the process of individuation, through examination of patterns, that help us to regain psychological, emotional, and spiritual wholeness within ourselves, our relationships, our families, and in groups.
• Applying specific clinical techniques in the service of building the essentials of a strong, embodied ego by developing, integrating, and rewriting personal mythology.
