Jung Embodied: Seeking the Creative Shadow

April 24, 2009 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PDT


This experiential weekend will support exploration of the creative potential within the shadow.  Using elements from Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Rhythms approach and “embodied active imagination” with it roots in the work of C. G. Jung, we will endeavor to open to the unlived life.  Informed by their backgrounds in dance, theater, Jungian and Somatic Psychology, the presenters (Tina Stromsted and Meg Wilbur) will also draw from their extensive training and teaching with Marion Woodman.

Friday the presenters will discuss Jung’s concepts of the shadow, particularly in relationship to energies in the body.  Clinical material will illustrate and amplify body/psyche connections.  Saturday offers an opportunity to explore the work experientially, deepening our connection to mind and body.  Such work supports the reawakening of resonant consciousness in our cells, invites the play of imagination, and promotes integration through movement and voice, enhanced by music and art.
Authentic movement is a gentle, natural means to nurture oneself, connect with buried energies, and unfold one’s inner dance. Simple exercises in freeing the voice involve relaxation, breath, and sound to help release one’s authentic voice. These creative processes do not involve performance, and are attuned to the needs of the individual. Come explore “Jung embodied” through these gateways to the unconscious.
