Embodying the Soul:  
An Introduction to the Work of Marion Woodman

Individuation can only take place if you first return to the body, to your earth, only then does it become true.
— Jung, The Vision Seminars (1930-34)

The Marion Woodman Foundation grew out of Marion’s deep respect for dreams, C.G. Jung’s understanding of the psyche, the great wisdom of the body and her passionate commitment to articulating the sacred feminine and the embodied soul.

The Bodysoul Rythms work has a strong base in C.G. Jung, and supports the individual’s process of working towards consciousness, and the contained group process to descend into the unconscious and the body. The Bodysoul Rhythms works holds that psyche and soma are inseparable, and must be worked on together to come to consciousness – to the positive feminine in our bodies and the positive masculine in our creative pursuits.

In this lecture Josephine will share with you her reflections on her experience of participating in the Bodysoul Workshops in Ireland and San Francisco and Australia and the deep awareness of the connection of body soul at all levels of the Cosmos Exploring the dreams, identifying the symbols in the body and the symptoms and through story, music, dance and art one brings them to consciousness and embodiment, connecting to the energy of these emerging symbols.

The BodySoul Community Workshop will be an introduction to Bodysoul Rythms work which brings deeper awareness to the individual through music, poetry, dreams, art, movement and dance, thus releasing repressed energies and feelings held in the body.  One learns to pay attention to body sensations, feelings, images and dreams, while grounded and trusting ‘the not-knowing’ in a safe, sacred, non-judgmentalspace. Only then can one discover the treasures within, along with healing, love of life, and deeper connection to self and others.”
