Body Dreaming Workshop

Marian Dunlea and Joan Harcourt
January 8-10, 2013

Marian writes:
“BodyDreaming – Connecting to the dream and its bodily resonance, we listen deeply to where in the body the dream reveals the complex and therein lies the key to opening to new possibilities, an embodied lysis. The dream points us to where we are holding tension, where energy frozen through trauma, can be accessed. "

In the workshop we build the temenos for the work by paying attention to both our individual body responses and the container of the group wherein the dream energy is held, mirrored and enfleshed.  By sensing the resonance of our dream images in our bodies we can track psyche’s bluehost energy and, as Jung and Marion Woodman teach us, see where the energy wants to go. Working in this way within the holding container of the group, our dreams are given ground in our bodies and we can have an embodied sense of the direction in which the soul energy may wish to express itself.

"The dream unfolds and new images and impulses emerge, the Bodydreaming leads the way .” In this BodySoul Community Workshop we will use movement, voice work and art .

Joan Harcourt writes:
Paying attention to the sensations feeling images in my body that emerge while in a safe, sacred held space, then exploring these new impulses and through movement play and dance has been my way of integrating and healing old wounds, to ‘Coming Home to Myself’. I have participated in Marian Dunlea’s inspiring and transformative workshops in Europe, and I am delighted that I will be assisting Marian on this programme here in Australia.”
