Discovering the UnLived Life Through Dreams and Mask Work: A 5-Day Retreat in Northern Greece

Sue Congram and Marian Dunlea
July 5-10, 2011

This event is run as a personal reflection residential workshop with dream work and active imagination, using bodywork, voice, mask, and art. Held at the delightful Rahona Beach hotel overlooking the sea in Northern Greece, we use the inner and outer space of nature’s environment to share dreams, to connect with the unlived life, and develop personal masks as a symbol of new life.

We will honour the discipline of morning silence, a time for self reflection and journaling dreams. Then working with our dreams, we will see where the energy of the dream is moving in the body and how that opens the possibility to work with our symbols and images in an embodied form. The energy that emerges is represented in the mask making process, which then begins to become embodied in the wearing of the mask. We will draw on the teachings of Marion Woodman and her BodySoul work in conjunction with Jungian and Gestalt theory.

Gestalt practitioners as well as Jungian analysts will attend this workshop; a comparison will be made between Jungian and Gestalt dream work.

Dates:
July 5-10, 2011, Tuesday, July 5, 6 pm – Sunday, July 10, early afternoon. There is time to relax in the afternoons before starting the evening sessions.
