Embodying the Soul: A BodySoul Community Workshop with Joan Harcourt, Josephine Dyer and Dodi Rose

Joan Harcourt, Josephine Dyer, and Dodi Rose
October 25-26, 2014

This Marion Woodman Foundation BodySoul Community Workshop is an introduction to the work of Marion Woodman who established the BodySoul Rhythms® work with Mary Hamilton and Ann Skinner. It has a strong base in Carl Jung analytical psychology, and supports the individual’s process of working towards consciousness by understanding dreams, and integrating them through reflection and expression in movement, dance and art.


Joan writes:  “BodySoul work brings deeper awareness to the individual through music, poetry, dreams, art, movement and dance, releasing repressed energies and feelings held in the body by paying attention to body sensations, feelings, images and dreams, while grounded and trusting “the not-knowing” in a safe, sacred, non-judgmental space has been my way of ‘Coming Home to Myself’ and discovering the treasures within, brings healing, love of life, and deeper connection to self and others.”


Josephine writes: “I have found through participating in the Intensives a way to integrate body soul that brings deep peace and creativity to the surface so I am please to be promoting the Marion Woodman Foundation BodySoul Community Workshop here in the Yarra Valley for a second year. We hope this is a pre-runner to hosting a Marion Woodman Foundation BodySoul Intensive, normally a 6-7 day long workshop in Australia in the future.”


Josephine Dyer has attended several Marion Woodman Foundation Intensives® in Ireland over the past few years and is involved with BodySoul Downunder activities in Australia.

Dodi writes:  I participated in Marian Dunlea’s workshop in Australia and was inspired by the manner in which Marian facilitated the process – leading  to deeper awareness of Bodydreaming. By working in a deeper symbolic way with our dreams and through a greater body awareness, Marian was able to illustrate aspects of Carl Jung’s analytical psychotherapy. Jung attached great importance to the unconscious and recognised a personal psychological problem as an opportunity for the individual to engage in personal development, a process he called ‘individuation’.”


Dodi Rose has completed a certificate In Jungian psychology from the Jung Institute Zurich. She coordinates the Art & Memory Program at National Gallery Victoria (NGV).
