Encountering BodySoul: Theory and Practice

June 6-8, 2014

“When we take ourselves seriously we accept the responsibility of knowing and loving our body”                  Marion Woodman

In conjunction with the University of Winchester, BodySoul Europe is hosting a weekend event, offering opportunities to participants to encounter BodySoul work, theoretically and experientially.

Presentations and workshops will explore the BodySoul theme of Embodied Active Imagination from an experiential perspective using dreams, art, movement, voice and myth and incorporating the theoretical standpoints of Woodman, Jung, Theology and the latest developments in trauma and Neuroscience.

This will be an ideal opportunity for women and men unfamiliar with BodySoul work to explore its implications for both theory and practice yet also enriching for those who already have some experience.

Through experiential workshops and discussion panels we will explore Embodied Active Imagination in the context of BodySoul practice.

We will offer the opportunity to reflect upon and situate your own experiences and to understand the work’s theoretical underpinnings. We will work individually, in small groups as a collective.
