Discovering the Unlived Life with BodyDreaming™ and Mask Work

The workshop will be led by Sue Congram, Marian Dunlea and Pauline Sayhi

Working with BodyDreaming™, mask work, art, voice and movement, we will connect more deeply to our bodies and psyche allowing our imagination to flow freely. Surrounded by the beauty of Skites on the edge of the Aegean Sea, a source of calm and energy, we will give expression to the unlived life by making a mask. We will then explore how to live the new energy that arises.

If you have already made a mask in a previous workshop, you may wish to bring it and deepen your understanding and experience of your unfolding life. This deepening process opens up new dimensions in the mask. If you would like to learn more about the practicalities and deep processes of mask work, Sue and Marian will bring elements of this into the teachings of the week.

This popular workshop is in its 12th year. Numbers are limited. To avoid disappointment we encourage you to book early. The workshop will end late on June 16 (so it is suggested to stay until the morning of June 17).

Discovering the Unlived Life Through Dreams and Mask Work

“Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become
” Carl Gustav Jung

This workshop uses dream work and active imagination, body and voice work, mask and art to offer reflective space to explore the as yet ‘unlived life’, the potential to become who we are meant to be.

Skites is beautifully situated and ideally suited to this kind of exploration. We will work under a canopy of trees, overlooking the sea, supported by the beauty of nature. There we will awaken to our body’s wisdom, listen to our dreams and give expression to this new energy in the creation of a mask. We will draw on the teachings of Marion Woodman and the BodySoul work in conjunction with Jungian and Gestalt theory.

This workshop is for:
· Men and women who are engaged in their own personal work and want to inquire deeper
· People who have worked with masks and want to explore more fully the relationship between mask work and dreams
· People who are professionally engaged in working with the development of others and interested in learning about the process of ‘active imagination’ using dreams, art, body, voice and mask work
· Couples have benefitted enormously from attending this workshop together, however this is not an event for remedial work on relationships that are breaking down, but an opportunity for deepening your own self understanding in a shared space.

Where the Water Meets the Sky: Illuminating the Unique Partnership of the Feminine and the Masculine

Marian Dunlea, Sheila Langston, and Sue Congram
July 7-14, 2014

“There’s a point at which one must start caring
Where one fixes one’s vision on high
Don a mantle of vision and daring
Tis where the water meets the sky.”
– David Whalen

The pathway toward wholeness requires a consciousness of both the feminine and the masculine. How do these energies move both in the body and in the psyche? With a focus on the inner relationship between the feminine and the masculine in this intensive, we will explore how these opposites move us and guide us both in the outer world, and in our relationships.

We will work with dreams, myth, mask-making, the body, voice and art. Through these varied means, we will discover the lived experience of these forces of the feminine and the masculine.  We will meet the changing faces of the archetypes in each of us, in our dreams, in our art, and in our bodies.  What is the feminine and masculine in the voice, what different movements convey expression from both partners? How does one support the other?  How are they culturally viewed and how has that shaped each of us as we are today?

The myth of Amor and Psyche will provide us with a mirror and a map.  In Psyche, we see a heroine who has to complete a series of impossible tasks on her quest for wholeness. We will consider these tasks in the light of the feminine and masculine energies within us.  Discovering how these energies meet and part in the body, as well as in the psyche, brings us towards the possibility of a new partnership in the dance between the two.
