Dare to Dream

Over 3 months, we will explore your dreams through dialogue and body movement. You will learn how to understand the language of dreams, why your dream symbols are important and how they can help you live a happier and more conscious life.

This series is based on the work of Carl Jung and Marion Woodman and the understanding that memories and trauma are stored in the cells of the body and can be integrated through our dreams and bodywork. We will incorporate the core principles of dreams, movement, voice, ritual and creative expression that were established by Marion Woodman, Mary Hamilton and Ann Skinner in their BodySoul programs. This will take place within the temenos (sacred space) of the meetings, allowing for safety and transformation.

Prerequisite:
An interest in understanding your dreams and the willingness to attend all 5 meetings (March 6-May 22)

Dates:
Mondays, March 6, 20, April 3, 24, May 8, 22, 6-8:30 pm. There will be a free introductory meeting on February 27.

The Rose in the Flames

The afternoon will include discussion, authentic movement, simple art forms and sharing and will be based on the BodySoul Rhythms® approach of Marion Woodman, Ann Skinner and Mary Hamilton.

Dance of Three

Elaine Heroux
March 15, 2015

Every day we juggle, and attempt to hold a fine balance between our actions, thoughts and emotions. This can be done consciously or unconsciously. More often than not, we act and emote unconsciously, not knowing that we can be more in tune with these three main dynamics. The famous psychiatrist Carl Jung said ‘what we do not make conscious comes to us as fate’. If we keep attracting the same relationships and experiences into our lives that are not working for us, it is time to become more conscious. How do we: refrain from ‘acting out’ of intense emotions, engage our energy in service of our soul’s purpose and manage our sometimes overwhelming thoughts and ideas? The Dance of Three will help us explore these relationships more fully so we can have increased awareness and clarity.

This workshop will be experiential in nature with plenty of time for discussion of Woodman and Jungian theory, self reflection and creative expression. This Dance was developed by Marion Woodman, Jungian Analyst, in collaboration with Mary Hamilton and Ann Skinner and is one of the pillars of the Marion Woodman Foundation BodySoul Rhythms® programs.

Elaine Heroux has completed the Marion Woodman Foundation BodySoul Rhythms® Leadership Training Program and has introduced this dance to The Jungian Center of South Florida with Andrew Harvey, Sacred Activist at the Duncan Center, as well as other groups. Elaine is a transformational coach using Jungian psychological tools, spiritual practice and dreamwork to help others change their lives. She takes private appointments as well as leading groups and workshops. Check out her blog at http://www.elaineheroux.com
