In the Realms of Coatlicue: A BodySoul Intensive in Mexico

Mary Hamilton, Paula Reeves, Martha de la Garza Adler, and Patricia Llosa
February 11-18, 2011

We are pleased to announce the details of the upcoming, early 2011 program: In the Realms of Coatlicue: A BodySoul Intensive in Mexico. The original team of leaders, Mary Hamilton, Paula Reeves, Martha de la Garza Adler, and Patricia Llosa will return to teach this unique course. This will be the fourth year the Marion Woodman Foundation has brought the BodySoul Rhythms® work to Mexico, and we are thrilled to do so.

This work is based on the belief that psyche and soma, body and soul are one, and must be worked on together to become more conscious. Each participant has her own unique story as we grow in the understanding of what it means to consciously embody the Sacred Feminine. We will explore our own bodysoul through dance, music, art, dreams, lecture, and discussion. We will focus on the connections between dreams and body imagery, exploring the bridges that link the two worlds.

We’ll spend the week together in a peaceful setting, surrounded by the rich vegetation that lies cradled under the majestic heights of the sacred Tepozteco Mountain. Working individually and together, each participant will listen to her soul in her body and honor its needs, hopes, and creativity using her own particular imagery to discover and voice her own authentic self. Mexico’s rich cultural heritage and history offer resonant ground for the possibility of integrating worlds.

We welcome all our past participants and hope that you will spread the word to your friends and colleagues as new participants are most warmly welcomed as well.  We hope you will join us.


This program is open to women with at least 50 hours Jungian analysis or therapy and 50 hours active bodywork (such as yoga, tai chi, Authentic Movement, Feldenkrais, 5Rhythms – bodywork that uses imagery and/or conscious attention), or consent of instructor.
