The Embodied Soul: Honoring the Work of Marion Woodman
at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts

For mental health professionals and everyone interested in Marion Woodman’s work

“Life is not a circle but a spiral around a central place, and we are working our way up and working our way down. Bad times give us strength to move into good times with a whole new vision of what life is about. Hold that place, that still point between the tension of the opposites. It’s the central core that holds the spiritual power.” 

~ Marion Woodman


Marion Woodman has been a pioneer in developing a conscious relationship between psyche and body in the quest for wholeness. As a Jungian analyst, Marion developed BodySoul Rhythms® along with voice specialist Ann Skinner and movement teacher Mary Hamilton from their shared belief that body and psyche must be worked with simultaneously for individuals to heal.

Learn about the BodySoul approach to wholeness and the work of graduates from the Marion Woodman Foundation Leadership Training Program. Through lectures, discussions of dreams, movement, voice, creative expression, and ritual, you can honor Marion’s work as you attune to body wisdom, heal old wounds, and begin to reintegrate all aspects of your being.

Meals and accommodations are available at Kripalu Retreat Center. Please visit their website for more information.

Dates: Dates of the Conference are 7:30 pm June 2- noon June 4, 2017
