Marion Woodman Foundation
Gathering of BodySoul Women Event and Annual General Meeting
We will be gathering in Stone Mountain GA (just outside of Atlanta) for our Annual General Meeting in November 2019. The meeting/BodySoul Gathering will be held at Stone Mountain Manor Inn.
We are planning a new type of BodySoul gathering and invite you to participate. We will open with a reception, followed by a cherishing ritual and some container building on Friday evening. Then Saturday we will be doing some body movement work, voice and imagery exercises, some expressive arts and plenty of time to replenish and renew BodySoul connections in a sacred space.
Our theme is “Finding Our Yellow Brick Road” – based loosely on the story of The Wizard of Oz, we will be focusing on the journey – how do we begin, where does it take us, what do we find on the journey, who are our companions, and so forth. The Marion Woodman Foundation is in a time of great change, and we on the Board feel a bit like we are in a “munchkinland” of strange customs and missing information. Yet we also feel the constant presence of loving women and the Divine Feminine who help us take the next right step.
We, the Board, are finding our “yellow brick road” as we look at where the Foundation has been, where it is now, and where we are headed. We want to continue and grow the work of Marion, Mary, Ann and Paula and we also want to be able to reach out to younger women and newer interested parties to the deep work of BodySoul.
As a Board we don’t think we have the answers, but we do relish the questions and invite you to share them with us. This gathering is also special because we will be able to welcome and honor our dear former teachers – Ann, Mary and Paula – who will be participating as BodySoul sisters in the process.
Please sign up today – spaces are limited. We look forward to seeing/meeting you there!

JOIN US IN PACIFICA IN FEBRUARY 2020
We Are All Teachers:
Opening the Door to Creativity at
Pacifica Graduate Institute in California
February 24-28, 2020
Save the date for a week-long gathering offering the opportunity to experience BodySoul work as we have all come to love—from dream work, to expressive arts, to movement and voice. Several different women who have completed the Leadership program will be offering their work to us for participation in container building, depth work, inner focus and bringing the soul work into life.
We will have the full Ladera Campus at Pacifica. Accommodations and meals are provided by Pacifica and are included in the registration cost. Our five days together will include morning dance, meditations and dream kivas. We will have movement work, and then separate into smaller groups for a deeper dive into the work. All sessions will be led by Leadership women who worked with BodySoul Rhythms® and have continued to bring the work to life in their individual ways. We are all teachers. We are hoping that this chance to gather, share, participate and experience BodySoul work will open a new door to creativity. We are hoping that the Marion Woodman Foundation can build on this to create new and exciting formats that are more affordable and accessible in today’s culture.
In addition CEU’s will be available.
As details become available, they will be posted on the MWF website!
BodySoul Community Workshops
There are many women who teach BodySoul Community Workshops that share Marion’s vision. These programs will continue to be offered in several different places around the world. See Current BodySoul Community Workshops.
We will be updating everyone with new information on the website as it becomes available. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Program Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
