Psyche/Body Connection: A BodySoul Intensive in Switzerland

Judith Harris, Dale Genge, and Sheila Langston
Assistant Instructors:

Ursula Kuchler Zimmermann and Vernessa Riley-Foelix

September 5-12, 2010

This program is based on Marion Woodman’s BodySoul work and the psychology of C.G. Jung. We combine lecture and discussion with experiential body and voice work in an intensive format. Jung’s concept of the psyche/body connection is the core of the work we undertake to deepen our understanding of this paradigm. Through individual dream imagery and individual body responses, we will experience image as the connector between body and soul. Participants will make plaster masks to deepen this process. The focus will be on the natural development of the conscious feminine and its relationship to the masculine in each individual.

While staying in a beautiful and natural setting, we will work individually and together, honoring the uniqueness of each person. Each participant will listen to her own soul in her body and honor its needs, hopes, and creativity.

Prerequisites:

Open to women with at least 50 hours Jungian analysis/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.
