Walking the Tightrope: The Jung-Nietzsche Seminars as Taught by Marion Woodman, Seminar 1

Marian Dunlea, Patricia Llosa, and Sheila Langston
April 10-13, 2014

This program is a Marion Woodman Foundation Seminar in cooperation with the European Ongoing Professional Development Group


Let’s look at the image of the tightrope. Can you visualize that tightrope and envision yourself walking on it? Ask yourself, what tightrope do you walk every day?” Marion Woodman, Seminar One


In this advanced seminar we will combine work with two textual sources- C.G. Jung’s Nietzsche Seminars from 1934 and the Marion Woodman Foundation’s publication of Walking the Tightrope. The study of these texts will be integrated with the practice of the core exercises presented in the BodySoul Rhythms® Intensives in order to deepen the understanding of the participants who are already familiar with the BodySoul Rhythms® work. This material brings into focus the role of the body in bringing the operations of the unconscious psyche to consciousness.


If you have questions or to enroll in this Seminar please contact Antoinette O’Callaghan at antoc6137@gmail.com. Please do not enroll through the Marion Woodman Foundation website.



This workshop is open to anyone who is a member of ALC or has completed 3 BodySoul Intensives with the Marion Woodman Foundation. Exceptions may be made based on a review of a participant’s experience: please contact Marian Dunlea at mariandunlea@gmail.com


The Boghill Center in the Burren, Country Clare, Ireland

Location Description:

The Boghill has been a wonderful strong grounding container for the Body Soul work in Europe and we are looking forward to exploring this new Nietzsche work in that familiar container. Situated on 50 acres of natural bog and wetland, it offers seclusion and privacy for group activities, a fully nature-based experience, and a certain ancientness and mystery. The complex includes a rush labyrinth, a stone circle, a nature trail, a wildlife pond and a large vegetable garden and orchard.


Transport to and from the Boghill is by way of Dublin, Shannon or Cork airports (Boghill is 45mn approx. by car from Shannon airport). There may be lifts available from other participants or a group of participants may wish to rent a car: please contact Abigail Whyte at abigailwhyte776@gmail.com
