Walking the Tightrope: The Jung-Nietzsche Seminars as Taught by Marion Woodman-Seminar 2

Marian Dunlea, Sheila Langston and Patricia Llosa
April 9-12, 2015

A Marion Woodman Foundation Seminar in cooperation with the European Ongoing Professional Development Group

Body work, like dream work, is soul work. Body and dream illuminate the point where spirit and matter touch and do not touch”   Marion Woodman

In this, our second Woodman Nietzsche Seminar, we will continue to delve into Jung’s Nietzsche seminars as well as Marion Woodman’s teachings from the Walking the Tightrope study guide. We will study and discuss these written sources and continue the process of integrating the text with the voice and body work.

Our exploration of shadow and archetype will expand to include the metaphors of the eagle and the snake, the transformational sequence of the camel, lion and child as well as the development from “thou shalt” to “I will” in the individuation process. The afternoon work will focus on the Dance of Three exercise as we explore the triad of Mover, Mirror and Container together, pursuing the question of the relationship between body and psyche in the Nietzsche seminars.


This workshop is open to anyone who is a member of ALC or has completed 3 BodySoul Intensives with the Marion Woodman Foundation. This workshop also qualifies as a make-up seminar for Leadership Training Program Participants seeking to complete their Leadership Training. If you have questions regarding qualifications and/or exceptions, please contact the Marion Woodman Foundation Program Office at office@mwoodmanfoundation.org

Location Description:

The Boghill Centre has been a wonderful strong grounding container for the Body Soul work in Europe and we are looking forward to continuing our exploration of this 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. (www.boghill.com)
