The Work

“Wisdom combines experience with knowledge. Experience is lived through the passions of body; knowledge is learned through the discipline of the mind”
Marion Woodman

In these workshops we will reflect on the threshold and tasks of our journey to be more fully who we are, towards wisdom, wholeness and truth. We will use ritual, meditation, poetry, music, myths, stories, dance and art, drawing on the inspired teachings of noted Jungian Analyst, Marion Woodman, and based on the intensive workshops created and devised by Marion Woodman, Mary Hamilton and Ann Skinner.

“The Marion Woodman Foundation is a non profit organization founded to ensure the works initiated in BodySoulRhythms Intensives, created by Marion Woodman, Mary Hamilton and Ann Skinner continues and flourishes.This work is based on the belief that psyche and soma are inseparable and must be worked on together to become more conscious.” The unique integration incorporates working with dreams and imagery together with body and voice in a powerful way while honouring the uniqueness of each individual MWF Programs.
