Stars Beneath the Sea: The Legacy of Marion Woodman  

                                Marion Woodman 
Article by Tina Stromsted, Ph.D. - Cellular Resonance and the Sacred Feminine:
Marion Woodman's Story


September 8, 2017 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.

Presenter: Tina Stromsted, Ph.D.
Location: St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church, Inwood at Mockingbird - PARISH HALL

$20.00 non-members (includes a complimentary reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres and wine)

Marion Woodman is an explorer of the depths who has guided countless women and men on their personal journeys to self-discovery.  Her work encourages a dive into the waters of the unconscious, as mapped by Jung.  Redeeming the embodied feminine, these explorations have brought light to the denied, denigrated, dark body.   A rich alchemical mix, Woodman integrates spirit and matter, masculine and feminine, art and science.   This talk will illuminate the pioneering contributions of Woodman, Skinner, and Hamilton in the BodySoul Rhythms approach, reflect on the body/psyche/soul split, and explore the process of conscious embodiment in healing.  This integrative approach can be applied to many aspects of work and life, such as Somatics, medicine, contemporary neuroscience, and attachment theory.  Come join us for an opportunity to witness how Marion found light in the dark body, the stars beneath the sea!

Saturday Workshop

Embodied Wisdom: The Dance of Three


September 9, 2017 9:30 a.m.– noon

Presenter: Tina Stromsted, Ph.D.
Location: St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church, Inwood at Mockingbird - SOUTH ROOM

$40.00 non-members (includes a complimentary continental breakfast)

One of the first exercises I learned from Marion was the ‘Dance of Three’, in which three participants come together to explore Active Imagination in movement. This embodied experience enhances one’s ability to be present, with oneself and with another, inviting a level of perception that evokes deep respect and empathy.
