When doing is all we know, being is just another word for ceasing to exist. When being begins to flow through dance and paint and song, joy is no longer luxury but absolute need. – Marion Woodman (Jungian Analyst & Author)
BodySoul work holds that the psyche and soma are inseparable; therefore, body and mind are explored together in the service of healing and growth. BodySoul programmes involve listening to the body and paying attention to unfolding dreams. In this way, guided by the Self, space is provided for the unconscious to emerge through movement, voice-work, painting, journaling, myth and mask making.
BodySoul teaching has a strong base in the psychology of C.G.Jung, as developed by Jungian analyst Marion Woodman, dance educator Mary Hamilton and voice coach Ann Skinner. Some current BodySoul programmes are explicitly informed by attachment theory and emerging research from the field of neuroscience.
