    The song you heard singing in the leaf when you were a child
    is singing still..... Mary Oliver

    The Giving Voice to Your Dreams retreat will use BodySoul practices drawn from the teachings of Jungian Analyst Marion Woodman. We will dive into the essence of a dream through movement, art, voice and active imagination.

    This inquiry process involves creating a poem from your dream, and from the poem, your soul song. As we give voice to our dreams we experience a connection between our body and soul.

    This women's workshop will be held in a private home in the beauty of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    Fee: $125

    CEU's: 3.5 CEU's MFT and LCSW

    Retreat is never meant as escape, a permanent disappearance. In fact, its purpose is restorative; what retrests is strengthened by a conscious decision to rest, to prepare for what's next.

    As we begin to move toward the changing season, the daylight recedes and the earth begins to move into rest and regeneration.


    with Andrea Wells, Mft and Marlene Schiwy, Phd.
    Saturday October 6, 2012 10:00 - 5:30

    This day-long retreat is an exploration into your soul's calling. In The Soul's Code, Jungian Analyst James Hillman proposes that our calling in life came with us into this world at birth, and that it's our mission in life to realize its imperatives. He calls this the "acorn theory"- the idea that our lives are formed by a particular image, just as the oak's destiny is contained in the tiny acorn.

    In this workshop we will use writing, movement, and simple art to explore the unique images that resonate with your body and soul. Please bring a dream that you are curious about, a journal or sketchbook, and an image that draws you. (can be a postcard, a photo, a magazine clipping etc.)
