Marion Woodman in Filmed Conversation with Marlene Schiwy
*** December 14: 6:30-8:30 ***
Marion Woodman is a revered Jungian analyst who is internationally known as a teacher, lecturer and workshop leader. She is a Canadian mythopoetic author of numerous books, including Leaving My Father’s House: A Journey to Conscious Femininity, Coming Home to Myself: Reflections for Nurturing a Woman’s Body and Soul (with Jill Mellick), and Dancing in the Flames: The Dark Goddess in the Transformation of Consciousness (with Elinor Dickson).
A viewing of a filmed interview with Marion will be followed by a panel and group discussion. We will focus on the ways in which Marion’s experiences and ideas may empower us, individually and collectively, as the old year ends and a new one begins. This discussion will be followed by celebration and socializing.
“In T.S. Elliot’s Four Quartets, he talks about the rose of the soul….And as we’re working with our own souls, we open our rose petal by petal….At the right time it opens and however fierce the fire that it finds itself in, if it’s given time and love, it opens….And it may be in fire, but it’s the fire that’s giving it its strength. The fire — the suffering as we go through. We can’t avoid suffering; that’s simply part of life.”
