About the Event
This year’s conference theme is “BodyDreaming: Self-Regulation, Jung and Neuroscience in Trauma Recovery.” Our plenary speaker is the accomplished Jungian analyst and author Marian Dunlea, from Ireland. Marian is a passionate student of neuroscience with extensive training in a host of healing modalities. She has been leading workshops internationally for 30 years and her understanding of trauma is profound. What we are learning about the body through the study of neuroscience is revolutionizing our understanding of trauma and its treatment. Trauma changes our neural circuitry. And the residue of trauma can leave us without the sense of safety we need to be curious and open to life. Instead, we can find ourselves stuck in patterns of defense--fight, flight, or freeze. As a result of her decades of study, Marian has created a distinctive approach to healing, working with clients who spend significant portions of their lives in aroused states of distress. She will introduce us to a technique that she calls BodyDreaming, a gentle method that explores ways to connect with locked energy in the body. Her approach is to bring our attention to the body’s expression in dreams, images, movements, and gestures. She will lead us through exercises that allow us to experience the sensory elements of BodyDreaming, showing how we can unblock areas in the body where complexes and trauma are stored, allowing us to live with greater safety and comfort. In addition to being a delightful person, people who’ve attended Marian's workshops say she manages the impossible – to be stimulating, clear, soothing, and experiential, all at once. Marian will be assisted by her colleague Patricia Llosa, a Jungian analyst and art historian.
