An Evening With...

Evija Volfa Vestergaard

Dr. Evi will share her Jungian-oriented experience working with shadow and trauma material while developing a complimentary healing approach with Biodanza.  In her experience, deep healing necessitates both the inward-spiraling reflections of Jungian shadow work through the inner Self as well as the outward-reaching spiral movement toward joy in community that is facilitated by Biodanza.  Parallels will be drawn between theoretical ideas of Jung and Rolando Toro, the founder of Biodanza. Examples of movements will be described and an opportunity to experience them will be offered during the evening.   

Evija Volfa Vestergaard,holds Ph.D. in Jungian and Archetypal Studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute.  She is an independent researcher who applies her first-hand experiences of living and working in different cultures to grow insights about human traumas, complexes, and healing through movement.  Evi has lived in Eastern and Western Europe, North America, and Africa, where she has had close personal and professional encounters with people of different cultural backgrounds, their traditions, and ways of life.  Her approach to research is multidisciplinary - she combines Jungian psychology with cultural studies, anthropology, folkloristics, literary studies, and somatic explorations.


The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.
