WORKSHOP

This program WILL NOT BE recorded.

Registration closes at NOON on February 3rd. 

Zoom Links will be in your confirmation email.

This workshop will focus on dreams and healing states via work with the imagination and the somatic unconscious.

Our goals will be:

  • To understand Jung’s theory of the somatic unconscious
  • To learn to recognize and gather somatic information from ourselves and our patients
  • To learn the basics of how to change fight-flight-freeze-collapse-paralysis responses to stress and trauma into forming new neural pathways in a co-regulated, restorative relationship with the sensing body
  • To explore the concept of the subtle body in alchemy, yoga, and psychotherapeutic practices
  • To utilize the Jungian practice of the “active imagination” in relationship to the body as a process of therapeutic healing
  • To learn to identify the elements of “healing states of consciousness,” in which psychosomatic unity is present and can be developed.

Monika Wikman, Ph.D, is a Jungian analyst and astrologer. Author of Pregnant Darkness: Alchemy and the Rebirth of Consciousness, she has also contributed chapters, articles and poems to numerous publications including a chapter in The Dream and Its Amplification, edited by Erel Shalit and Nancy Furlotti. A graduate of the Jung–Von Franz Center for Depth Psychology in Zürich, she taught for many years in the graduate department at California State University, Los Angeles, and was a dream researcher at UCSD Medical Center on "Dreams of the Dying."   She hosts a non-profit project under Earthways.com, The Center for Alchemical Studies.  Podcasts with Monika on various topics can be found at Shrinkrapradio.com and SpeakingofJung.com.
