Embodiment, Soul and Creative Practice Workshop

Presenter: Dr Maya Ward


After all, the essential thing is not the shadow but the body which casts it. CG Jung – CW 16: p. 64

Join us to explore the body’s role in creative processes. Learn how to access our body’s poetic ‘soul voice’ through body awareness and movement practices. There is growing understanding of the role of movement in enabling enhanced intelligence, supporting mental health and opening access to our creative depths.

The archetypes can be experienced within us via the physical: we will be moving, writing, and practicing methods of deep relaxation and meditation, aiming to meet and dialogue with the archetypal aspects of soul via a variety of modalities. This will be a safe, supportive journey toward the deep well of creativity dwelling in us all.

Dr Maya Ward teaches dance and creative writing, usually separately, but occasionally together. She is passionately interested in how movement practices and the rich legacy of knowledge championed by Jung, can support cultural change towards sustainability, creativity and innovative thinking.
