BodyDreaming Module 7, Oct 13-15 2023

The BodyDreaming training journey continues with Module 7. (Note that it is possible to join the training at any point.)

Marian Dunlea with Patricia Llosa, Pauline Sayhi & Abigail Whyte

Module 7 invites us to consider the numinous, and how this unique experience presents itself in our lives. In this module, we will bring more attention to our dreams, inner dialogues and outer explorations using active imagination. 


Exploring the Numinous In these next three modules of the BodyDreaming Training, we will explore how to approach the numinous. As in St. Exupery’s “The Little Prince” (“Le Petit Prince”), in order to receive the encounter with the numinous, we must first be “tamed”, or receptive. Our approach is therefore to proceed by building trust and creating ritual.
