Man, Woman, Masculine, Feminine:
A Bioenergetic Workshop Exploring Love and Relationships

Workshop is Open to Individuals and Couples
February 18-19, 2017
Alachua, Florida

The interplay of the masculine and feminine represents a major challenge and opportunity of modern times. This workshop offers in-depth growth work around relationships, wounds, love patterns, and the energizing of  active responsiveness and focused personal power. We will explore the fable of ‘The Maiden King’, a quintessential tale about the masculine and feminine searching for each other, along with bioenergetics and neo-Jungian group and individual experiences. And, plenty of time for music, poetry, dancing, drumming, and joy!

This workshop will offer individuals or couples a chance to process love issues using…

  • Bioenergetics
  • Psychodrama
  • Family Constellation
  • Dyadic Experiences
  • Approaching the masculine/feminine dance via story, movement, poetry, and music
  • Truth-telling and sharing, deep living, pain and pleasure
