Sitting by the Well

On Feminine Consciousness – Jungian view

Category:

Description

By Marion Woodman

One symbol, perhaps above all others, holds a crucial significance for everyone in search of wholeness: the well. From the terrestrial world it leads down into darkness, to the treasure of pure feminine consciousness. We are each blessed with our own well, and from this source of salvation and eternal life, teaches Marion Woodman, we must “drink or die”.

In Sitting by the Well, this acclaimed Jungian analyst and author uses dreams, symbols, and body imagery to reach into the shadows of the unconscious mind and cast light on our everyday lives. Here is a poetic culmination of Woodman’s many years of work with the psychological impact of patriarchy on men’s and women’s lives – from distorted body image and addiction to sexual trauma and relationships to our ultimate connection with the Great Mother (matter) and Great Father (spirit).

Rare Lectures Collected for the First Time

On six archival recordings – each one digitally remastered for maximum clarity and comprehension – Marion Woodman unravels Carl Jung’s core teachings about archetypes and the unconscious and analyzes how dreams and metaphors provide powerful healing tools for the psyche. You will hear the evolution of Woodman’s theories throughout the past decade while vividly sharing her insights into what we each must do to open to spirit and find meaning in our suffering. For all of us interested in what Woodman calls “the language of our instincts”, Sitting by the Well is a one-of-a-kind guide for learning it.

In her practice, Woodman has encountered many people who feel lost and out of touch with their bodies and their spirits. Where is the energy and imagery we need for nourishment? Join Marion Woodman and find your way to a wellspring for deeper guidance with Sitting by the Well.
