Description

The Divine Feminine: Seeding New Myths for our Times

Would a greater valuation of the divine feminine, in all her guises, contribute toward a healing of our ‘ailing myth’? In responding to such a question we explore what it means to have a greater level of embodiment in an ensouled world. With this sensibility our three speakers and workshop leaders, all pioneers and diviners of where our old myths have led us, consider the possibility of a re-patterning and a new mythos.



Three Guest Speakers:

Mary, Veronica, Marian


Mary Condren, ThD, is a lecturer at the Centre for Gender and Women’s Studies in Trinity College Dublin and is author of The Serpent and the Goddess: Women, Religion and Power in Celtic Ireland (1989). Her interdisciplinary work concerns the interface between worldviews and gender, with a specific focus on worldviews that promote violence. Mary’s research draws on mythology, political psychology, theology, psychoanalytic, philosophical and feminist theories. She is director of Woman Spirit Ireland, and has organised and resourced Festivals of Brigit (in Ireland and abroad) for over twenty five years.

Veronica Goodchild, PhD, has practiced as a Jungian psychotherapist for over 30 years, and is author of Eros and Chaos (2001) and Songlines of the Soul (2012). Veronica served as Core Faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute, where she taught Jungian and Imaginal Psychology, Depth Psychology and Alchemy, The Grail Myth, Depth Psychology and the Sacred, Jungian Psychology and Quantum Physics, Dreams, Soulful Research and Clinical Case Colloquia. Veronica retired from full-time teaching in 2015, and is now Professor Emerita, continuing her research and writing.

Marian Dunlea, MSc, is a Jungian analyst and a Somatic Experiencing Trauma therapist. She is the creator of Bodydreaming™ , an innovative approach to therapy that integrates somatic perspectives with Jungian Psychology. She is Director and Trainer for BodySoul Europe, part of the Marion Woodman Foundation and is a core faculty member of the Marion Woodman Foundation. She facilitates workshops internationally and is awaiting the publication of her book BodyDreaming in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: an Embodied Therapeutic Approach with Routledge in May 2019.
