Marion Woodman Month | What Soul Tells the Body: Woodman’s Discovery with Tina Stromsted


This month, Jung in the World is presenting a weekly series on Marion Woodman, Canadian mythopoetic author, poet, Jungian Analyst, and women’s movement figure.

In this episode, Patricia Martin interviews Tina Stromsted PhD, who was a student of Marion Woodman’s somatic therapy work. Over the years of studying and collaborating with Marion, the two became friends and colleagues. In this interview, Tina opens up about what it was like to work with Marion Woodman, offering rare insight into the practices Woodman developed to help people achieve wholeness, body and soul. 

Unfortunately, there was an issue with the video recording so we are not able to share the video of this interview.
