After seven years of offering Embodying Conscious Femininity Workshops to many courageous and beloved women, we took the time and the space in this past year to hibernate with and to reflect on what the next step might be. During this time we PAUSED and WAITED and LISTENED.

We have learned so much from each of you. We have grown and softened with you. We have been pushed by you and this too has made us stronger. We have been afraid with you. And you have helped to create our safe container. We have given of ourselves, but then have received more than we knew possible.

We knew how easily we could be pulled to keep moving forward. Hard work is a default button for us both. Our year of reflection has taught us how important it is to slowly savor the simplest of moments we are offered, both the rich and the difficult. We may even discover a new default mode.

We have concluded that for us, the ECF journey is complete. We are healthy, we are discovering new depths of our friendship and yet, we also sense the grief and pain of our collective loss. This is the tension of the opposites. This is a loss for us all. And it is a necessary loss.

We have been honored to create this work with you. Although ECF will no longer live as an entity, it will live in our collective soul and body. We all know what we know and no one can ever take that knowing from us. Thanks be to Sophia for this wonder!!

* The renowned Jungian analyst and author Marion Woodman has written such groundbreaking books as Conscious Femininity, Addiction to Perfection and The Pregnant Virgin. She was one of the first Jungian scholars to explore and articulate the relationship of soma and psyche (body and soul), particularly in women. She collaborated with her colleagues, the dance educator Mary Hamilton and the actor and voice teacher Ann Skinner, to develop BodySoul Rhythms, a weeklong intensive format. Over the last thirty years, thousands of women throughout the world have experienced this transformational work. Linda Kawer LCSW and Sherry Wheaton MD have been mentored and trained by the collective wisdom and skill of these three women.
