Marion is a writer, international teacher, work- shop leader, and Jungian analyst. With over half a million books in print, she is one of the most widely read authors on analytical and feminine psychology of our time. She is a graduate of the C. G. Jung Institute of Zurich.
In this film, “Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames”, Marion describes the ‘split’ she has felt since childhood; a dance between two opposites that created the foundation of her life’s work. Powerful, insightful, provocative, “Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames” explores the inspiring life and many ‘deaths’ of one of the western world’s most important wisdom keepers, and sends a clarion call to a planet in the midst of “a shedding of its outworn skin”. Marion is celebrated for her work on feminine psychology and addiction, but her words and her wisdom speak to nearly everyone.
Marion says, “Kali, the goddess of life and death, of creation and destruction, is the most revered Hindu goddess, beloved in India. But our country hasn’t dealt with Kali at all because we don’t like to think that death is part of life even though we’ve just finished with winter! I mean, if we gave any thought to it at all, we’d know that death leads to new life. I think we have to learn to accept mystery, to accept that the Divine is mysterious and that if we think we know everything, we are grossly deceived.”
