Within our society we often accept only the surface appearance of things and we miss the deeper source of what is occurring sometimes at great personal, psychic and emotional costs. Dive deep, deep to the “marrow of the bone where new life is,” with Marion Woodman, the internationally known Jungian analyst, teacher and lecturer. In this dialogue Woodman shares her story of “dying into life” through cancer, how it changed her life, bringing wholeness and allowing soul to emerge. “My body certainly knew what it wanted to do in order to get well. I would just listen. . . and tell it how much I loved it. . . it did have it’s own wisdom.” These quiet years allowed Woodman to delve deeper into her “bones” and gain insight into concepts of co-dependence, life transitions, addiction, spiritual practice, and surrendering. “I no longer waste my time with people who are into judgement and blame . . their game is power and my game is love.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
