Holding the Tension of the Opposites

by Marion Woodman

Title Details

Audio Original


Life's great challenge, Marion Woodman says on Holding the Tension of the Opposites, is in developing an integration between the spirit and the body. From this integration there arises a divine "tension," allowing for a new consciousness to unfold. Why is this integration so difficult? Woodman shows how the Judeo-Christian tradition has split spirit from matter at the expense of what Jung described as our "shadow" side. How this shadow side is historically connected to goddess worship (the Latin word for "mother" is mater, the root word for "matter") is just one of the insights that Woodman offers on this unique, live presentation. "Night is as precious as day," she says. By uniting both sides of the unconscious, we attune to those around us and to the energy within the earth itself.
