NYC Premiere: Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames

Sunday, October 31, 2010
4:00 PM–5:30 PM

The New York premiere of Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames, about the life and views of the Jungian analyst, followed by a conversation between Andrew Harvey and Eve Ensler on how death need not be nothingness.

Hosted by Omega Institute’s Elizabeth Lesser.
“Our planet is shedding its outworn skin,” says renowned Jungian analyst and author Marion Woodman, who believes that without death there is no birth. Perhaps best known for her groundbreaking work on feminine psychology and addiction, via such books as Addiction to Perfection, Bone: Dying into Life, and The Pregnant Virgin, Woodman is one of the West’s most important wisdom keepers. Through the use of stunning animation from Academy Award®-winning animator Faith Hubley, and with insight from esteemed author and mystic Andrew Harvey, Marion’s inner and outer lives are woven together, transmitting a core truth of what it is to be human.
Directed by Adam Greydon Reid
