|ARAS - Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism
Drawing upon Carl Jung's work on the archetype and the collective unconscious, the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism (ARAS) is a pictorial and written archive of mythological, ritualistic, and symbolic images from all over the world and from all epochs of human history. The collection probes the universality of archetypal themes and provides a testament to the deep and abiding connections that unite the disparate factions of the human family. Now online, the archive is fully searchable and accessible from all over the world.
Our programs, which are held in the United States and Assisi, Italy, examine the influence and presence of archetypal processes in the individual and collective psyche, the therapeutic situation and in other areas of the natural world, and the relationship between Jungian Psychology and the "new sciences".

Marion Woodman Foundation
The Marion Woodman Foundation is a non-profit organization founded to ensure the work initiated in BodySoul Rhythms Intensives, created by Marion Woodman, Mary Hamilton, and Ann Skinner, continues and flourishes.

The unique integration incorporates working with dreams and imagery together with body and voice in a powerful way while honoring the uniqueness of each individual.
The roots of this work grow out of a deep respect for dreams, C.G. Jung's understanding of the psyche, the great wisdom of the body, and Marion Woodman's passionate commitment to articulating the sacred Feminine and the embodied Soul.
