Tina Stromsted, Ph.D., MFT, BC-DMT is a Jungian Analyst, licensed psychotherapist, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist, and Somatics Educator. With forty years of clinical experience, she offers Somatic psychotherapy, Jungian analysis, private groups, international workshops, and consultation. Her numerous articles and book chapters explore the integration of body, brain, psyche and soul in healing and transformation.

Dr. Stromsted is the developer and founder of Soul’s Body® Center, providing a unique integration of Jungian Depth Psychology and embodied practices including Authentic Movement, Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Work®, Somatics, the Creative Arts Therapies and other conscious practices that engage body, brain, psyche, and soul.

Dreamdancing®, developed by Dr. Stromsted in the 1980’s, integrates verbal dream sharing with embodied methods such as Authentic Movement, structured movement explorations, somatic awareness, vocal work, drawing and writing. These practices engage the energies, feelings and action of the dream to help bring the dream’s message to consciousness through lived experience.


Programs involve ongoing groups, week-long intensives, workshops, and consultation. Topics include:
– Authentic Movement as a pathway to transformation
– Embodied Alchemy
– Healing trauma through movement
– Marion Woodman and the Embodied Soul
– The Living Body in Analysis
– Jung Embodied
– Seeking the Creative Shadow
– The Dreaming Body
– Embodied Wisdom: Jung, Neuroscience and Authentic Movement
– Dancing our Spirit Animals
– Birthing the Moment: Self-Initiation and Creativity in the Therapeutic Process

Who Can Benefit:

Therapists will have an opportunity to gain an embodied understanding of the somatic intricacies in the therapeutic relationship, enhancing their ability to be present in a more vital, increasingly conscious way.

Artists will have an opportunity to move through old patterns, and to reconnect with the lifeblood of their own aesthetic impulse.

Educators may replenish by returning to the wisdom of the body, as our original text.

Those who seek will have an opportunity to embody questions of the spirit.

Upcoming Programs:

Embodied Alchemy: Awakening Spirit in Body – An International Authentic Movement Retreat for Men & Women- In this 5-day retreat we will engage the work of Alchemy in relation to bodily experience in the process of healing and change through moving and witnessing practice, integrating theory, embodied experience, drawing and writing. (June 27, 2015- July 3, 2015)
