Workshops with Lena Måndotter, Sweden

”When the soul wishes to experience something:
she throws an image of that experience out before her,
and then - she enters into her own image.”

Workshops in Sweden 2018
Saturday 17 February – Sunday 18 February: THE SONG OF THE SOUL (two day workshop)
Saturday 7 – Sunday 8 April: THE HEALING POWER OF WORD & VOICE (two day workshop)
Saturday 26 May – Sunday 27 May: THE HEALING POWER OF DREAMS (two day workshop)
Friday 24 August – Sunday 26 August: THE SONG OF THE SOUL (three day workshop)

Lena Måndotter offers educational and experiential programs in the psychological aspects of voice and singing. The courses give an opportunity to explore the Psyche through vocal expression, combining various expressive and creative techniques using voice, breath and movement.

The focus is on releasing the voice from physical and psychological inhibitions so one can express oneself freely with presence and confidence, in song and in speech.

The song workshops are for anyone who is interested in connecting to and reclaiming one’s own authentic voice. Participants come from many different professional fields and they have all kinds of backgrounds.

No previous experience in singing is required of the participants but a certain interest in psychology can be useful since we can not free our voices without contacting our emotions.

These songcourses offer an inspirational journey through the artistic, therapeutic and transpersonal dimensions of song, music and sound.

The programs are of varying lengths and include the following themes:

Teacher:

Lena Måndotter, singer with a diploma in Voice Movement Therapy (Royal Society of Arts/London under the leadership of founder Paul Newham). She is a registered professional practitioner/member of the International Association of Voice Movement Therapy.

Lena has studied analytical psychology at the CG Jung Institut in Zürich and at ISAP – International School of Analytical Psychology in Zürich. She has also studied with internationally known Jungian psychoanalysts Marion Woodman and Mario Jacoby.

Besides her song work; Lena also works as a photographer, film maker and writer. www.lenamandotter.com

Other teachers and writers who inspires her work are Marie Louise von Franz, Shaun McNiff, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Deena Metzger, Russel Lockhart, James Hillman, Alice Miller, Linda Shierse Leonard and Robert Romanyshyn.

”The real teachers on the human journey are life and death itself and the sacred helpers from the archetypal worlds. We grow in wisdom from the journeys we dare to make along the exterior and interior horizons of the psyche – through light and through darkness. And mostly I honour the wise animals who still surround us on this earth. A deeply transforming voyage in my life was the one to the sacred mountain of Kailash, in Transhimalaya in Tibet. A journey beyond words.” LM

Lena Måndotter has given workshops and individual sessions since 1990 and she has taught at many organisations, companies, schools and universities: The Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, the University of Malmö, The CG Jung Stiftelsen Sweden, The Swedish Writers’ organisation in Malmö, MEDIS Medborgarinstitutet Åland, Sensus Study Organisation Sweden and many more.

Her film about song and psyche: ”LETTERS TO A YOUNG SINGER” had it’s premier at one of Swedens most known filmfestivals and has been screened at many venues and seminars/conference venuse, and received great support from, among many, Jungian analyst Marion Woodman.
