I’ve shared a few excerpts from youtube from the
Dancing in the Flames. The entire film is now available on here.
(not available anymore…this is an old post…I’m going to share some clips here, however, since this post is getting traffic in Marion Woodman’s memory by those googling her. She died yesterday. July 9, 2018. Please enjoy the clips I share in her memory)
It’s well worth watching the whole thing! It can be purchased here: Dancing in the Flames
Synopsis: Dancing in the Flames is a brilliant and intimate documentary into the life of Jungian Analyst, Marion Woodman, who is known for her ground breaking work as a teacher and author on feminine psychology and addiction. We are taken into a metaphoric representation of the unconscious imagery that Marion discusses so passionately and, in doing so, are invited to examine our own lives. Brilliant mystic and author Andrew Harvey interviews Marion as she explains the mysteries of her soul’s journey and reveals a series of psychological ‘deaths’ and ‘rebirths’ that have formed the consciousness into which she has evolved. The film presents a philosophy of dynamic opposites, the bridging of seeming contradictions. Life and death, love and grief, courage and submission are not at loggerheads for her—they’re part of a harmonious whole. By embracing these opposites we come into the totality of human experience.

There is also a book by Woodman with the same title: Dancing in the Flames: The Dark Goddess in the Transformation of Consciousness
Here are other longer videos but not from the film:
