“Feed the Feminine workshop was inspired by my clients and friends who came to me seeking support for their health and wellbeing. It seemed that lots of women are going through the same challenges, but in different forms. Although women are more communicative than men, busy women, who are part of the “I can do it all” generation are embarrassed to admit that sometimes they struggle. We have so much pressure and juggle jobs, family, partners, households, that our own wellbeing and peace of mind gets neglected. Feed the Feminine workshop will support women collectively. There is something joyful and powerful when women gather and create a sacred space.”
Ozgur’s conscious healing journey began in the late 90’s, when she was introduced to Jungian ideas through astrology and tarot. Since then, she has been working with dreams, mandalas, symbols and active imagination techniques as a way of establishing a continuous relationship with the psyche.
She has studied astrology, psychodynamic counselling and yoga.The works of the Canadian Jungian therapist and body workshop leader Marion Woodman had a huge impact on her understanding of the body- soul relationship and on her decision to start combining yoga with her ongoing painting, dream-work and active imagination practice.
She works as a yoga teacher and as an interpreter in hospitals and health centres across London and considers both of these jobs as a natural continuation of her investigation into the mysteries of life and human condition. She is inspired to maintain an open approach and to draw upon the world’s spiritual traditions as well as from literature and from symbolic systems such as astrology, tarot and I Ching. Writings of Dominican Meister Eckhart and of Jung and Jungian writers; the letters and poems of Rilke as well as some Sufi literature by Attar and Rumi are some of the invaluable texts she refers to on regular basis for insight and understanding – and also for support in remaining genuine and inquisitive in her practice and teaching.
