Tina Stromsted, Ph.D., MFT, LPCC, BC-DMT, RSME/T 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, soul, nature & community.

Dreamdancing®, developed by Dr. Stromsted in the 1980’s, integrates verbal dream sharing with embodied methods such as Authentic Movement, structured movement explorations, Formative psychology, 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 workshops, week-long intensives, workshops, and consultation. Topics include:

  • Authentic Movement as a pathway to transformation
  • Embodied Alchemy
  • Dream Dancing
  • Active Imagination
  • Creative Arts Therapy
  • Body Soul Work & the Dance of Three
  • Witnessing Practice: Developing Embodied Presence

  • Transforming the Creative Shadow
  • The Dreaming Body
  • Embodied Wisdom: Jung, Neuroscience and Authentic Movement
  • Dancing our Spirit Animals
  • Birthing the Moment: 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, compassionate, and increasingly conscious way.

Health Care Providers gain access to embodied resources, enhanced self-care, & intuitive and creative avenues for addressing health care challenges.

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

Educators may replenish by returning to the wisdom of the body as our original text - as the senses provide pathways to knowledge, and engage a variety of leaning styles.

Those who seek will have an opportunity to embody questions of the spirit, openness to the unknown, and appreciation for the life's sacred dimension.

Social Activists can explore the roots of their own biases - beneath words - engaging an embodied sense of freedom, empowerment, agency, and compassion in themselves and in others.  Finding their voice and building connection between individuals, groups, and communities to help create awareness and influence social change.  

Eco-Activists may experience their bodies as a microcosm of the macrocosm of the Earth’s body – a vital, sacred source. Awakening ecological consciousness toward a more sustainable lifestyle in harmony with nature, while furthering education and social action to champion the environment.
