Psychotherapist Bárbara Godoy has lead therapeutic groups around the world since 1997. The question about the meaning of being woman was the focus of her post-graduate research completed in 2005. Women’s Groups: “Four Seasons” and “Nine Muses” are the synthesis of the last 13 years of practice and ongoing research.
Women’s Group is an exploration of our assumptions about the meaning of being women through awareness intensive practices such as: story telling, communication skills, family constellation, dynamic meditation, deep relaxation, bio-energetics, psychodrama, authentic movement, catharsis (emotional release), touch, feedback and sharing.

Nine Muses Team
Caroline Liljeström von Zweigbergk, movement artist & therapist.
Caroline Liljeström von Zweigbergk is a movement artist and a therapist. Through a dance form called Eurythmy she will take you on a journey of how a deepened listening to the heart and the life stream that continually runs through our body can refine our awareness of timing and flow through movement. In Eurythmy we use the body as an extended organ of perception. With poetry and music we express what lives in the soul via movement.
Gabriella Ricciardi-Otty, Psychotherapist, Writer, Actress, Striptease Artiste.
Gabriella is a graduate of the MA course in Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology at Regents College. She is currently developing her MA dissertation – Where Angels Fear to Tread – into a book, inspired by her experience as a student, performer and observer of the art of striptease. Gabriella uses self-disclosure in every aspect of her work to create an opportunity for participants to acknowledge the centrality of their bodily experience in the context of their lives. Through a mixture of warm-ups and exercises inspired by physical acting training, dance, and striptease, she invites participants to approach the relationship with their body and sexuality in a more creative way. Gabriella’s ultimate aim is to create a space that is safe, respectful and judgement-free for each individual to discover, or rediscover, the transformative, life-affirming power of pleasure and Eros in their lives.

The woman and the river
The river dried off, right under my feet. The last brook of water steamed away between my toes. I had managed to retrieve a full bucket with a straw, careful not to let it touch my lips.
