Eleni Levidi, M.S., BC-DMT, LPC
Eleni practices privately in Boulder as board certified dance-movement therapist and licensed professional counselor, holds a Master of Science in Dance-Movement Therapy, and studies at the C. G. Jung Institute of Colorado. Since a very early age, attention to dreams and spontaneous movement drew her to believe in the healing power of both. With a dual degree in Psychology and Dance while studying graduate Special Education and Counseling in the 80’s, she pioneered dance-movement therapy in her native Greece. Eleni taught as clinical mentor and group process leader at Naropa University’s Somatic Psychology Department, and faculty in Performing Arts. Having worked with diverse populations, ages and settings for almost three decades, she has also held certifications in group psychotherapy and geriatrics consultation. Her interests and studies in Jungian psychology, shamanism, esoteric traditions and subtle energies, and her respect for Body Wisdom as healer and aspect of the archetypal Feminine, converge in her Authentic Movement expertise. She incorporates this discipline in her psychotherapeutic practice, groups, and workshops she offers privately and in venues such as the Laban Centre in London, the Isadora Duncan Centre in Athens, the C. G. Jung Society of Colorado Springs and others. Eleni directs a four-year training program in Authentic Movement.

Janet has had a deep lifelong connection with Stonehenge, and the Grail Myths that are woven into the geometric design of this ancient sacred circle. In her spiritual practice, she works within the mystical Grail Castle: the alchemical crucible at the Heart Centre of Stonehenge, to reconnect and communicate with the Self. Her artwork has provided a platform for the archetypal characters of Parcival and Blanchfleur to play out their inner quest for us upon a mandala, and to celebrate their sacred reunion in a sculpture of the Grail: The Philosopher’s Stone.
Michael has a BS degree in Public Administration with major in Health Services Administration from the University of Arizona. He spent three years as director of a residential Buddhist meditation center in Los Angeles. Complimenting his Buddhist practice is a strong layman’s interest in the psychology of Jung and in the process of Individuation. Michael’s goal is simply to help sustain the truly amazing Boulder Friends of Jung program.
Rick Taylor studied religion and psychology at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania. His journey has been partly that of trying to integrate the two in his life. Traditional religion and orthodox psychology both left him cold. In Jungian psychology, however, he found a language that resonated with his soul. Rick and his wife, Janet, recently relocated to Estes Park from the Houston area where, since 1997, he attended regular classes under Jungian teacher, James Hollis. He was an active participant in many programs sponsored by the C.G. Jung Education Center in Houston, served as a member of their curriculum committee, and helped start a new community of folks interested in Jung’s ideas in his hometown.
