And when you're starving or dancing all night, as I did in those days, it's amazing how much light you can bring into the cells of your body. Petty: You used to dance all night? Woodman: I taught in northern Ontario for awhile. Where I lived the real dancers didn't get going until about one in the morning. Petty: You went to discos? Woodman: No, no. Ballroom and square dancing—grand square dancing. During the winter there was nothing else to do but dance at night. Three nights of the week  I danced from nine at night till 5 a. m. —and loved it. Weight fell off me. But I was addicted to that sense of euphoria. I still love dancing. Petty: But since you're not anorexic anymore, and you don't dance the nights away, you must find that euphoria in a different way. Woodman: Yes. But I don't think it's euphoria I'm looking for now. Euphoria is false. The high that comes from being anorexic, the weightless feeling that came from  dancing and not eating, was a false euphoria. It was a death trip. Happy as I was on my way to suicide, it wasn't real at all. It was a straight betrayal of life. Now my  journey is to the reality of the light—God as embodied consciousness. My whole desire then was to escape, now it's to go deeper and deeper into life. Peay: We hear so many psychospiritual phrases these days. What does "embodied consciousness" mean? Are you talking about a state of consciousness that is  different from the transcendent state experienced in meditation? Woodman: I think God is that too. "Embodied consciousness" is my own phrase, reached through fifteen years of hard work. I had to come to God the other way  round. I had to go through the body to find the Goddess. To me the feminine side of God is consciousness in matter. The wisdom in the body; the light in the cells; the  subtle body. For me, that subtle body within my physical body is the receiver that can receive that transcendent experience of the divine. Before my experience in  India I had no subtle body to receive the spirit; I was not conscious below the neck. Peay: All your books deal in one way or another with eating disorders. Was it your own personal experience with anorexia that led you to write on that subject? Page 115 Woodman: Of course. Peay: You were one of the first Jungians to write about eating disorders. Is that correct? Woodman: Yes, I was one of the first. I did it because I had to. In Zürich I wrote my thesis on Emily Dickinson, who was also obsessed with light. When I finished I  had a dream saying, "Now you can start your thesis. " Because I still had not dealt with my own shadow. I took that dream very seriously, and wrote another thesis on  binging and anorexia. That turned out to be The Owl Was a Baker's Daughter. Peay: There was quite a response to that book. Woodman: Yes there was. And that was just the tip of the iceberg compared to what I know about it now. Peay: Your books are written within an obvious Jungian context. How has the Jungian psychological point of view added to our understanding of eating disorders?
