Imagination & Dreams: Portals Into Psyche’s Desire

October 3rd, 2022 from 11 AM - 12 PM PST

Dreams, Imagination, and Soul

I would like to invite you to an Open House/Coffee and Tea Hour that I am hosting on October 3rd from 11 am – 12 pm PST. We are calling this social hour Dreams, Imagination, and Soul because I will be sharing my enthusiasm about the upcoming Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate I program, which is filling up quickly.

Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate I Program

October 10, 2022 - June 28, 2023

The Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate I Program is a limited-enrollment program that takes place over four separate three-day sessions. The four courses reflect the multiple dimensions of psychic life and the dream. Learning in dream theory and methodology is both content based and experiential. Much of the learning will also take place in the dimension of dream life that is sensitive to aesthetic perceiving, poetic imagining, shamanic intuiting, and the art of not-knowing.

Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate II Program

October 24, 2022 - June 7, 2023

The Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate Program II introduces the cutting edge of Dr. Stephen Aizenstat’s new work on the Imagination Matrix in relation to Dream Tending. The Certificate program includes a time of “creative incubation,” a time to imagine, innovate, and tend dreams as portals into deep imagination. The work will be deeply personal as well as community oriented.

Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate III Program

July 18, 2022 – February 8, 2023

The Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate III Program brings focus to how somatic journeying can open the doors of perception that allow increased access to realms of dream, deep imagination, and the healing arts. The confluence of somatic awareness and imaginal intelligence offers opportunities to integrate mind, body, and soul. Dr. Aizenstat has found over the many years of Dream Tending that there exists an alchemical blue fire of psyche and soma that ignites the emergence of our authentic being.

Tending Tuesdays

 

I’m excited to share with you that I am starting a weekly offering called Tending Tuesdays. Tending Tuesdays was inspired by a pull to sustain the value of what happens when we come together as a community. Each Tuesday, an email will come to you with a link to a new video on a Dream Tending or depth psychological topic in the form of current writing and research, interviews, discussions with colleagues, and clips of tending dreams.
