Pacifica Graduate Institute Alumni Association (PGIAA) is excited to announce “Grace, Grit, and Gratitude” a Gala Celebration honoring Dr. Stephen Aizenstat, Founder and Chancellor Emeritus of Pacifica Graduate Institute, on October 8th. As the founding President of Pacifica Graduate Institute Dr. Aizenstat has devoted his life to expanding the field of Depth Psychology. The study focuses on dreams, images, and interpersonal engagements to understand the language and the dynamics of the unconscious as it manifests in the conscious mind.
October 3rd, 2022 from 11 AM - 12 PM PST
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.
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.
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.
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.
Meet Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D.
Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D., has devoted his life to understanding the profound wisdom and elemental power that exists within each of us. Through our dreams and imagination, we can access limitless creativity and innovation, improved relationships, and ultimately our human potential.
Professor Aizenstat’s Dream
Tending dreams and tending deep imagination will allow thousands of people to unlock their creative potential, increase emotional and intellectual bandwidth, and realize personal and professional goals.
What Is Dream Tending?
Activate dreams and imagination to unleash your innate genius, express creativity, and contribute to the world around you through a new and dynamic perspective.
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.
