Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate I Program with Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D.

October 10-12, 2022 - June 26-28, 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 module 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, nuanced intuiting, and the art of not-knowing. Space is limited for this special event and you will not want to miss this experience!

This 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. As part of this new cohort, you will journey into the universe of the dreamtime.

Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate III Program with Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D.

2022 Schedule Coming Soon

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.

“What Steve is doing is turning to the images in the dreams for their own sake, to see what they want to say, why they came, and what they can do for reviving the imagination.”
