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

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.

Leading-edge visionaries in the field enrich this program as guest speakers, adding their unique vision to the learning experience. Join us in taking your Dream Tending to the next level of possibility.
