Dream Tending Certification 2015
PACIFICA GRADUATE INSTITUTE PRESENTS
Dream Tending 2015 Certificate Program
A Limited Enrollment Intensive
with Dr. Stephen Aizenstat
The 2015 Dream Tending Certificate Program is a limited-enrollment intensive that will take place over four, four-day sessions at Pacifica Graduate Institute’s Ladera Lane Campus in Santa Barbara. Participants must have previous Dream Tending experience. Those who successfully complete the program and review process will become Certified Practitioners of Dream Tending, and will be authorized to promote the certification and utilize Dream Tending in their respective practices. The intensive will reflect the multiple dimensions of psychic life and the dream, exploring dream theory and methodology through academic and experiential avenues. 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.
