Practitioners in Dreaming and Imagery become certified to:
- Form and lead dream groups
- Form and lead imagery classes and workshops
- Use dreaming and imagery in individual work with clients
- Develop practices using dreaming and imagery
The certification is aimed at those who have an existing professional practice working with others such as therapists, coaches, somatic practitioners, and other professionals, and professionals in the arts. The certification process is a deeper learning experience for you as an individual practitioner in your own development, as well as in application to your specific field of practice.
The classes listed in the curriculum are minimum requirements. As each student moves at their own pace, the Institute reserves the right to ask a student to include more classes or individual sessions if there is a need for further learning.
Rather than one large payment, the certification program is paid on a semester basis for the classes/sessions taken. The Institute maintains a record of each student’s class work. Thus, this certification can be entered into at any time in a student’s learning path.
If you would like to apply, or have a question about your experience and its applicability to the certification, and how it can be applied to your work, please email us.

* Before being certified, students are also required to have individual sessions with a certified practitioner. The minimum number of sessions required is 20; overall, the number of sessions needed is determined by the student’s movement through the work. Before one can become a practitioner helping others one must first clear oneself. All work through the Institute provides opportunities for the student to do this self-work; individual sessions offer private moments and exercises to address specific, individual needs of the student. Special emphasis is placed on inner child imagery work.
** Capstone work is determined through student and lead practitioner. This might be the development of a practice, a workshop, a set of imagery exercises to be delivered in a class, etc. The aim of the Capstone is to show that the student has learned the work and integrated it into their own experience, and is able to apply it in a setting that is of interest to them.
*** Before being certified the progress of the student as a practitioner is evaluated, and some semesters may need to be added. The number of semesters and individual sessions indicated here are the minimum requirements and therefore the costs indicated are an estimate.
