January 21-24 is the first weekend intensive for the Dream Tending 2015 Certificate Program. 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.

Beginning on January 29- February 4 Dr. Susan Rowland will be presenting Shakespeare in Depth: A Four-Week Online and Weekend Workshop.
This is a unique opportunity to explore Shakespeare in the context of depth psychology, archetype, myth, and self-exploration. Susan Rowland, a member of Pacifica’s core faculty, will guide a small group of online learners through a week-by-week syllabus that includes downloadable lectures, photographs, readings, key websites, and small discussion groups. All lectures and discussions will be taught and facilitated by Professor Rowland, who has published widely on depth psychology and the arts, including works on Shakespeare and archetypes.
Four plays will be studied in relation to dreams, explorations of the psyche, magic, and self-transformation through the use of guided reading, active imagination, creative writing, cultural context, and experimental performance in Pacifica’s beautiful gardens. No prior study of Shakespeare or performance experience is necessary. Everything will be gentle and hospitable to the delicate spirit of the imagination.
