The Dream Work and Spiritual Direction Training programs are all two-year programs, offered through large group on-site intensives, and distance learning. Small groups enter the programs each spring and fall in North Carolina, every two years in Canada, and each small group is guided through the program by a Haden Institute mentor. The group interaction provides a support community throughout the two years. In addition to reading and writing assignments, lectures, and discussions, participants share spiritual direction case studies and lead dream groups as the teachings are put into practice. These programs provide a safe environment for each participant to develop the skills of spiritual direction and dream work, while experiencing the impact of these learnings on their own journey to greater health and wholeness.
