A Haven for Seekers
Transformational Teachings and Creative Embodiment
in the Jungian Mystical Christian Tradition
Spiritual Direction • Dream Work
If you are seeking a place:
- To learn practices, develop skills, and gain confidence to companion others through Spiritual Direction or Dream Work
- That is a welcoming community focused on connection with God, the Holy, the numinous, and the Divine Wisdom within
- To learn and integrate the principles of Jungian psychology
- For developing or reawakening creative energy through poetry, movement, collage, painting, or other expressions
- To have deeper conversations about inner life experiences, meaning and purpose, mystery and the Divine so that day-to-day life and relationships are more wholehearted and authentic
You have found it! This is what the Haden Institute is all about.
Haden’s learning experience is unique. It is a braid of lectures, reading assignments, and practice sessions to inform and stretch the intellect; contemplative practices, creative expression, embodiment practices, and ritual to expand intuition and creativity. The most important thing we teach is that spiritual maturity and psychological individuation come through deep inner work. We learn to do this work ourselves so that we can accompany others as they do this same sacred soul work. Our goal is for each person touched by the psycho-spiritual teachings we offer to take their transformation into the world, bringing greater compassion, health, and wholeness to larger communities.
There are no prerequisites for the training courses or the Conference. If you have an attraction or a curiosity, we invite you to join us in the offering that best fits your interests.

The Haden Institute has always been known for the quality of our teachers. We continue to deepen and enrich our offerings by welcoming these new faculty. I am grateful they each said, “yes.”
We are pleased to announce that all current students, as well as those who have graduated within the past three years can now earn a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min) degree in two areas at the Haden Institute through our new partnership with the Graduate Theological Foundation (GTF). The D.Min program is open to both clergy and lay people.
