About The Haden Institute  
Founded in 1994

Bob Haden founded the Haden Institute in 1994, as a forum to educate others about the transformational gifts of spirituality and Jungian psychology. Bob, both an Episcopal priest and a Jungian-oriented therapist, had discovered that spirituality and Jungian psychology teachings are complementary on the transformational path to health, wholeness, spiritual maturity, and individuation.  In 2017, Allen Proctor, a Presbyterian minister and life-long student of psychological development, assumed the role of Director and is continuing to bring psycho-spiritual teachings and practices to others.

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.

The Advanced Training courses offer our graduates ways to continue their training in specialized topics presented by familiar faculty members.

 

The Summer Dream and Spirituality Conference is an annual opportunity for spiritual seekers and dream workers to gather in the beauty of Western North Carolina, learn from key-note speakers and workshop presenters, and participate in dream groups facilitated by the Haden Institute staff.
