“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
In addition to our workshops, we also offer a number of more personalized services. Our depth consulting, for example, allows for an individualized and more focused engagement specific to your psychospiritual journey. Some prefer to engage archetypal work in the company of like-minded people, so we also offer engaged individuation groups.

About Our Services
~Temenos Cohort Studios~
The Temenos Cohort Studios are cohesive groups studying or working intently with specific concepts and practices, such as dream work or soulful ecology. These groups are mostly experiential, working with core Archetypal concepts and practices, such as active imagination or Hilltending, to deepen the soulful life. The cohorts consist of no more than 12 participants (certain cohorts are smaller), and are facilitated or moderated by Temenos personnel (who will also actively participate!). Each cohort meets once a month starting in July. Registration for the cohorts will open on June 15th
Initially there will be cohorts for
- Dream Work/Imaginal Knowing
- Soulful Ecology

~Personalized Depth Consulting~
Our personalized depth consulting facilitates a dialogue with the full psyche that uncovers the primary unconscious stories of your life. By uncovering the promptings of your deeper Self, our depth consulting can help you identify, engage, and heal active and archetypal patterns in psyche and world and empower personal and societal growth, healing, and fulfillment in all areas of your life. Through various depth psychological methods, we bring unconscious and archetypal stories into conscious awareness, and become better able to navigate the often stormy waters of life. Contact us for a free introductory session to determine if personalized consulting is for you.
Hilltending is an archetypal process that gives our relationship to the earth a central role. Engaging in regular Hilltending practices brings many physiological and spiritual benefits and becomes an intentional way of life that informs our worldviews and actions in all of our affairs. All of our Hilltending services aims to support this transformation and promote psycho-spiritual wellness. In addition to our Hilltending workshops, we offer a number of personalized and group services such as guided forest immersion, Hilltending and dream work, retreats, vision quests, rites of passage in the natural world, and more.

Our services are all firmly rooted in the depth psychology of C.G. Jung and James Hillman. Archetypal theory, active imagination, individuation, personality types, dream tending, mythic narrative, and shadow work are some of the depth methods we engage. These usually include imaginal methods (such as dream work or active imagination) to access the deeper psyche (soul) and engage its self-regulating nature from a broader perspective in its own language. These and other techniques help in understanding and engaging active archetypal patterns.
Based on these qualities of Psyche, our services engage the deeper psycho-spiritual and embodied structures of being human and work with deep archetypal imagery such as experienced through active imagination, shamanic journeying, dreams, mythology, or synchronicity. Our services aim to engage these images and integrate them into a widening consciousness that provides the foundation for our health and well-being. Situated between ancient tradition and contemporary science and worldviews, our services are based on the simple premise that healing the contemporary fragmented psyche, the split between psyche and body, soul and world, allows us to find well-being and consciously participate in the full web of our existence. By working with all of the aspects of the psyche, we can consciously participate in psyche’s purpose and bring it into the world to truly improve the quality of our personal and collective health, well-being, happiness, and satisfaction.
