Residential Trainings with Dr. Estés



Through her Institute for Archetypal and Cross-Cultural studies, Dr. Estés leads several residential trainings for mid-career professionals and other interested persons each year in Loveland, Colorado. Continuing Education hours are available for fulfilling your professional requirements. Registration for these events takes place through this site. Available spots in upcoming trainings are announced via email to Dr. Estés' email list and generally fill within days or weeks of opening. 

The mission of our trainings is to hold the door open to new life in the undivided interior world. To uphold love, creativity, and the interior work needed to transform oneself. We do this through teaching the mediating of negative complexes and removing introjects (false ideas implanted in the psyche via childhood trauma, generational wounds, relational challenges, and overcultural harshness).

Our aim is to teach learners to thereby walk more surely in one’s own most peaceful, creative environs. Another way of saying—being able to walk naturally in two worlds—the mundane world “out there” and the sacred refuge of the life of the Soul. Teaching ways of balanced attitudes towards oneself and others helps each person to recognize and adhere to the exact center within: Love, solid differentiation, and discernment, honor and creativity.

In this work learners are expected to self examine and self purify, setting aside ego and leading with Soul, who is ever the most gifted and visionary aspect of the psyche.
