Steve (E.S.) Gallegos is the developer of the Personal Totem Pole Process of deep imagery. He travels worldwide teaching about the deep imagination and introducing people to their own inner animals.

Steve Gallegos was born the state of New Mexico in the southwestern United States in 1934. Of Native American, English and Irish descent, Steve was raised in the local Hispanic culture speaking both English and Spanish. A gifted craftsman he was involved in woodcarving, leatherwork, silverwork, and drawing and painting from an early age and greatly disliked the confinement and  regimentation of school even though he was a intellectually gifted student.

After military service, he completed his Ph.D. in Psychology at Florida State University. After fourteen years as chairman of the Psychology Deptartment in Macon, GA, Steve undertook a residency in psychotherapy in the State of Oregon and became a practicing psychotherapist. While in Oregon, Steve underwent a spiritual experience that changed him profoundly. This experience is described in The Personal Totem Pole Process (ISBN 9780944164099). He describes the experience as “spontaneously meeting the alivenesses that were rooted in my energy centers and that presented themselves primarily as animals, but they had to be approached through the knowing of the deep imagination. I realized that the teacher I had sought for my entire life was in fact deep within my imagination and had always been there.

Since then, introducing people to their own inner animals and the rediscovery of the wisdom of the imagination, has been his path in life. At present he is primarily engaged in offering workshops and in training others in the exploration of the deep imagination in the United States, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Macedonia, Portugal, and Australia.

“Have you ever been so smitten by something, that suddenly it took precedence over everything else you were doing?!  That is exactly what happened when I first experienced Deep Imagery.  As a Therapist, I knew that I needed to be trained in this ground-breaking process!”

With over 25 years of experience as a licensed clinical therapist, with expertise in individual therapy and couples’ counseling, Phyllis has learned that being in “right-relationship” with ourselves and others means listening to the wisdom of our bodies and following the truth of our hearts.

Earning a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work from Boston University and studying Family Therapy at Chicago and Boston Family Institute, Phyllis received certification in Hypnosis from Winchester Hospital, Winchester, MA.

Phyllis trained in Ireland with Dr. Eligio Stephen Gallegos, Ph.D., founder and pioneer of Deep Imagery.  Recognized by the International Institute for Visualization Research for her work with Deep Imagery, Phyllis is a certified Deep Imagery Workshop Leader and Deep Imagery Trainer.

Dianne Timberlake, MFT
December 122014

Dianne is a California licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who had the good fortune to be introduced to the imaginal guides in her own “Personal Totem Pole” more than thirty years ago in a workshop given by ES Gallegos.
That workshop set her role as a therapist and her own personal growing on a new trajectory. The animal guides she met that day have comforted her tears, quieted her fears, applauded her achievements and over the decades have expanded her sense of humor and ability to live more authentically in the present moment.
Dianne has lead workshops and trainings nationally and internationally for many years.
