Invite yourself on a Journey of Self Discovery

It is the revitalization of the human soul from within that is the real goal of [this| approach.
~ Stephen Larsen, author of The Mythic Imagination in the foreword of Animals of the Four Windows by ES Gallegos, Ph.D.


Are you seeking a way to meet your wholeness? to grow fully into who you are to be?

Working with the inner guides of your deep imagination can help you with this. Your deep imagery guides will teach you to be compassionate and tender with yourself. They offer you endless compassion on your journey. They allow you speak the things that are deep in your heart, to say the words that perhaps you have never expressed, or words you did say but were never before heard. Your inner guides become your best friends and your best teachers. They have been waiting for you to come and say hello, to walk with them, to experience their support for you. They will teach you to trust, to know the ways of your soul.

Through this work you get the opportunity to grow your relationships with them so that they become your allies and friends, your companions on the journey of your life.

As your relationships with your inner guides deepen, you will begin to trust this older and deeper knowing within you. This is a knowing that is uniquely yours, an innate wisdom that knows your own pace and supports the direction of your life path. It is a knowing based in the individual you are, and that stands in the wholeness that is yours.  You will come to trust without doubt your inner intuitive guidance.

Our Mission & Vision

Our vision and mission is to help connect people to their own deep inner wisdom by accessing the deep imagination

The International Institute for Visualization Research nourishes a body of work on spontaneous personal imagery rooted in the Personal Totem Pole Process© that encompasses the areas of education, administration, research and development, documentation and practitioner support.
It sponsors trainings and workshops worldwide as well as a bi-annual international conference “The Festival of the Animals”, the animals in question being our inner animal guides.
A 501(c)3 Non-Profit
The International Institute for Visualization Research is a 501(c) organization, an American tax- exempt, nonprofit. We are glad to receive donations from interested parties who wish to support the work. All donations are tax deductible and a receipt will be sent upon request. We use donations to support trainees as they undertake the three year training program and for website development. The scholarship committee awards a number of scholarships each year, depending on funds.
