TENDING DREAMS, IMAGINATION, PSYCHE, SOUL
Welcome to this place of inner mysticism, enchantment, and spiritual alchemy, where imagination, dreams and creativity come alive in guided journeys sourced from deep soul wisdom.
TENDING TO THE SOUL, IN AND OF THE WORLD
Imaginal Space is a depth psychology consultancy concerned with tending the soul, or the depth beneath life's experiences.
In the tradition of Jungian and Archetypal Psychology, our creative practice is an invitation into deep interior work, where a birthing of the psyche unfolds through dream journeying, somatic embodiment, and active imagination.
Drawing on the animated intelligence of the world through a depth psychological approach, we invite you into an imaginal space of inner knowing, to connect with psyche and awaken shadowed dimensions.
Our work tends to the individual and collective unconscious, bridging a deeper relationship with soul.
TERESA M. NOWAK, PhD
Teresa is a Jungian and archetypal scholar with an emphasis in imaginal and eco-psychology. She tends the subtle, unconscious, and transpersonal aspects of experience through dreams, complexes, archetypes, and images. As a creative visionary, she is deeply attuned to the invisible threads connecting us to each other, and to the anima mundi, or the soul of the world. She is a heart-based guide and intuitive facilitator, presiding in the imaginal realm to awaken transformation for a more symbolic life.
Her teachings draw on a depth psychological viewpoint that individuals do not have full access to their experience; alongside consciousness, there is an unconscious dimension which requires a different approach to knowing and understanding the breadth of human experience. Depth psychological practice draws upon earlier indigenous philosophies that integrate the unconscious, the natural world, and the more-than-human world as forces operating synergistically to inform assumptions. This practice considers realities that extend beyond what is seen, to what is unseen and known through non-traditional, or imaginal ways of knowing.
An enlightened critical thought leader, Teresa is an imaginal psychologist with a PhD in Depth Psychology with an emphasis in Jungian and Archetypal Studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her expertise is in phenomenological research.
A life-long seeker, Teresa is an accomplished spiritual teacher and retreat facilitator. As a certified Dream Tender™ in the tradition of archetypal imagination and Dr. Stephen Aizenstat's Dream Tending™ practice, Teresa is a skilled imagination guide, adept at working with individuals and groups in the realm of the unconscious psyche, or soul.

THE DREAM IS REAL.
Let's collaborate to bring forth soul.
I'd love to hear from you.
Welcome. For as long as I can remember, I have been able to hear the stirrings of soul. Thoughts of the heart and song-lines of the universe vibrate all around us, inviting us into relationship with them. My empathic gifts and intuitive knowing guide me into a deeper realization that we are connected to a field of intelligence that patiently awaits our interest. I invite you to join me in an engaged conversation with your own beautiful imaginal space - your dreams, your memories, your imagination.
"There is nothing in the world that can compare to diving, with great consciousness, with Teresa, into the deep intelligence which our dreams represent. She is a magical, powerful, and protective guide in my dream work. She holds me close while we explore the imaginal realms, and helps me connect it all back to the real world, so I can live out the wisdom I gather there. An unforgettable experience."

"Tree is very adapt, wise, and exceptionally gifted at dream tending. She pays close attention to your dream/images, knows how to guide you through an illuminating process revealing the inner richness and depth of imaginal figures, and relates these aspects to your life in relevant and interesting ways. Yet, Tree goes beyond that. Her lovely, fun, intelligent and spiritual demeanor help make the process fun and filled with learning, and she lets you know what areas need clarifying if necessary. I would recommend Tree to anyone; her education, skills, and demeanor brighten the world in ways that are needed. Her depth psychology background is helpful as well."

"I have experienced many reoccurring dream sequences multiple times. Recently, one such dream had returned and I wrote down what I could remember. I got together with Teresa to see if we could discern some meaning from some of the elements that frequently return. Teresa set up a relaxing environment in my study and we started at the beginning of my dream. With Teresa's guidance and encouragement I opened up my heart and freed my mind. We walked through a world of creative imagination that I was not expecting. And oddly enough, it was not reflective of the source dream from which it was inspired. The images of places and structures and people I have never know, seen, or experienced previously were vivid and alive. The journey we took in my psyche was full of heart felt childhood wonder. And this coming from a person who considers himself at times to be very closed up and too analytical. My reaction to this experience of Dream Tending with Teresa was that of being on a magical journey, awakening my imagination. When I see my notes from the experience it makes me feel like a great children's book is there waiting to be coaxed out."

"I am a skeptic. But, I 'allowed' Teresa to dream tend me because I wanted to be supportive of her new venture- of being a dream tender. I had a dream that was a little bizarre to me, but otherwise, didn't have much meaning in my mind. As our session began, Teresa took me into another dimension. In our journey, Teresa helped me to explore feelings, emotions, and sentiments that were all trapped beneath the surface and wanting/needing to be unearthed and revealed. It was shocking, mesmerizing, and cathartic. I came away with a renewed outlook on my most personal and intimate relationships and my own psyche. Teresa has a real gift. Sayeth the skeptic."
