Summer Dream & Spirituality Conference
May 29-June 3, 2024

Bob Haden founded the Haden Institute in 1994, as a forum to educate others about the transformational gifts of spirituality and Jungian psychology. Bob, both an Episcopal priest and a Jungian-oriented therapist, had discovered that spirituality and Jungian psychology teachings are complementary on the transformational path to health, wholeness, spiritual maturity, and individuation.  In 2017, Allen Proctor, a Presbyterian minister and life-long student of psychological development, assumed the role of Director and continues to bring psycho-spiritual teachings and practices to others.
