The Core Curriculum Training in the Personal Totem Pole Process takes place over 3 years. After completion of the third year, trainees will receive certification from the IIVR (International Institute of Visualization Research) acknowledging their success in completing the training as an imagery practitioner. The trainee is then certified to guide individuals in Deep Imagery journeys through the Personal Totem Pole Process.
To complete the training, you are required to engage fully in deep imagery experiences with a consistent group during a three year process. You must fully commit to your own process with the deep imagination for those 3 years. To enable that process in the online training you must agree to:
- Attend all group sessions (12 per year).
- Commit regular time to work with members of your cohort, to both journey and guide .
If you miss a group session, then you need to catchup up on what you have missed. With the agreement of your trainer, it is possible to substitute individual sessions with the trainer and/or view the recording of the group session online to assist you in catching up. It depends on what you missed. This option is allowed only twice per year. That is, you can only miss 2 group sessions each year.
The training will take place with a minimum number of 5 participants. In case the minimum number is not met, the advance payment will be refunded in full. The maximum number of participants is 12.
