Certificate in Depth Practices

A 10 Month Apprenticeship Program

After years of accompanying and teaching from a depth perspective and engaging in depth practices, I have decided to offer an apprenticeship in the depth practices that I use in my work.  


This is a certificate program for therapists, healers, artists, coaches, consultants, and anyone who wants to use these practices in their own daily lives and in their work. 


Walking in close community in a small cohort, participants will gain both theoretical knowledge and practical experience engaging in depth practices in their own lives, with others they are serving, and in their own creative work.  

Participants will receive a certificate in depth practices upon completion of the program.

"I'd had many friends participate in Vanya's programs, and when it came time to shape my own degree, I knew I wanted to learn from her. Vanya created a customized course for me that had the academic vigor required for my doctoral program as well as the soul required for deep and meaningful integration. I loved every moment of exploration and conversation with Vanya and I look forward to learning from her again soon!"

Weekly Gatherings

These 90 minute weekly live gatherings (virtual) include teaching, discussion, practice, and reflection.  They are an opportunity to not only gather around ideas and practices, they are also an opportunity to gather in sacred circle   in loving witness of each person's experiences with these ideas, practices and ways of being.  


Monthly Private Sessions

During these private 60 minute monthly sessions we have the opportunity to deepen into the content and engage in the practices we are learning (like dream work, active imagination, and story).  They are also an opportunity for you to do your own soul tending as you deepen into the mythic and soul dimensions of your life.  For more on soul tending click here. 


Customized Teaching & Readings

In addition to the weekly gatherings and private sessions, you will also receive customized teachings and reading resources that follow your own curiosity.  These could include more on archetypal theory, ritual, synchronicity, ecopsychology, and much more. 


Private Online Forum

Each cohort has a private online forum so we can stay in touch during the week as we each practice and unpack what we are learning.  There is so much beauty and strength in being witnessed and knowing we are not alone. 


Discounted Extra Private Sessions

You will receive a 10% discounted rate for any extra (optional) private sessions  during the 10 month apprenticeship. 


10% Discount to All Community Events

While you are in the 10 month apprenticeship, you will receive a 10% discount to any community events during that time.  These may include all day workshops and solstice and equinox rituals. 

“I can't say enough about the privilege of working with Vanya (it's a privilege, but also feels vital to my existence). Vanya's gift in communication and teaching along with her depth of heart and wisdom has opened up places in my soul that have been dormant for I'm afraid to think of how long. She creates a safe, inviting, thoughtful space that allows me to choose how deep I want to go and how much I want to look at. You can tell she has done her own personal work as well as incredible amounts of study. She is a continual learner and generously offers wisdom from the deep.  I can't imagine anyone not being blessed by meeting and working with Vanya!”
