Hypnosis is a natural relaxed state of mind. In hypnosis, limiting and detrimental beliefs held in the unconscious mind can be brought to consciousness; where they can be understood and transformed, or healed and released.

In this process, selective thinking and focused concentration are maintained while the gatekeeper to the unconscious mind is relaxed, allowing healing ideas and suggestions to be received and embraced.

The results can be life-altering in myriad ways, including the discovery and recovery of lost parts of one’s soul.

Dr. Ginger Swanson works with you to develop and design your own private dream retreat just for yourself, or for your small group.


If you wish to tap into your creative energy, work on deep trauma release, discover your ancestors, or support your board of directors, all and more are welcome. Soulful work is the dominant focus.


Dr. Ginger's flexible nature allows her to serve as your host, or as your facilitator and guide. Retreat guests are nourished in the beautiful 18-acre mountain setting in Santa Barbara, California. It is a place of wonder and awakening for the heart and soul.

What is Depth Psychology?

Depth psychology is concerned with the relationship between the conscious and the unconscious mind and is foundational in the therapeutic practices of both psychoanalysis and analytical psychology. Depth psychology seeks to explore that which resides "below" and "beneath" the surface of things and works to understand the root causes underlying the symptoms or dis-eases that reside in the unconscious of the individual—and the collective.

"I am a board member of a non-profit organization called Restorative Justice Resource Center (RJRC). We enlisted Dr. Ginger Swanson to facilitate a board retreat for us. I cannot come up with enough words to express how impressed I was with Ginger’s leadership and skill. She is that rare kind of individual who can blend diverse qualities of creativity with a keen intellect and with extraordinary interpersonal skills. I highly recommend that you consider Ginger for the facilitation of any kind of personal or professional retreat in either an individual or group format. She is nothing less than masterful.”

The depth and breadth of Ginger’s expertise -- I cannot give her a higher endorsement."
