The Faran Center for Guided Imagery

The Faran Center for Guided Imagery has a staff of professionals who have developed practices of mental imagery under the direction of Dr. Francis X Clifton. The work enables individuals to overcome illness through the use of imagery exercises in conjunction with traditional medicine. The practices focus on the emotional, psychological, and belief aspects of health while helping individuals to explore their deepest selves.

Activating the possible is why The Faran Center was founded: Faran means "to move" from possible to actual, from visible to invisible, and from surface to depth.

This is a practice of applying attentional mind to our health, to our goals, and to our lives, despite our history


"Illness, emotional blockage, and depression can be the beginning of our quest for light. For when we recognize the darkness, maybe even embrace it, our journey to light can begin." Insight from Dr. Francis X. Clifton
