Please join us for the IPA Summer Conference and Retreat 2023. We are delighted to meet again in person this summer. The theme of the Conference is "Together at Last: Returning to Safe, Supportive Community." We will enjoy comfortable double rooms and delicious food.
Everyone who attends has the opportunity to lead or suggest a workshop that would interest some others. We welcome Primal or related presentations as well as activities focusing on movement, the arts, our verdant and intriguing surroundings, and whatever else would enhance our experience. Workshops may also incorporate Primal Theater, poetry, authentic movement, psychodrama, or Nonviolent Communication, to name a few. Workshops that have been scheduled in advance include: Enneagram types, Integrative Breathing, Art Expression, Core Energetics, and Emotional Pressure Points. In addition, there will be Mat Track (facilitated Primal group), men’s and women’s groups, and smaller peer groups every day. In the evenings, we will make music, perform for one another in Cabaret, and dance at the closing party.
The retreat begins on Sunday evening (5 pm check-in, dinner at 6 pm). Everyone will be required to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival. No one with a positive test result will be allowed to stay at the retreat. On Sunday we will decide on most of the activities for the week, so we hope you will be there to offer your own workshops or to ask for what you want. The retreat ends Saturday after lunch (2 pm check-out).
Although the costs to hold the retreat have increased significantly, we are offering the summer retreat at 2019 pricing, in order to decrease any financial burden to those wanting to attend.
During the retreat, the IPA’s Annual Membership Meeting and elections will take place Wednesday evening, August 16, 2023.
