Dear IPA Members and Friends,

Please join us for our annual Spring Retreat. This year we will remember and celebrate the life of Harriet Geller. In addition to her prodigious contributions to the IPA over a span of 40 years, Harriet was one of the early supporters of the Spring Retreat and served as chair and co-chair for this event multiple times. We will miss her intrepid spirit as well as her quintessential workshops in poetry and in working with “ideal parents.”

Everyone who attends has the opportunity to lead or suggest a workshop. We welcome proposals for Primal or related modalities as well as activities focusing on movement, the arts, and nature. In addition, there will be daily Mat Track (facilitated Primal group), men’s and women’s groups, and smaller check-in groups. In the evenings, we will make music, perform for one another in Cabaret, and dance at the closing party.

The Retreat begins on Wednesday evening when we will decide on most of the program for the week: we hope you will be there to choose workshops and to reap the benefit of the full four days. Keep in mind that space at The Farmhouse is limited, so register early and get the early-bird discount as a bonus.

We look forward to reconnecting with old friends and making many new ones

Warmest regards,
Jean Rashkind and Alex Tadeskung, Retreat Check out the Kirkridge Retreat and Study Center's website.
