As we are all aware, COVID resulted in cancellation of our summer conference/retreats in 2020 and 2021. As a partial solution we have had monthly interactive sessions on topics of interest (including primal integration, non-ordinary states of consciousness, and breathwork); all sessions provide the opportunity for interaction among members via Zoom.
Because of the cancellations, elections have also been postponed. The Board of Directors has proposed that the present Board membership and officers (listed below) be continued until elections during the August 2022 summer conference/retreat at the Virden Center. If you have any concerns regarding this plan, please let me know.
We are all frustrated by the lack of personal interaction that is so important to all of us and look forward to our planned 2022 events:
In addition, we have scheduled an open meeting via Zoom to respond to any questions that you may have and to provide an update on IPA activities:
Zoom Open Meeting: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT (GMT-4), Saturday, October 2, 2021
The International Primal Association
The International Primal Association (IPA) strives to create a safe space to experience and integrate deep feelings, and support authenticity in a fully embodied way. We are creating a community that promotes acceptance, kindness, honesty and self-discovery.
The word primal refers to a method of psychological healing that examines the difficult and damaging aspects of our childhoods and helps us feel what was too much for us as children back then. This primal method of healing frees us in the present, so that instead of being shut down
and defensive, we become open and whole.
What We Are All About
When human beings function as an integrated whole, they easily
display peacefulness, openness, joy, and clarity, as shown in the above photos. We believe that primal healing is usually essential to regain such wholeness. (Pics are not of members.)
