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 IPA serves both the general public and our members with popular services such as: a summer conference, a spring retreat, and an archive of articles. For members only, the forum ewailer and the membership list are well used. Please see the links to your left for our other services. To join our mailing list, contact
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.
