In Alumni in Action, Newsletters

A time of turning inward, we have settled into longer nights and a deeper darkness. An important season of gestation before the world is reborn with Spring. What internal stirrings need their attention within you? How will you attend to this opportunity for inward reflection?
Even in the shorter days of winter, our alumni are busy lecturing, writing and gathering. We are delighted to share some highlights of our alumni community with you in this edition of the newsletter. (And don’t forget to join our Facebook page to stay connected!)

Healing, Peace and Soul: Dialogues of Reconnection and Renewal

This year, the Pacifica Graduate Alumni Association (PGIAA) and Pacifica Graduate Institute (PGI) join forces to create ‘Healing, Peace and Soul: Dialogues of Reconnection and Renewal’ bringing together the collective wisdom of Pacifica’s Emeritus Faculty, Core Faculty, Alumni, and Students.
Discussions will be depth-driven, and participants will leave campus with a renewed sense of purpose and direction.
