Dear fellow alumni, I serve on the Board of Pacifica Graduate Institute Alumni Association. I graduated with a PhD in Depth Psychology class of 2007. I am currently the chairperson of Special Education Programs in the LaFetra College of Education at the University of LaVerne in LaVerne, California.
I also co-direct the Center for Neurodiversity, Learning, and Wellness at the university with Dr. Niki Elliott, whom if she did not tell you she graduated from Berkley and Columbia you would assume also went to Pacifica, steeped as she is in Anima Mundi.
Even with such a soul sister at my side daily I still yearn for those deep and long sea breeze scented conversations out on the lawn, or after dinner or on the top floor of the Best Western ! Sometimes I yearn for a writing partner or co-presenter at a conference and now with the Center drawing passionate teachers from around the world to our doorstep I want to collaborate with my Pacifica colleagues. The Want Ads page on the Alumni Webpage was designed to address such yearnings and wants; as well as to serve as a conduit for things as practical as an alumna , who was downsizing living arrangements and wanted to sell her complete set of the Collected Works.
Through the want Ads she did sell them.
If you have a yearning, a want, or a need that one of your fellow alumni may be able to address or if you are curious about what might be in the Want Ads, please drop in (in cyber-speak) to see what is there.
