The purpose of the International Primal Association (IPA) is to explore, study, research, and promote forms of psychotherapy and growth, including those that emphasize uncovering and resolving traumatic experiences, and to develop a community that is congruent with the principles developed from this work.
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.)
