For the past four decades, the IPA has held a yearly convention and retreat and it is the highlight of the IPA year. Usually this has been held at rather rural conference facilities in mid to late summer, typically in late August. We gather for community, for personal primal work, for personal growth, for learning, and for letting our hair down.
2017 Summer Convention and Retreat
Thursday, August 24 - Wednesday, August 30, 2017
Virden Retreat Center, Lewes, DE
2016: We are gathering at Virden Retreat Center, which you may remember from 2010, 2011 and last year. The Center features delicious healthy meals in an elegant dining room, single and double rooms with private baths, daily maid service, plenty of meeting spaces, and easy access to Delaware shore beaches. Please go to www.udel.edu/conferences and see for yourself. And members can look at the photos from 2010 and 2011 on this website to see what a good time we had. Charges will be on a sliding scale, so all of this luxury will be very affordable.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 810-229-9679 for more information. With all that the convention/retreat has to offer, possibly the most significant source of healing and joy is the availability of a supportive and loving community of feeling people. We are eager to really "see" you there this summer.
Warm regards from Dianne Arman and Bill Machold, Co-Chairs
