    Veteran's Day Weekend

    Honorary Jungian Retreat

    This is your opportunity to attend what will likely be an enjoyable experience, not only in honor of a psychologist who has been integral in the education and training of professionals in the Central Valley, but also in honor of the annual and semi-annual Jungian retreats that became iconic throughout the past few decades.

    Event Details:

    The retreat will be held on the weekend of November 8th through 11th (Friday through Monday).  It will be held at the Mission San Antonio du Padua (located at 1 Mission Creek Rd., Jolon, CA 93928).  The cost of attendance is $312 and this includes room, board, and all meals during the retreat (dinner Friday through breakfast Monday).  Payment is made directly to the Mission.

    Most cellular phones do not have service, and the retreat typically includes a personal commitment to refrain from the use of technology throughout the retreat, as well as refraining from talking outside of group meetings which are held throughout the weekend with other attendees.

    There are a total of 29 rooms, but those are filling up fast.  If you are interested in attending, please contact Michael Girouard, Ph.D. at

    SJVPA is happy to advertise for this event opportunity.  However, SJVPA is only providing advertising for this event.  We will not be able to register or process payment to attend this event.  Please contact Dr. Girouard with the above email to learn how to register and pay for the event.

    SJVPA will not be offering continuing education credit for this event, nor is SJVPA a sponsor of the event.
