Symposia

Approximately once per/year, program participants are invited to Club Perrydise in East Hampton, Connecticut for a unique learning event. During these retreats, a variety of lectures and workshops are offered over a five day period. Symposia are intended to intensify learning by giving students supervised practical application of previously studied theory. Counseling skills are taught and demonstrated in a manner specifically geared to the astrological practitioner.

Recreational activities are also available, including kayaking, canoeing, swimming, hiking, badminton, and an extensive home gym. Movies are shown each evening that entail specific archetypal themes.

Retreats are entirely voluntary. Students are encouraged to attend at least one retreat as part of their learning experience.
