Are you ready to take the next step?

Friday, March 20, 2020 from 10:00am – 4:00pm

Are you ready to take the next step and earn your M.A. or Ph.D. Degree? Join us for our Information/Orientation Day and learn about our various degree programs in the tradition of Depth Psychology informed by the teachings of C.G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, Marion Woodman, James Hillman, and others.

Some places you have to experience first-hand to understand just how special they are. The first thing you will notice about Pacifica is the beauty of our campuses: richly green, peaceful, a bounty of organic fruit trees, flowers, and the Santa Ynez Mountains rising above us.

When beginning your journey toward richer knowledge of depth psychology, you may need guidance to decide which program, professors, and place would be the best fit for you. As Pacifica president Joseph Cambray says, “Our Pacifica Experience Days give potential applicants an opportunity for a brief but rich immersion into student life on our campuses. As Pacifica’s president, I happily welcome attendees, along with our provost. This is followed by a faculty presentation on a topic of broad interest, which replicates the graduate classroom experience.” This gives you the opportunity to experience what it feels like to be in a classroom, having a dialogue with a scholar who has made depth psychology their life’s work.

A Pacifica Experience Day usually ends with a campus tour and time to delve into our libraries. Walking into the special collections room at Lambert, you are surrounded by Joseph Campbell and Marija Gimbuta’s personal books and the intangible sense of knowledgeable inquiry of two minds who shaped this field. On our Ladera Lane Campus, you can tour OPUS Archives and Research Center, where the collections of Joseph Campbell, Marija Gimbutas, James Hillman, and Marion Woodman are housed.

Pacifica is an accredited graduate school offering degrees in Clinical Psychology, Counseling Psychology, the Humanities and Mythological Studies. The Institute has two beautiful campuses nestled between the foothills and the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara. All of Pacifica’s degree programs are offered through low-residential learning sessions that take into account vocational, and life commitments. Students come to Pacifica from diverse backgrounds in pursuit of an expansive array of academic, professional and personal goals.

Pacifica’s $75.00 application fee will be waived for all attendees.

This Open House provides an excellent opportunity to:

  • Experience Pacifica’s unique interdisciplinary graduate degree programs through faculty-led, program-specific information sessions and presentations.
  • Hear from Pacifica students and alumni about their experience and what they are doing with their degrees.
  • Explore the grounds of Pacifica’s two campuses—the Lambert Road Campus and the Ladera Lane Campus.

Featured Presentation by Dr. Keiron Le Grice

Individuation: A Multi-dimensional Perspective

The central concept of Jungian psychology, individuation refers to a complex process by which we can better come to terms with the unconscious dimension of human experience and move towards greater psychological wholeness. It is closely connected with themes such as self-realization, the evolution of consciousness, and the quest to discover and live one’s own deeper life meaning. In this talk, Keiron Le Grice will explore some of the many aspects of the individuation process and consider how a Pacifica education might help us to advance along this path.

 Keiron Le GriceDr. Keiron Le Grice is core faculty in the Jungian and Archetypal Studies specialization at Pacifica. He is the author of several books including The Archetypal Cosmos and The
Rebirth of the Hero
