Coming Home 2020: “The Stories We Tell”
(on campus and live streaming!)
Friday, January 17 – Sunday, January 19, 2020
Bonus Career Workshop Thursday, January 16, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm:
Co-presented by Linked In and PGIAA: “ARE YOU READY?”
Free for Pacifica Students, Alumni, and the Public
Join us for a glorious weekend of re-connection, re-centering, and regaling. Come remember your Pacifica story, start a new story, or share past stories during this annual reunion event celebrating Pacifica Alumni and our paths in the world.
Our theme for 2020, The Stories We Tell, follows a time of destruction and rebuilding, both locally and globally, and endeavors to re-center us and our work through remembering, re-creating, and continuing to develop our own visions and experiences and how we share these stories with the world.
We humans need each other. For those whose calling is to tend the soul in and of the world, like so many of our Pacifica Graduate Institute Alumni, a regular gathering to reconnect and revivify our loves and dreams with others who understand this essential task, is as necessary as breath, sunlight, and water.
We hope you can find support and inspiration through this year’s Coming Home theme, The Stories We Tell. Whether you can join us on campus, or via live-streaming, we welcome you to this event. Please click the button below to register and get more information about the weekend’s schedule.
“It’s a feeling that’s hard to describe… a collection of things, tangible and intangible, that feed your soul. It’s that sense of calm and peace, that the world is ‘right’ as you step through the doorway. It’s that feeling of comfort, like a favorite pair of jeans. It’s where nothing needs to be said, no-one needs to be there, but you know you’ve just been greeted by your best friend.
It’s that one place in the universe where you can just be ‘you’, surrounded by the things you love, the memories you have, and where the people you care about are allowed ‘in’. At the heart of it, coming home is where you can be most vulnerable because you feel safe, and all your senses are fed.”
