The La Jolla Program

The La Jolla Program enters its second half-century.  We’ve been successfully facilitating groups of interesting and adventuresome people as we all address issues that are important in our lives.

Every year has brought many surprises!  Maybe the La Jolla Program is for you in 2017.

At our residential workshops participants take an extended occasion to meet in group sessions.  We learn about our lives in ways we can hardly imagine from our every-day busy and complex environments.  We’ll find that our personal experiences of pleasures, problems, successes, and failures bond us in amazing ways.

In a relaxed atmosphere we will experience with each other a sharing that you will undoubtedly relate to your life and your personal relationships.


  • You may choose to focus on important facets of your life in this supportive environment, like current and hoped-for relationships,
  • your career,
  • job changes,
  • your boss or your employees,
  • your current college experience,
  • your health or love life,
  • your kids’ successes and problems,
  • your parents,
  • and any and all other issues

You will probably interact with people who bring different customs, thoughts, values and aspirations to the conversation.  You may increase your acceptance and appreciation of others.

You will probably learn more about yourself at levels that are enriching and surprising, and feel care and support for being with others and being yourself!

For half a century The La Jolla Program has been at the forefront in practicing interpersonal encounter. We sit together in a circle, using the opportunity to talk and otherwise communicate. Our aim is to understand and experience our personal relatedness to happenings that concern us. Our conversations are essentially sincere but not without humor. People actually listen, and we hear ourselves as who we more deeply and subtly are. We come to know our lives better and meet other people in a more significant and heartfelt way.

At times our entire group will be meeting together, and we will also meet in consistent separate small groups.

The La Jolla Program will convene in conjunction with the 2016 WAPCEC Conference in New York. We will be based in the same facilities in central Manhattan, the St. Giles Court Hotel. Conference discounted room rates at the host hotel applies as well to The La Jolla Program.

Our Tuition: $400. U.S.
Our Schedule in New York:
July 24 7pm -10pm
July 25 9am -10pm
July 26 9am -10pm
July 27 9am - 6pm

As always, we welcome your comments, questions, encouragements:

The La Jolla Program features your development in listening skills, aptitude for empathy, self-awareness, and the understanding of others while meeting new people, making new friends and having a good time.

This is the fiftieth year we have offered variations on this workshop.

We began with the active participation of Carl Rogers, one of America’s most influential psychologists. The Program continues to follow in the client centered/person centered tradition associated with Dr. Rogers.

Many attendees from all over the world tell us, even years after their experience, that the Program was one of the most constructive and life enhancing experiences of their lives.

Workshop days are typically made up of small facilitated groups, community meetings of all of us, and optional activities that grow out of the interests of community members.  Time is set aside for self-directed recreation and group meals.  The days are long and full.
