The Western Association of Jungian Analysts (WCAJA)

Is inviting you to


September 27-29, 2024

At the Village Creek Country Inn, Pigeon Lake, AB

Why a Retreat?

WCAJA is an association of Jungian Psychoanalysts in Western Canada who are accredited members of the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP). Part of our mandate is to “offer public education and enrichment for all who are interested in Analytical Psychology (also known as Jungian Psychology)”. This ‘retreat’ will provide an opportunity for integrating a theoretical understanding of some of the concepts of analytical psychology with one’s own lived experience.


For the first time we are offering two weekend retreats, in Alberta and B.C. respectively, in 2024 and 2025 with a focus on some of the fundamental ideas of CG Jung. They are intended for anyone who is interested in Jungian psychology, regardless of whether you are a newcomer to Jung’s thought or someone already familiar with his works and wanting to deepen your understanding of them.


Over the course of the weekend the analysts will present not only some of Jung’s basic and essential contributions to the understanding of human psychology, but will also explore in a more general way the relevance and importance of Jungian psychology in today’s world. There will be ample opportunity for both formal and informal discussion and reflection with the analysts and other participants throughout the weekend.

The weekend will begin with a Wine Reception on Friday afternoon where we will be able to meet with one another before dinner. It will conclude on Sunday afternoon.
