"At first Pacifica just seemed to be the right place to study Jung and Hillman. But what I didn’t expect was that coming here would actually become a life changing experience. Everything about this place, from the gardens and buildings, to the little details that surprise you on your way to class, not to mention the staff spirit, are thought of as living elements, generating a soulful container in which transformational learning can occur. I had no idea this was possible, until I felt it." —Camilo Ghorayeb, M.A./Ph.D. in Depth Psychology with Emphasis in Jungian and Archetypal Studies
