Experience La Jolla in Wales

The La Jolla Program U.K. is hosting a residential event from 25th February until 5th March 2006 in Pen Rhiw, St Davids, Wales.

The La Jolla Program is a project of the Center for Studies of the Person in La Jolla, San Diego, California which was founded in 1968 by Carl Rogers and others who shared his philosophy. This 8 day workshop provides an opportunity to experience and learn from the Person-Centred group encounter. Participants will spend their time exploring the core conditions of the Person-Centred approach and developing and deepening their capacity to live those conditions. The workshop is intentionally not overly structured, allowing the interests of the group to substantially guide and focus the interaction. There will be a combination of small groups and whole community time, with the exact pattern of each day being negotiated with participants.

The group facilitators are Will Stillwell, who is coming over from San Diego and Steve Vincent, the only full U.K. member of the Center for Studies of the Person. Will is a key staff member of the La Jolla Program and was a colleague of the late Carl Rogers. Steve has 25 years of experience as a person-centred therapist, supervisor and trainer. He previously ran the person-centred training unit at Southampton City College and now works as a therapist in primary care. Will and Steve ran the La Jolla Program together in the UK in 2000 and 2005.

The venue at Pen Rhiw is only half a mile from the Cathedral City of St Davids. Further information on the venue can be found at while further information about the Center for Studies of the Person can be found at

The cost of the program is £495 inclusive of all meals and accommodation. A £50 deposit secures your place.
