2014 Retreat

Ocean Creek ResortDownload Brochure
OPA will host its Annual Professional Astrology Retreat March 20-23, 2014 at Ocean Creek Resort, in beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC. This retreat is designed for the professional development of beginning through advanced students and astrologers.

Whereas most conferences are focused externally, this experience focuses more on you, the subject, rather than the subject matter. As a consequence, you are led to embark on a personal exploration.

There are two main components to the OPA retreat: the large group experience and the small group experience. The large group experience happens with all of us gathering together each morning to listen to speakers and participate in the same forum. The small group experience happens with participants working together under the supervision of a trained leader, in a pre-assigned group of your choice. You will work with a highly skilled astrology professional and a small group of peers for fifteen hours!

Working intensively with a successful professional astrologer will provide an unmatched mentoring experience from which you will receive countless benefits. The connection with peers in your group adds a highly dynamic potency to the work and will enhance your personal confidence and knowledge. At the end of the retreat not only will you have a firm grasp of the material in your track, you will know more about yourself, your strengths and limitations, than you ever did before.

On Saturday evening (March 22) we will celebrate International Astrology Day with a banquet held at the resort. This add on event ($30 pp - not included in conference registration) will be another opportunity to connect with the OPA family of astrologers. Purchase your banquet ticket here.

We invite you to join us at the next retreat for the time of your life. It promises to be a wonderful experience in the serene setting of Ocean Creek Resort near the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC. You will have the opportunity to enrich your life, make new friends and apply new skills to your practice right away!
