This website aims to integrate the various psychosynthesis resources available on the web. The website will be built iteratively, and therefore it will be a work in progress. I will use the blog at the bottom of this page to signal progress made so far, and any emerging developments on the website.
The intention is to launch a quarterly magazine / journal in September this year, that will complement the website, but also include interesting articles and interviews from those involved in the psychosynthesis community. For economic reasons, the magazine will initially be sent as an email PDF. Please let me know if you want to be on the mailing list.
This website emerged from a discussion group that was created during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, which itself took shape from an online seminar led by Paul Elliott and Aubyn Howard. Many people felt that the pandemic had positive and negative aspects, but that it was in some sense a “call to action” to the psychosynthesis community.
Action for what purpose? Of course, everyone has different personal goals and so there was little agreement on any specific agenda for change. But I felt in the discussions that followed that there has been an emerging sense of common purpose among some participants. It seemed timely to set up a “community” website where people with an interest in psychosynthesis can share ideas and no doubt — often — beg to differ as well.
I am developing this website on my own, at least initially, but over time I hope to include the viewpoints and perspectives of all the psychosynthesis groups around Europe and beyond.
For those of you who might be interested to find out a bit about who is developing this website, please click here. This page has a few details about my career and interests, and I will add some links to my other websites in due course.
“A contrast is sometimes made between meditation and action, but this is erroneous. The mastery and application of psychological and spiritual energies are actions; for they require will, training and the employment of appropriate techniques; and above all because they are effective — they produce results.”
27th July: I changed the Materials tab at the bottom to Creativity. This was partly in response to discussions among one of the users groups I have worked with. 20th July: I've got most of the framework for the website ready. Still quite a lot of content that still...
