Publisher's Synopsis
While psychosynthesis is offered as a synthesis of various therapies and educational approaches, it is well to keep in mind that it possesses its own original and central essence. This is so as not to present a watered-down and distorted version, or one over-coloured by the concepts and tendencies of the various contemporary schools. Certain fundamental facts exist, and their relative conceptual elaboration, deep experience and understanding are central, and constitute the sine qua non of psychosynthetic training. These experiences are:
  1. Disidentification  
  2. The personal self  
  3. The will: good, strong, skilful  
  4. The ideal model  
  5. Synthesis (in its various aspects)   
  6. The superconscious  
  7. The transpersonal Self

"This important book will undoubtedly be a great help to those individuals who are trying to help themselves toward self-growth and consciousness expansion. Recommended also to psychotherapists who are trying to go beyond the removal of symptoms."      ~Maslow


Roberto Assagioli, M.D. was a psychiatrist and a student of Freud who found the tenets of psychoanalysis too limited in scope. He went on to formulate a psychological perspective that could consider all aspects of the human condition; mental, physical, emotional and spiritual and integrate them into a Whole being.
