Product Description

From the Author

Part 1 of this book, the Elements of Psychosynthesis, was originally published in 1990. My brief from Element Books was to write a book on Psychosynthesis that could be easily understood by a casual reader purchasing the book at an airport bookstand. The reviews I received were by and large complimentary and suggested I had indeed made Psychosynthesis available to a wider audience. After several reprints of the English edition, and translations into Italian, German, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish and Slovenian, the book only went out of print when the publisher went out of business. Part 2, Beyond the Elements, is new material that takes Psychosynthesis into both deeper and wider realms. The emphasis is towards the psychospiritual and transpersonal aspects of Psychosynthesis, including a detailed description of its esoteric roots. The interface between Psychosynthesis and the Kabbalah, how Psychosynthesis can be used to increase our understanding of various areas, including sexuality, dreaming, connecting with and effectively using the inner witness are some of the topics covered in a direct and practical way. Roberto Assagioli said that Psychosynthesis may take someone to the doorway of spiritual attainment but not beyond, thus aligning it with major esoteric teachings. To the existential truism that we both enter and leave life alone, esoteric teachings add that each of us has to step through the doorway of spirituality alone. Psychosynthesis offers many perspectives on how to reach that doorway and the potential of companionship along the way. Like the Western mystery schools, it also focuses on how to bring our visions and insights back into the everyday world in a grounded and meaningful way. The purpose of this book is to aid such process, and position Psychosynthesis as the psychology of choice not only as we transit difficult global times in the early stages of a new millennium, but also as we enter more fully into the exciting and challenging times ahead. The aim, to quote Assagioli, is to develop ‘…the strength and the power to express compassion according to wisdom; the wisdom and compassion to use power for the greatest good.’ --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Psychosynthesis is a practical system that integrates principles
and techniques from many approaches to personal and spiritual growth. It is
not about the application of techniques, however, but learning to live with
a vision that comes from deep within oneself and how to bring this vision
into everyday life in a meaningful way.

This new, revised edition of Psychosynthesis: The Elements and Beyond takes
the reader into deep explorations of the psychospiritual and transpersonal
realms in a practical way and reveals Psychosynthesis as the psychology of
choice for now. The relevance of Psychosynthesis is emphasised not just for
the individual but also for the larger world in which we live. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
