I believe that we are all deeply attuned to the whole as systems within a larger system; we receive and send information constantly along the strands of the living web that holds us all. But more importantly, the breadth of the psychosynthesis perspective allows the recognition and validation of an extensive range of human experience: This can include the free flow of energy, a sense of connection to the Self and to the oneness of all life.
If a system only maintained itself according to established patterns as most mechanical systems doit would be unable to adapt to changing conditions in the environment and eventually wear out, or blow up, or collapse.
Is Psychosynthesis an Integral Psychology? Scope[ edit ] This article needs a LOT of work, a major problem being that Egg psychosynthesis gives virtually no idea of the goals or scope of Psychosynthesis.
His model provides a method to examine or validate the integral nature of any psychotherapeutic discipline and this will be the main focus for this article in relation to Psychosynthesis.
In his conception of Psychosynthesis he clearly envisioned it as a Hierarchy: Here too are different levels: Nevertheless, Wikipedia articles need to cite published sources; and, without that, any statements not supported by sources could Egg psychosynthesis deleted at any time.
Thus the subtler ultra-violet radiations are for the most part intercepted in the upper parts of the atmosphere even when this is pure. In Chapter Two I will demonstrate this in detail.
Spiritual is connected with: When someone becomes overheated, for example, negative feedback loops within the body stimulate perspiration, the evaporation of which helps cool the body to within an optimal temperature range, reducing the deviation from this norm. The will is essentially our will-to-be- a-self, and it leads to authenticity.
In the library you can find over 50 articles on Psychosynthesis and inI published the book The Soul of Psychosynthesis: The experience of these energies can be quite joyful and beneficial, but they are not spiritual in the sense Assagioli and Wilber define spirituality.
Assagioli described his mission in this way. It is here that we become a self-conscious person.
Not only that but it seems new age and just another occult or mystical take on Jungian anaylisis? Involution is in this respect the whole downward movement, whereby Spirit loses and forgets itself in successively lower levels and in this way becomes immanent in creation.
When we call self-care spiritual attainment, in my opinion we tend to lead our clients astray. I also wish to thank my tutor Martin Egan for many good advices and Annabritt Jakielski for proofreading it all.
All levels are reflected on the physical level e. The logical conclusion of this philosophy is that the Self must be understood as a spiritual being which is not found in the lower unconscious.
At the same time, we want to experience this Self as fully as possible in the world of everyday existence — we want to be fully present in our personal and social lives.
Editors have permission to delete the "External links modified" sections if they want, but see the RfC before doing mass systematic removals. What do you think? The middle unconscious 2 is the pre-conscious, and the psychic elements are similar to those of the waking consciousness, so the exact nature of this content depends on the stage of development of the particular individual.
None of these important spheres of human existence need be reduced to the other, and each can find its right place in the whole. After all, the primary aim of psychology is to develop an understanding of the functioning of the mind, which is very different from the stated aim of psychosynthesis of improving that functioning by eliminating conflicts and stimulating immature functions.
This means that no matter what type of experience is engaged, and no matter what phase of growth is negotiated, the complexity and uniqueness of the person may be respected—a fundamental principle in any application of psychosynthesis.
We have a biological, psychological, and spiritual DNA that we are meant to realize. People use Psychosynthesis as a way of life — and in a wide variety of fields, such as education, psychology, business, and spirituality. Instead of the depth psychological perspective, he shifts to a height psychological approach and introduces a stage model where the self is developing through a series of psychological stages or levels ranging from body, mind, soul to Spirit.
This map is a gift in that it gives a hint of the wholeness and richness of the human being — and of the certainty that growth is possible.
When our physical bodies are threatened with real and immediate danger, we need the instantaneous response of instinct and conditioned response to protect ourselves. All claims of spirituality have to be expressed through a more pure strict and conscious morality than average man.
The soul contains our inherent goodness, truth, and beauty. We can use any psychological function and begin a process that changes us as a whole person.
It is important to notice that the confusion of levels can and does exist independently of what type of developmental model we use. This will be the next research area.
Assagioli concurrently claims that a false democratic ideal of equality makes the concept of higher development problematic:Psychosynthesis principles and techniques have been used effectively in education, medicine, politics and business, as well as in all forms of counseling and psychotherapy and personal, business and group coaching.
the "Egg" and "Star" diagrams can be seen here. Psychosynthesis is an approach to psychology that was developed by Roberto Assagioli and the ‘egg diagram’ is its equivalent to the Tree of Life with which it effectively segues.
Assagioli poured his vast knowledge and understanding into Psychosynthesis and its rich and effective approach to psychology is enhanced through its correspondence. A Suggested Change in the Egg Diagram By John Firman InRoberto Assagioli published the article "Psicoanalisi e Psicosintesi" in the Hibbert Journal (cf.
Assagioli, ). This seminal article was later to become "Dynamic Psychology and Psychosynthesis," the lead chapter of his first major book, Psychosynthesis. Within psychosynthesis there is a core perspective that says that each individual and each organism has a history, a present and a future potential.
This perspective will help us understand the model within psychosynthesis that is called The Egg since it has the shape of a standing egg. The Psychosynthesis egg, like the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, on which it was modelled, is an excellent synthetic container for understanding and working with the psyche from an experiential perspective.
