We invite you to Casa Assagioli. to participate in the unique experience we will create together during the International Meeting.
Through the years, we have witnessed the International Meetings at Casa Assagioli providing a strong boost for participants to develop their own activities, projects, and paths. The experience of past meetings shows the many ways Assagioli’s work inspires individuals, existing groups and new initiatives around the world.
September 20 we will celebrate World Psychosynthesis Day. This is a special day in the year when we have the chance to link and celebrate the spirit and message of Psychosynthesis.
The date was chosen during the recent 2016 International Conference of Psychosynthesis that took place in Taormina. It symbolizes the unity of purpose of all centers, groups and individuals in the world that resonate with the message of Psychosynthesis.
It feels as if the moment is right to acquire more awareness of being part of a greater energetic movement initiated by Roberto Assagioli, to feel that as Psychosynthesis practitioners or friends we belong to only one individuality which expresses the intuition of Roberto Assagioli in many different ways, but the Oneness lies in its essence.
We invite all groups, centers and individuals that resonate with this idea to join us, in any way you find it constructive and helpful to disseminate the idea. Many groups around the world will be holding a special meeting for the event, others are joining us by using the meditation outline printed in the attached card. The card displays an image from an Assagioli manuscript that has been the source of inspiration for this initiative. Please feel free to circulate it and spread the word to your coworkers, friends and contacts in your social media pages.
Finally, we are attaching a paper with the rationale for the event and hope it is helpful too. The paper, presented during the 2016 International Conference, will be published in the October issue of the Journal of Psychosynthesis of the Institute.
“The victory of humanistic principles and spiritual values, the development of mutual comprehension and of appreciation and cooperation among individuals, groups of different kinds, peoples and continents. This would lead to the creation of a new culture and world civilization, to which peoples and groups could contribute freely and that could constitute the awaited New Age”. (Roberto Assagioli)
The Istituto di Psicosintesi and Gruppo alle Fonti are happy to announce the publication of "Freedom in Jail", the first book in the new series Quaderni dell’Archivio Assagioli (Archivio Assagioli Notebooks).
Roberto Assagioli intended that his “prison diary” might become an autobiographical account of the time he spent in Regina Coeli prison under the fascist regime in 1940. Now held in the Archivio Assagioli in Florence and curated by Gruppo alle Fonti, the manuscript was never completed.
Nevertheless, Freedom in Jail offers a vivid picture of Assagioli’s experience through multiple lenses – from the raw concreteness of everyday events to his interior world. Throughout his testimony, Assagioli offers a personal example of how to use difficult life events as an opportunity to develop one's personal and spiritual psychosynthesis.
Freedom in Jail also provides - for the first time - an intimate look at Assagioli's own trials and profound insights as he uses his psychosynthesis concepts and techniques towards personal transformation and self-realization.
This book is a priceless testimony for anyone wanting to learn the process through which Roberto Assagioli realized “inner freedom, pure freedom… attained rising above the fetters, a sense of expansion…”
Edited, annotated and introduced by Catherine Ann Lombard, Freedom in Jail is now available in English, the original language of Assagioli’s manuscript.
The Assagioli Archives are now available for online consultation.
The online Archives include thousands of manuscripts and documents by Roberto Assagioli, preserved at the Istituto di Psicosintesi, located in Via San Domenico 16, Florence.
In the new website www.archivioassagioli.org you can access the scanned image of the original manuscripts and their transcription as given in the original text.
