ISTITUTO DI PSICOSINTESI
fondato da Roberto Assagioli - Associazione di Promozione Sociale

Introduction

We feel the need for connection and renewal in the psychosynthesis community, in these times of crisis and change.
We are envisioning a co-creative and experiential conference, to which all can contribute on an interactive basis, exploring ideas and creating new international projects and plans.
By World we inclusively mean a complex living entity, which includes humanity as a whole, nature and the Earth and their interaction and interplay.
One of our goals is to assess psychosynthesis tools more deeply and widely, in order to address the challenges that threaten the Planet.
Group-awareness seems to be vital in order to survive the turmoil and peril of the Earth.
Psychosynthesis is concerned not only with the physical environment but more with the psychological and spiritual environment. We deeply believe that by expanding our consciousness, and shifting our perspective from an ego-centric to a World-centric one, we can make the world a better, more life-sustainable place.
We are all very familiar with the idea of the interconnectedness of everything, but how can we ground our higher ideals in actual life, individually and collectively? What does the World really mean to us in our concrete fields of action and expression? What can we actually do for the Planet? How can our inner and outer work affect the World? How can we heal the split between  our inner-world and outer-world.

The Kabbalists often used the expression "tikkùn olàm" that means "repairing the world". Interestingly enough, the word "olam" ("world") in Hebrew comes from the root "neelam" that means "to hide", and the World is somehow hidden to us.
Rediscovering the world is an ongoing process. Maybe it's not by chance that the same word "neelam" in Sanskrit means "precious stone". How precious is the Earth to us?

Connecting, questioning, envisioning, planning, sharing will be the keywords of our work.

This will be a residential retreat: expect  intense inner work, but fun and good food too, in a beautiful area near Rome.
