Psychosynthesis: a precious gift in this era of transition
We are living in an era of transition, characterized by the profound changes that the unstoppable process of globalization (perhaps the labor of giving birth to a consciousness with a planetary extension) brings with it.
We are facing not only several “hot” issues, many of which are absolutely not new – socio-economic and gender inequalities, wars, mass migration, exploitation of childhood, intense climate changes, etc. – but above all we are facing the new global scope of these issues. It is this global impact, I believe, that is the substantial difference from the past.
Obviously, this state of affairs also has a profound effect on individuals. It reshapes our old needs and constellates new ones. Psychology (and with it the other scientific disciplines) has the ethical task of confronting and questioning itself deeply on this state of affairs, in order to offer visions and articulated, meditated and effective answers. It is no longer just a question of the good and health of individuals, but of the good and health of the entire human group, and of all the living beings who inhabit this planet.
It is here that Psychosynthesis reveals today, perhaps even more than in the past, its extreme topicality, its solid foundation, its being a precious gift. Why?
Because what most characterizes it, is its systemic, complex and synthetic vision inspired by the guiding principle of all Psychosynthesis: the general principle of organization, integration and synthesis (which expresses itself at various levels: theoretical and practical; individual, inter-individual, social and planetary). It is an integral vision of the human being, considered in all its aspects and, above all, in the relations between these different aspects.
