Reflections on the message and on the nature of Psychosynthesis in the time of a pandemic

Lecture for the World Day of Psychosynthesis, 20 September 2020
Organized by The Swedish Psykosyntesföreningen and Psykosyntesförbundet

The goal of The World day of Psychosynthesis is to encourage a greater connection and a true mutual recognition among all centers, groups and individuals in the world that resonate with the message of Psychosynthesis. During this meeting, we reflected and meditated together on the guidelines that can inspire us to foster this process of synthesis. We also reflected on the nature of the vision proposed proposed by Roberto Assagioli: a vision that today reveals its incredible and surprising topicality and from which we can draw precious indications to orient ourselves in these challenging pandemic times.

“It is urgent to establish Spiritual “Airways” between nations, institutions, movements and across the continents. Let us give to this work comparatively at least as much energy, determination, desire, time, efforts as those which are given to establish airplane communications throughout the world.”      R. Assagioli, 20th September 1937
