Angie Fee & Brian Graham

Essentials of Psychosynthesis - known as psychology with a soul - is a unique opportunity to further your personal and transpersonal/spiritual journey, whether you intend to embark on a deeper exploration in psychosynthesis or not. Participants have found the experience of Essentials moving, life-changing and enhancing, quite apart from the in-depth introduction to the vision, models, fresh therapeutic methods and techniques of psychosynthesis.

The workshop is a blend of experiential and theoretical work offered in the context of the Findhorn Foundation's transformational environment, rhythms and practices. You are given ample time on Saturday and Sunday to become acquainted with the Foundation and its practices, or if you have been here before, you may choose to use the time to settle in through quiet reflection.

Starting late Sunday afternoon, some of the Essentials topics that will be addressed during the workshop are:

  • Understanding Psychosynthesis as an holistic model
  • Working with concepts of identity and personal freedom
  • Integration of body, feelings and mind
  • Depth work and the unconscious processes
  • Introduction to, recognition of and working with subpersonalities
  • Creative use of pain, crisis and failure
  • Use of will and empowerment
  • Right human relationships
  • Meditation, evoking and developing desired qualities
  • Intuition and the transformation of psychological energies
  • Opening to superconscious experience and transpersonal crises
  • Introduction to the concept of the transpersonal experience.

How the course has affected recent students:

A fantastic course! ... I have done many self development courses over the years. This one was different. While other courses have helped me find ways of being focused and achieving results that I thought I wanted, Essentials helped me start to see the me inside that was making the choices and come to understand what my inner motivations were. By the end of the course I felt I had explored many different aspects of my being in a held and structured environment that allowed me to be in touch with my feelings and express them constructively ... I would recommend it to anyone.

Experiencing the Essentials course was like 'coming home'. I have always been keen on my own self-development, but I often feel the importance of this is diluted by people around me who do not overtly share the same interest. So being with a group of people who did understand and were so supportive and encouraging of this was incredibly refreshing and something I had wanted to experience for a long time. I really felt like I could be myself.

The Essentials was a lovely time - healing, tough at times, unique. It started a process which has led to much improved relationship with my brother. I hope to study the full course soon.

Please note that all our workshops have a Findhorn Foundation community member present either as focaliser or assistant.
