How do we focus our courage and curiosity to create movement and change in our way of being in the world?

…by choosing a course that is alive, relational and engaging, offering an enriching process of becoming more of who you are.

…by saying yes to engaging deeply with your own experience to support healing and self-knowledge.

Spiritual Psychology Essentials is a standalone programme for anyone interested in deepening their own transformation. Offered in partnership with the Psychosynthesis Trust in London, it is also a first step in training to become a counsellor or psychotherapist.

The course is a prerequisite to enter stage two of the Psychosynthesis Trust’s Foundation Certificate in Psychosynthesis, held twice a year in September and February. So if this is of interest to you, Spiritual Psychology Essentials is a MUST!

The psychosynthesis model

This course offers an introduction to a practical, coherent and rigorous psychospiritual development process – the psychosynthesis model.

Learning, experience and exploration includes:

  • Access to creativity, intuition and inner wisdom
  • Connection to purpose, meaning and direction
  • Tools for inner leadership
  • Insight into limiting patterns and blocks
  • The possibility for more open and authentic relationships
  • Sense of wellbeing and interconnectedness with the larger whole

“All of the ideas and exercises had great value in them. I particularly enjoyed the exercise where we were asked to vocalise the wants of the other participants in smaller groups. It felt so powerful coming together in that way.”

What to expect

This course is not for the faint hearted! We invite committed participation with a willingness for transformation.

Psychosynthesis brings you into contact with your inner experience and can be emotionally evocative. You will need to have a safe, confidential environment, good internet connection and to keep your video on for the duration of the sessions.

The 3.5 hour session each week allows time for sharing, reflection and integration of your learning experience. There will also be breakout groups for sharing and reflection.

There will be opportunities to practice and put into action your learnings between sessions. Buddy groups will provide additional peer to peer support.

“It was thoughtfully organised and presented. The sum of the parts was definitely greater than the whole… For me, subpersonalities and will were very powerful.”
