The Synthesis Center

is a nonprofit educational institution, founded in 1976. We are an organization of people committed to supporting the conscious evolution of individuals and society as a whole, through our teaching and practice of psychosynthesis. We endeavor to provide services of the highest quality in an atmosphere that is intellectually exciting, supportive of personal needs, and spiritually inspiring. Services of the Center include professional training programs in psychosynthesis, coaching services, educational and support groups, workshops and business consulting. The Center is located in Amherst, Massachusetts, a small and culturally diverse college town nestled in the scenic Connecticut River Valley. How to contact us.

Graduate Workshops with Didi!
What We Know: Intuition, Imagination & Impulse
November 4, 10-4
What We Know: Body, Mind & Feeling
December 9, 10-4


Join Didi for one or both of these sessions, directed towards deepening our self-awareness, connecting with others, and stepping with firm feet into whatever path is calling us. The day will be all psychosynthesis, from presence, to purpose, to will and we will live the maps and practices we all know and love at deeper levels, through the lens of our own beings.  

These two workshops invite a deep dive into the psychological functions map. Yay Star Diagram!    
The sessions are only for people who are psychosynthesis trained. We will all refine the art of being.  
Our first session will involve creating a collage as a way of accessing intuition, trusting impulse and allowing imagination to give us guidance. This outcome will be built around a number of processes, including all the stuff you love in psychosynthesis, including being a group, journeying together!

Our second session will explore the integration of body, mind and feelings, while also knowing each as its own puzzle piece. There will be movement! And Thinking! And Feelings! And the quiet mind, fluid body and sweet feeling worlds will come together.
(For those that need it, the day will be set up to meet BCC continuing education credits with a certificate of Training in the Psychological Functions).

Come for one or both. $250 per day or $450 for both! Please register with Didi!
