Interested in psychosynthesis?
Talk to the Trainers!


Psychosynthesis is founded on "the perception of the light immanent in the human soul and in the whole of creation," says its founder, Roberto Assagioli. For over 100 years this wisdom has guided this spiritual psychology. Practiced today, psychosynthesis is applied in many fields as a form of guiding. If you are inspired to guide, as coach or therapist, teacher or body worker, minister or parent, or as a seeker yourself, consider joining The Synthesis Center as it moves into its 36th year of training. Both the in-person and teleconference trainings are powerful personal, professional and spiritual journeys. They leads, as well, to certification as a Psychosynthesis Life Coach and Board Certified Coach. We invite you to have a conversation with Didi Firman or Jon Schottland, program trainers, about this path to right livelihood and personal well being. To schedule a one on one conversation, contact We look forward to sharing some time with you.
