Forthcoming Trainings: nationally & internationally

The Synthesis Center has been one of the leading centers of Psychosynthesis education and training in North America for the past 40 years.  We use the Psychosynthesis model as a very effective and transformative way to train life coaches and many others in the helping professions, as well as for the process of personal and spiritual growth.  We are thrilled to see the work of the Center take root and grow through new staff, in new locations, partenering with the Synthesis Center to take this work into the world.

Our courses are accredited through the Center for Credentialing and Education, which means that you are eligible to sit for the national Board Certified Coach (BCC) exam upon completion of our program if you meet BCC requirements. (see their site at: Our programs also lead to certification as a Psychosynthesis Life Coach.
