Since so many spiritual seekers in every time and culture have come before us and left clues to the mysteries, we can say with certainty that the answers are known to exist in your deeper nature. All that is waiting for you to do is to consciously choose to become a seeker of these answers. Let this book honor and awaken your deeper nature and lead you on a journey of new personal understanding and liberation. Framing the journey in exquisite Tuscan images and evocative words inspired by the great mystical poet Dante, The Florentine Promise can become your cherished guide for years to come. “Bonney and Richard Schaub fell in love with Florence when they came to visit the city where Dante wrote his Divine Comedy and where Roberto Assagioli developed psychosynththesis.
What they offer here are the fruits of their 35 years of experience – a true journey of the Soul and a precious opportunity for practicing creative meditation as in the best traditions of psychosynthesis.” Massimo Rosselli, MD, and Susie Rosselli, Italian Society for Psychosynthesis Therapy “The purpose of pilgrimage is to penetrate the wall of appearances in order to explore the worlds known to saints, poets, mystics and artists, and to attain advanced answers to the questions we are compelled to ask about being alive.” The Pilgrim’s Guide to the Siena Region “Spiritual realization is the direct experience of the part of your nature which is identical to the great energy pervading the universe.” Roberto Assagioli, MD “There is an almost sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.” Pierre Teilhard De Chardin, geologist, Jesuit scholar
