 Transpersonal Development: Vulnerability and the   Spiritual Search 

Join us at a beautiful spiritual retreat center on Long Island for a 3-day seminar. Stay in residence or commute. Enjoy in-depth meditation, imagery and new discoveries.

The spiritual search starts in earnest when vulnerability, struggle, suffering, illness, disappointment, or a greater awakening to reality comes into our lives.  For over 40 years, we have responded to our patients’ search by helping them to cultivate deeper latent inner resources which give them new self-care tools and new insights to meet their vulnerability and grow from it.  We call this work transpersonal (simply meaning “beyond the personality”) development.  Based on the pioneering work of the Florentine neurologist and psychiatrist, Roberto Assagioli, MD, this training provides you with both the theoretical framework and step-by-step methods to awaken these potentials and to cultivate a new role for yourself as a transpersonal teacher for others.

  • The meaning of transpersonal – human resources beyond the personality
  • The Western transpersonal tradition – William James, Carl Jung, Roberto Assagioli
  • The integration of energetic, meditative and imagery practices
  • The four transpersonal resources of serenity, wisdom, purpose and oneness
  • Safe, effective, time-tested methods
  • How our transpersonal nature, once awakened, can help our vulnerability
  • Transpersonal development and wellness
  • Examples of transpersonal work in young adult anxiety and addictions recovery
  • Clinical settings for transpersonal work
What is Transpersonal Development?

Transpersonal means beyond the personality. It refers to the dormant spiritual qualities in human nature – serenity, wisdom, purpose and oneness – and how to awaken them to benefit your patients, clients, students and employees.
