What is transpersonal development?
Transpersonal development teaches you how to discover and benefit from the deeper resources in your nature. This training gives you practices to experience your innate transpersonal qualities of inner peace, inner wisdom, life purpose and oneness in daily life. Your training includes direct experience, intellectual understanding, open discussion, study with like-minded students and the gaining of new connections, wider perspectives and potential new directions for your own work.
Learn the role of the transformative journey described in Dante’s Divine Comedy as it relates to the framework of psychosynthesis.
Learn how Roberto Assagioli, the father of psychosynthesis, created a model of interaction between the personality and higher consciousness.

Day 1: The Continuous Insight
Learn the continuous insight about our innate higher consciousness that extends from the 14th Century mystical poet Dante to the 19th Century founder of modern nursing Florence Nightingale to 20th Century “father of American psychology” William James to the psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli MD to the latest 21st Century neuroscience.
Day 2: Personality Consciousness and Higher Consciousness
Assagioli’s development of psychosynthesis was designed to give people a working model of interaction between their personality and their higher consciousness/higher self. In this meeting, you learn how to identify your classic personality patterns to later utilize in your consciousness practices.
Day 3: Consciousness, Choice and the Will
Day 4: Identification with Awareness Itself
Assagioli emphasized that our awareness/consciousness is energy which has its source in a universal field of consciousness beyond the brain. This is now being explored in the latest neuroscience. Learn his methods for experiencing this natural fact and its benefits for yourself. In some spiritual schools, they are referring to this fact as non-dual consciousness, oneness, the selfless Self, awareness of awareness, etc.
