‘I’ the story of the Self

Psychosynthesis Summerschool by Diederik van Rossum

“Men go abroad to wonder at the height of mountains,
at the huge waves of the sea,
at the long courses of the rivers,
at the circular motion of the stars;
and they pass by themselves without wondering.”

St Augustine

There are times in life when we all wonder who we are, to whom we belong and to what ‘call’ we respond. These intimate questions rise up with a sometimes shattering force of uncertainty about the purpose and meaning of our lives. The journey we embark upon from this uncertainty, as individuals and as groups of individuals, is at the heart of psychosynthesis research and of this course.

This course will remind you of a long-forgotten truth, that the answers to your fundamental questions as a human being are not quite so far away.

The course offers –both conceptual and experiential- knowledge and insight into the height and depth of your psychological constitution as a human being from a spiritual perspective. We will explore and practice ways to the conscious self with the ‘I’ as the way of learning, as the vehicle for the search for meaning and self-realization.

Highlights of the course program:

  • sovereignty of the heart and dependency of the world;
  • lifetime and Life Story;
  • meaning and suffering;
  • letting go and the importance of attachment;
  • individuality and community;
  • ‘I’ and Self;
  • ambition, ego inflation and self-realization;
  • awakening to self and solitude;
  • inner ways in an outer world.

This course is for people who:

  • are interested in psychosynthesis;
  • are interested in the relationship between individual and world and between Spirit and Soul.

The course will be taught in English.
