Overview

The Call of Self: Psychosynthesis Life Coaching takes readers on a journey to the depths and heights of a transpersonally oriented life coaching methodology. Psychosynthesis, most simply stated, is a name for the process of personal and spiritual growth: the natural tendency in all people to evolve at ever more inclusive levels of organization. In its more specific sense, Psychosynthesis is a name for the conscious attempt to cooperate with the natural process of personal development. All beings contain within them a drive to become the fullest realization of themselves. This process can be supported consciously, and Psychosynthesis, especially in a strong allied relationship such as coaching, is one means to do this.

Life Coaching has been destined to find a home in the powerful methodology of psychosynthesis, and this book is designed to introduce this work to professionals in the field of coaching, those who may be interested in entering this blossoming field and the many individuals who, themselves, are seekers on the path of Realization.

This edited book covers areas of Coaching from the classic life, business and wellness coaching into more distinct areas of coaching, including trauma, career, ecology, yoga, body work, spiritual practice, gender, empowerment of the will and more.

Edited by Dr. Dorothy Firman, a New York Times best selling author and Psychosynthesis Life Coach and trainer, authors from around the world offer their expertise in specialty areas of coaching as well in the experiential world of being a Coach and ally in service of creating a safer and saner world.

Section headings include: Psychosynthesis Life Coaching: The Goodness of Fit; Transpersonal Coaching: The Call of Purpose Meaning and Values; Inviting Transformation: The Deep Work of Psychosynthesis Coaching; People with People: Working in Systems; Coaches Evolving; Personal and Professional Perspectives on the Field; Past, Present & Future

Cooperating effectively with this process can be assisted by a conceptual understanding of the nature of this evolution, and by practical techniques. Psychosynthesis provides these and integrates them into an inclusive and ever-growing framework designed to support the individual, groups, and the planet in their process of unfolding.

As an inclusive approach to human growth, Psychosynthesis dates from 1911 and the early work of Roberto Assagioli, an Italian Psychiatrist. Though one of the pioneers of psychoanalysis in Italy, Assagioli maintained that Freud had not given sufficient weight to the “higher” aspects of the human personality, and recognized a need for a more inclusive concept of humanity. From this beginning Assagioli and an increasing number of helping professionals have worked to develop and refine this inclusive view of human growth.
