The way the material is presented enables the reader meeting Psychosynthesis for the first time a good overview of its theory, practice and potential. It also presents the more familiar reader with the perspective and experience of a seasoned practitioner, offering up food for thought in the issues posed and the clarity with which they are written about. (Ian Townsend)A clear introduction to the basic principles of traditional psychosynthesis, and to the thinking of Roberto Assagioli – one of the key figures of transpersonal psychology. (Sarah Van Gogh)Psychosynthesis in Action is a must read for all coaches wishing to Transcend and go beyond the everyday, into a realm of meaning and purpose and to be Present to themselves and to their clients – Psychosynthesis is the foundation from which Transpersonal Coaching was birthed. As Diana Whitmore writes, ” Psychosynthesis maintains that the transpersonal is evolutionary in the sense of moving us forward, being our next step in manifesting our potential”, so relevant to coaching which looks to the future and emerging potential. (Emma Farr Rawlings Ph.D., MCC, MFT)It’s not surprising that Diana Whitmore’s book is now in its forth edition as she does full justice to her subject. Celebrating 25 years since its first publication, new material in this edition evidences psychosynthesis and the application of the approach to performance coaching and youth work… This book is straightforward and a good introduction to psychosynthesis. (Trudi Dargan, Counsellor)
