Conversation between John Firman and Roberto Assagioli – 1973
In this talk with some of his student, Roberto Assagioli is going deep into his consideration about the nature of the Higher Self. He discriminates between the Self and its influence in the superconscious area.
We find a permanent and real Self, behind thoughts, feelings and senseimpressions. This center of pure consciousness and will – the subject – act as an unifying center and create the personal and transpersonal psychosynthesis.
A brilliant article regarding the difference between superconscious energies and The Self – the immovable point of pure consciousness and Will. Clear definitions of the “I” and the process of Self-realisation.
What is it that distinguishes the psychosynthetic approach to group work from other kinds of approaches? This
is the question which we have set in this paper-a question which it would be premature to attempt to answer in a
definitive way, but toward which we can begin to make some preliminary probes, if only to stimulate
discussion. Our tactic will be to analyze certain fundamental principles and premises of such a group rather than
to concentrate on the description of specific techniques, though some of the latter will be referred to for
purposes of illustration.
