Presented By: Victoria Stevens
Saturday, April 15, 2023 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (Pacific Time)
Join AOS Professor, Victoria Stevens, PhD for this all day, Zoom experiential on Psychosynthesis: Visualization, Creative Imagination and The Expansion of Consciousness.
What can you expect?
This Psychosynthesis workshop will provide an opportunity to enrich and deepen your personal, professional and spiritual development. It will also provide you with a theoretical framework and exercises that can be integrated into your work with clients who present with both psychological and spiritual concerns by using the guided imagery, symbolic artwork and mindfulness techniques.
This live Zoom experience consists of a combination of experiential exercises, theory, and at home journal reflection. Through a process of guided imagery, symbolic artwork, journaling, and inner engagement with our true Self, we can begin to experience and live in the awareness of all we are, and the fullness of all we may be.
Who is this course for?
This AHA, highly experiential, Psychosynthesis Transpersonal Workshop is specifically designed for hypnotherapists and alternative health practitioners who wish to add depth, meaning, and a wholistic spiritual understanding to their current discipline. Due to this course being experiential, it is also an opportunity to deepen your own inner journey.
Bonus: In addition to this live on Zoom seminar you will have access to a live on Zoom Q&A with Victoria Stevens PhD, two weeks after the workshop – Saturday, April 29, 2023 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM (Pacific Time). This allows you the opportunity for more questions and discussion after you have had time to fully experience the exercises and principals.
Bonus: In addition to the live seminar, we will also provide you with 180 days access to the Zoom recording from that day’s live on Zoom seminar. This allows you to review and study the course on streaming video after the live event.
The Science of the Spirit
Founded in the early 20th Century by the Italian Psychiatrist, Dr. Roberto Assagioli, Psychosynthesis is a theory, a process, and a practice of living that facilitates an opening into the transpersonal dimension through the awareness of purpose, meaning, values, and spirituality.
Nicknamed “The Scientist of the Spirit.” Dr. Assogioli’s Psychosynthesis, combines Eastern and Western thought to promote psycho-spiritual transformation and integration. Grounded within the seven core experiences and concepts of Psychosynthesis, this workshop will cover major theoretical aspects of this model with a focus on practical application in therapeutic work with clients and personal work for each practitioner.
Spirituality in this context is often used to describe the deeper essence of who we are, the innate part of us that continuously calls us towards growth and wholeness. This is the Spiritual Self, also known as the Deeper or Higher Self (capital S in Psychosynthesis). The Self is made up of Will and Consciousness – it is our life force. When connected to our deeper essence, it provides us with renewed vitality, a way of understanding and finding value, meaning and purpose in life.
