The challenge of facing the present: awakening our spirit
of transformation in times of deep changes
Sätra Brunn, Sweden
AUGUST 6-10, 2014


As psychosynthesis therapists we meet people who battle with pain, crisis and failure of the existing ways of living. We benefit from sharing new ideas in the framework of psychosynthesis and new applications of the psychosynthesis tradition. This is the aim of the Summer School – and to meet, connect and have fun together!

Psychosynthesis holds a key to open us to the deeper sense of what it can mean to be a human being, to find our true potential, our will to serve and our capacity for loving all around us. This is what is needed for the society to be resilient in the midst of change, inside and outside.

The Summer School is open to practitioners and trainees within the Psychosynthesis field. It will take place at Sätra Brunn Resort, in the countryside northwest of Stockholm. Sätra Brunn has a long healing tradition with its famous spa, reputed for its uplifting and curing effect and to which people have come for their well-being for 300 years. You have free access to the spa and its relaxing facilities, with warm saunas and both outdoor and indoor pools. Sätra Brunn is also known for its fine kitchen using only local delicacies.


We are happy to present a rich program including organised yoga and/or meditation in the early mornings before breakfast, morning seminars, afternoon workshops, and evening programs with a cultural touch. The last evening is set aside for a party, an open stage for you to challenge yourself and for other surprises! The conference will start Wednesday at 18.00 and ends Sunday at 13.00.
The morning seminars run each day from Thursday to Sunday and group members will stay the same for all four mornings. You choose your seminar when sending your application to your local center. The workshops will take place during afternoons, and will be chosen at the venue.
