Some Collected Works of Dr. Roberto Assagioli, M.D.

This volume of the Collected Works of Dr. Roberto Assagioli, M.D., contains extracts from his books, essays, interviews and conferences given at Sundial House, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK. This collection is only a small part of the psychologist’s life work, today translated in many languages, and world-wide spread. Through his pioneering work in psychosynthesis, he brought so much to our understanding, clarifying that which was formerly so obscure about the microcosm (man), and the macrocosm (cosmos, universe), psychic and physical energies. In a way, he brought light to much obscure Jewish and Christian Dogma’s, exactly the way the Jesuit Teilhard de Chardin did. The last was totally unheard in the Vatican, even avoided, but he persisted in his work.

Foreword by Philippe L. De Coster, D.D.
This volume of the Collected Works of Dr. RobertoAssagioli, M.D., contains extracts from his books, essays,interviews and conferences given at Sundial House,Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK. This collection is only asmall part of the psychologist’s life work, today translatedin many languages, and world-wide spread. Through hispioneering work in psychosynthesis, he brought so muchto our understanding, clarifying that which was formerlyso obscure about the microcosm (
man
), and the macrocosm (
cosmos,universe
), psychic and physical energies. In a way, he brought light to muchobscure Jewish and Christian Dogma’s, exactly the way the Jesuit Teilhardde Chardin did. The last was totally unheard in the Vatican, even avoided,but he persisted in his work.Especially through Carl Gustav Jung and Roberto Assagioli, we now know,that:- Psychic energies possess quantity and mass, just like physicalenergies.- As different forms of psychic work and psychic potentiality, they canbe transformed into one another.- They can be converted into physical energies and vice versa, by meansof psychological processes.Dr. Roberto Assagioli went even further than Carl Gustav Jung, he workedout another discipline, and that is psychosynthesis. However, he remainedcloser to Jung than to Freud, emphasizing that dynamic psychology shouldnot only be concerned with depth (
the unconscious),
but also with the height(
the superconscious
). And, he found that “visualization” was very useful inmaking concrete the difference between therapeutic interventions which wentdownwards into unconscious material (
mountain tops and chapels
).Assagioli’s ‘egg diagram helps to make it all clear.The view of psychosynthesis is that the subpersonalities must become awareof one another before any integration can take place, so a phase of coordination is necessary where this happens. During this phase, there areinner changes within the subpersonalities – they cease to be dominant and

exclusive, and start to take the others into account. These changes anddiscoveries make it easier for all to work together.Contemporary understanding of human functioning is rapidly tending toabandon the old notion that mind and body can be brought of as beingseparate entities and is adopting more holistic concepts, such as the soma: thetotal living, breathing, experiencing, indivisible being, whose parts cannot bemeaningful considered except in the light of the whole person. Man defineshimself by his project.The collective unconscious is neither a philosophic construct nor a religiousdogma; it is an attempt, though sometimes a primitive attempt, to present anaccurate description of the “inner world” of the psyche and its relationshipwith the outer material world. The story of the knowledge and power hiddenwithin, and the moral conflicts caused by that knowledge and powerreligiously, was to fascinate Roberto Assagioli throughout his life.When I look back 1960 ending, beginning 71’s , I feel indebted to Michal J.Eastcott and Nancy Magor, to have accepted me as co-worker with them andothers at the headquarters of both the work of Dr. Roberto Assagioli, and of the two Meditation Groups at “Sundial House”, Nevill Court, TunbridgeWells, Kent, UK represented by the two wonderful ladies. Tilla Grenier, aquite elderly lady at the time, arduously represented Sundial House’s work inBrussels (Belgium). She translated all the MGNA booklets (
 MeditationGroup for the New Age
); and partly, the CMG booklets (
Creative MeditationGroup
), continued by me and those willing to assist me. I was for the veryfirst time at Sundial House in 1971 joining the Wesak Festival. For me“Sundial House” was as for many others, a centre where creative meditationwas promoted, opening as such the New Age, where we are now in. This“New Age” is, indeed, influenced by the Laws and Principles of theKingdom of God. The life-work of Michael Eastcott can be presented instraightforward terms, namely the long journey of humankind to find andlive in the High Self., the Soul, the only true Self, the other god.Michal always worked and wrote from an open heart and an experiencedmind, her work reflecting Dr. Assagioli’s studies and Alice A. Bailey’sesotericism, infusing the personality life with the wisdom and the love of thedivine within each human soul.
