2017-18 Psychosynthesis Training

The Will To Grow: Transformational Life Coaching

Fully Accredited Life Coach Training Program

Hosted at the beautiful Hallelujah Farm Retreat Center

For more information on our in-person progam, visit the Synthesis Center North East website

Our Level I in-person training is moving to Hallelujah Farm in rural New Hampshire, five minutes from Brattleboro, Vermont. The beautiful setting can be seen in the photos below.


For the first time we will offer a residential option for those who prefer to stay at the farm during the trainings. Lodging and meals will be offered to those who choose this option at a reasonable rate. Lunches will be included in the training and students and staff will eat together to deepen the connections of the group. Detailed information available on our training page.

• Visit our You-tube channel (yep, that's right, believe it or not!). We have a few videos up, including Didi's plenary speech in Italy, Tom Yeomans and Angel Santiago in their key note speech in Brattleboro, a brief video on the egg diagram and an unfinished video of Matt Harding dancing with us in Amherst! More to come.

Interested in psychosynthesis?
Talk to the Trainers!


Psychosynthesis is founded on "the perception of the light
immanent in the human soul and in the whole of creation," says its founder, Roberto Assagioli. For over 100 years this wisdom has guided this spiritual psychology. Practiced today, psychosynthesis
is applied in many fields as a form of guiding. If you are inspired to guide, as coach or therapist, teacher or body worker, minister or parent, or as a seeker yourself, consider joining The Synthesis Center as it moves into its 40th year of training. Both the in-person and teleconference trainings are powerful personal, professional and spiritual journeys. They lead, as well, to certification as a Psychosynthesis Life Coach and internationally recognized Board Certified Coach accreditation. We invite you to have a conversation with Didi Firman or Jon Schottland, program trainers, about this path to right livelihood and personal well being. To schedule a one on one conversation, contact We look forward to sharing some time with you.
