 Overview

 Key themes for the psychosynthesis coaching symposium 2021:

  1. New developments and approaches in coaching and psychology – and how these synthesise with psychosynthesis coaching; including such approaches as: systemic coaching and constellations work; somatic working and trauma; creativity and the transpersonal; mindfulness and compassion; developmental and evolutionary; neuroscience and quantum mind!
  2. Key themes in organisations and society that we engage with as coaches: e.g. polarisation and synthesis; feminine leadership; diversity and inclusion; identity and power; the climate emergency; the crisis facing young people; future leadership; resilience and well-being; the humanisation of work!
  3. What next? Where are we going as coaches? Where is the profession going? Where is leadership going? What is the call? How do we respond to the crisis?
  4. Connecting and networking – finding support, creating partnerships, engaging in dialogue and connecting internationally.  

Session descriptions

PLENARY 1

KEYNOTE PLENARY: Polarisation and synthesis in a time of crisis – Aubyn Howard

Aubyn will approach the topic of polarisation from the wider perspective of what we might mean by psychological health and wellbeing today in a VUCA world. How is individual psychological health influenced by the confluence of individual and collective elements, our own unresolved historical stuff getting caught by collective psychopathologies? How do we start the work of freeing ourselves from strong identifications and creating dialogue between the polarities underlying conflict in the world today? This isn’t just about addressing negative emergent trends in society as leaders and coaches but also about learning the art of transformation, as we reach for new syntheses in all aspects of our lives.

WORKSHOPS 1

Sue Holland Somatic Awareness and Depth of Being in the Coaching Relationship

In this experiential workshop you will be invited to slow down and listen at depth to information and signals held within our bodies that we may be unaware of, are denying, or avoiding, through mentation and distraction. What happens when we bring our full and gentle attention to ‘lived experience’ in the here and now and what might this mean for deepening the coaching relationship?

Alexandra Kitashova (virtual) – Where East meets West – coaching across cultures

How can we prepare ourselves as coaches to work internationally across very different cultures?  What are the underlying unconscious dynamics we must surface and engage with? Alexandra draws upon her own leadership experience of working with global teams in large organisations and challenges our assumptions and perceptions about how we are both similar and different, and where East meets West.

Paul Heardman Systemic constellations in a psychosynthesis coaching context

The constellations approach is increasingly popular as a way of bringing a systemic lens to coaching.  It can be a powerful way of revealing hidden dynamics, helping to go beyond the client’s initial ‘story’ to show how personal stuckness can often be signalling that something is calling for attention at other levels, including the transpersonal.  It is a holistic and radically inclusive way of working and thus blends well with psychosynthesis.  But constellations are about much more than a set of techniques.  Ultimately this is about a way of being.  Paul’s session will explore what the systemic consciousness of constellations might offer the psychosynthesis coach.

Rachel Harrison and Paul King – The Ecology of Relational Presence in Leadership and Coaching – through Embodiment Circling practices

How we embody our presence influences what is possible within the ecology of our relationships. In this deeply experiential session, we will explore the relational space, navigating both height and depth in the rich landscape of embodied presence. We will navigate the ‘I’ space and meet the ‘other’ space in very particular ways as we weave the field of possibilities and co-created reality. Through these experiences we can build our capacity as coaches and leaders to bring more of ourselves into the conversational relationship and equally create the invitation for others to show up more fully themselves. The ground between becomes a fertile multi-dimensional space of inter-steeping and mutual learning.

WORKSHOPS 2

Adrian MachonThe transformational journey using creative imagery and storytelling to deepen empowerment and Inner leadership

An opportunity to experience just a glimpse at what is a full body of Work – through one piece. Purpose: to give us the experience of working with evocative word, what it might offer. Written over many years; this deeply served my own development. At the heart of this journey is becoming composer, creator, author of our lives, authenticity, and authority.

Heather Mullin – Creativity and Imagination as Tools in Coaching

Sometimes in coaching we can get bogged down in the world of concrete goals which can limit our capacity for change and connection to purpose.  By helping clients find portals to the Abstract Mind the unconscious can be made conscious and our will can be freed, enabling true choice and connection to Self.  Be it mask making, storytelling, model work, exploring Disney, Tolkien, Harry Potter or even Mary Poppins the choice is limitless.   In this experiential session we will explore ways to bring creativity into the coaching world.  

Harriet Brooke – Systemic team coaching – the power of systemic coaching for teams and individuals

Future proofing of organisations:  how systemic team coaching can support this. In this interactive workshop we will look at:

  • what systemic team coaching is and what it is not
  • introduction of useful models that support the thinking process
  • how the model can support the development of strong collective team leadership as well as individual growth, and how systemic team coaching serves beyond the team you are working with
  • why it is so pertinent now with the climate emergency, need for individual and collective resilience,
  • the role of coach, and how supervision is key to supporting these complex engagements.

Liz Hall (virtual) – Relational mindfulness – insight and dialogue in the relational space

Many coaches have an established personal mindfulness practice and may sometimes share mindful strategies and practices with their clients where appropriate. This workshop takes mindfulness to a new level: that of relational mindfulness. We’ll explore how we can become truly and profoundly present in our coaching relationships, becoming aware of what’s emerging and unfolding moment-to-moment, for us, our clients, in the space in between and potentially in the wider system/s. We’ll explore deep listening, and how we can become better able to tap into intuition and insights. We’ll explore how we can be more resilient in relationship and better able to have courageous conversations, speaking our own truth and supporting our clients to do the same. The highly experiential session will draw on Liz’s own practice and the work of Gregory Kramer, and Emma Donaldson-Feilder amongst others.

WORKSHOPS 3

Anne Welsh – Conscious Relations for Coaches and Leaders – how group dynamics work deepens our capacity to work with leaders

This work is first about coming more fully into conscious relationship with ourselves.  With an enhanced capacity for conscious relationship there is a greater opportunity to be more fully present and available in the here and now.  This couples with an increased level of response-ability in life situations.  For participants whose working environments place them in leadership positions in relation to others, as leaders, coaches, therapeutic counsellors or psychotherapists, the possibility is released of a greater degree of inner authority both personally and professionally.  Trusting the capacity to hold both individuals and groups from a place of inner connectedness rather than external authority can, in turn, release the capacity for growth and development in both personal and professional environments.

Gordon Symons BEYOND Coaching – how psychosynthesis can take coaching to another level.

A challenging and interactive session, addressing the following themes:

Structure and Flow: What is the holding structure and what facilitates the flow?

Who’s coaching who? Which subpersonalities are in play in your coaching sessions?

Coaching as beautiful work: Where is beauty to be found in coaching?

Beyond doing and transactional relating: The coach’s Tri-focal vision

Non-attachment to outcome: does this key element of psychosynthesis therapy have a place in psychosynthesis coaching?

Peter Stewart – The creative path and coaching – how creative work connects us with inner purpose and the rest of nature.

This experiential workshop will focus on Assagioli’s writings about creativity including writing, art and music and will explore how these can be used to connect with inner purpose and the outer world of nature.

Sarah Howard and Paul Clarke The Polarity of the Masculine & Feminine in Leadership: An Inward Exploration of Psychosynthesis 

In this session Paul Clarke and Sarah Howard will look at how gender blurring and conditioning can limit or even distort the available power and impact of leaders. They will show you how stepping into the body deepens your leadership coaching practice and powerfully unpacks limiting conditioning for both you and your client. Through this we take a step in the direction of our purpose, bringing value and meaning into our lives. We become healthier and more productive. We become more creative and innovative. We have better relationships and are better at co-creating.

PLENARY 2

PLENARY: Panel – Staying European with the EPA and the EMCC.  Keith Silvester as Chair of EFPP, Karen Rawden introducing the new EPA, John Crossan representing 5DL and a guest speaker from EMCC.

Keith Silvester will chair this panel session in which each participant will speak for a few minutes about the organisations they are representing and what they offer, before opening up to questions from the floor. This is an opportunity to explore developments and connections within the wider psychosynthesis community and raise issues of membership, accreditation and regulation across the coaching profession, within a European and even global context.

PLENARY 3

PLENARY WORKSHOP: Where are we now as coaches? Where to now with coaching? Anne Welsh and Aubyn Howard

Reflecting upon what we have learned from the first day, we turn the groups’ attention to where we are as coaches and where the coaching profession is within the context of a rapidly changing and turbulent world.  What can psychosynthesis bring to this?  How can psychosynthesis adapt and evolve in response to the emergent crises?

PRACTICUM 1

Aubyn Howard – Polarisation and synthesis – methods for working with leaders

In this experimental session Aubyn picks up from where the plenary on the first day leaves off and takes participants through a series of steps with exercises for coaches and leaders working with polarity, polarisation and synthesis at individual, group and collective levels.

Heather Mullin Creativity and Imagination as Tools in Coaching – practice session

Sometimes in coaching we can get bogged down in the world of concrete goals which can limit our capacity for change and connection to purpose.  By helping clients find portals to the Abstract Mind the unconscious can be made conscious and our will can be freed, enabling true choice and connection to Self.  Be it mask making, storytelling, model work, exploring Disney, Tolkien, Harry Potter or even Mary Poppins the choice is limitless.   In this experiential session we will explore ways to bring creativity into the coaching world.  

Paul Clarke Love and Fear in our dance with Complexity – a guided exploration

In this session we will explore our relationship with patterns of complexity within ourselves and in the systems we are part of. We constantly encounter complexity in our lives, whether or not we recognise it as such, in our relationships, in our politics, our finances, our workplaces, our hobbies and passions, our social and wellbeing systems, in our interactions with the natural world including climate change and global pandemic. And, above all, in every moment we encounter the complexity of ourselves.

Paul Elliott – Racial justice and equality in coaching – research, reflection and dialogue

A draft paper is circulating by Charmain Roche and Jonathan Passmore, titled Manifesto for Racial Justice and Equity in Coaching.  It includes recent research carried out by the authors as well as some proposed ways forward for our profession.  How do we engage with and respond to this call, within the wider context of what is happening in the world today?  Paul will lead a session of reflection and dialogue that seeks to include all voices and perspectives within the psychosynthesis context of Unity in Diversity. Paul will send a copy of the draft paper to anyone that is interested in attending the session.  

PRACTICUM 2

Dr Alice Bell – The Future Leaders Forum – activation session

‘How can psychosynthesis be brought more into the world in support of developing young people and emergent leaders?’. In February this year we held a progressive online forum that started to explore this question and we were heartened by your support. This follow-on session is designed to develop our discussions on subjects such as, ‘training young people to coach each other’ and ‘mentoring future leader development’. As we re-engage with such themes we would like to activate some specific projects and decide on the next actions for these. Newcomers are welcome. Alice will facilitate the session making sure we connect into the spirit of youth and are committed to involving young people fully as we take the projects forward. We will send out more detail about the themes and projects to be explored before the symposium.


Jasenka Gojšić
Freeing the Will, creating Joy – an exploration workshop

“Since the outcome of successful willing is the satisfaction of one’s needs, we can see that the act of will is essentially joyous. And the realization of the self, or more exactly of being a self (whose most intrinsic function, as we have seen, is that of willing), gives a sense of freedom, of power, of mastery which is profoundly joyous.” Roberto Assagioli: Act of Will

To learn how to help others to enjoy life more fully is the main reason I am studying psychosynthesis. The free Will is the topic of my Master thesis. I measure the quality of my life with a presence of joy, and in my case it has always been connected with me being authentic and free-willed. Therefore, I decided to explore the practice of coaching and to invite you to a conversation with colleagues about freeing the Will as the essence of psychosynthesis coaching. Sharing examples of our successes of freeing the Will through small steps towards authenticity – what do we know about it, what can we share as good practice? How to recognise where the Will is stuck in a client’s life? How do our authenticity and free Will influence the coaching process? Could you, please, ponder these questions and bring your answers to the session?

Sarah Howard and Rowan Conway “The Polarity of the Masculine & Feminine in Leadership: Practically Applying Psychosynthesis to Create Sustainable Change in the World”

Sarah Howard, is joined by guest speaker Rowan Conway, Policy Fellow and Head of IIPP’s Mission Oriented Innovation Network and Faculty lead on Transformation By Design at UCL. Rowan brings a wealth of experience working with global policy-making institutions in co-creating, defining and testing new ideas about economics and the broader political economy. In this session Sarah and Rowan practically explore the difficulties of creating a sustainable global future and how psychosynthesis coaching can support the integration of polarised viewpoints to co-create sustainable step change in the world.

Anne Welsh and Sue Holland – Awareness of Self in supervision – attuning to emergence

Awareness of Self in supervision emerges through creative enquiry into the not yet known. How do we consider the parts within the whole? As we relax our mindsets of what we think we know or should know deeper perspective is revealed.

We will use some simple tools to relax our rational minds and be receptive to the emerging field, leading to a deeper sense of Self and wholeness.
