Kabbalah, Assagioli And Transpersonal Psychology
I have been reading several most interesting chapters on the thinking of Roberto Assagioli, the father of Transpersonal Psychology, as related to Kabbalah. These appear in “Opening the Inner Gates: New Paths in Kabbalah and Psychology” edited by Edward Hoffman. One chapter entitled “Psychosynthesis and Kabbalah” is a comparative study between Assagioli’s “Egg diagram” and the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. It is certainly most interesting with lots of practical information, but it is in another chapter entitled “Jewish Meditation: Healing Ourselves and Our Relationship” that one realizes the influence of Kabbalistic thinking had on Assagioli. Here is a quote for your interest and perusal from that very exciting chapter written by Sheldon Z. Kramer.
