PRF Archives: Newsletters and Seminars

In the period from 1958 till 1974, the Psychosynthesis Research Foundation (PRF) published a regular newsletter for people interested in spiritual growth. Many newsletters offer an update regarding the growth of psychosynthesis around the world and milestones for psychosynthesis in the USA. These newsletters offer an excellent quick review of these early years. As most newsletters consist of only a few pages, all the newsletters are combined in a single PDF file. To find a particular newletter, after opening the PDF file, use the left side bar index.

PRF also organized monthly seminars and invited local speakers who were interested in psychosynthesis to cover a broad range of subjects, always followed by a lively discussion. Transcripts of these seminars have been preserved and are listed below.
