Inner Orchestra

My presentation in the Logosynthesis Summer Conference 2022 will be about ‘The Inner Orchestra’.

We all play many different ‘roles’ during the day, and during our lives. Sometimes on purpose, but mostly unconsciously. Psychosynthesis, developed by Roberto Assagioli, uses the metaphor of an ‘inner orchestra’, to develop our understanding of many ‘sub-personalities’ playing roles in our lives, as if they were ‘us’, even without us knowing.

In this metaphor the Composer is Essence, the musicians (the sub-personalities) are playing the music, and the Conductor of the orchestra is the ‘Self’, being aware of both the composition of Essence and of all the different possibilities of the members of the orchestra.

For a great deal, we are not aware of these inner dynamics of playing roles. We act and react in different dynamic systems in ways that are not always to our profit and block our development as human beings. Logosynthesis offers a beautiful tool to create balance in the inner orchestra: retrieving our energy that is stuck in what we do not need anymore and removing the energy that does not belong to us. So that we can act and react to our surroundings in the best possible way.

Group dynamics

Being in groups can be a challenge, but groups can also be a brilliant mirror for recognizing patterns standing in our way for fulling our mission in this life on earth.

Being in groups can be a challenge, but groups can also be a brilliant mirror for recognizing patterns standing in our way for fulling our mission in this life on earth.

As a Self, coming into this world, we make our first experiences with groups in our family of origin. Here we learn about belonging and boundaries – who belongs and who does not. In the parent-child relationship we make first experiences with hierarchical differences and gender differences, later we add the more equal sibling relationships, which are also characterized by older or younger siblings. In this family dynamic, the foundations are laid for the three dimensions belonging, authority and intimacy. When we go into groups later in life, we have unconscious expectations of recreating our family of origin, albeit that it may have been influenced also by experiences within groups over the years since childhood.

By illuminating and experiencing the three dimensions of belonging, authority and intimacy in our group at the Summer Conference, each of us can recognize disturbing patterns from early life and the connected triggers and solve these to get more connected to essence and more free to fulfil our mission. We can also experience what changes in our group as a whole at the Summer Conference, when each of us solves triggers.
