A popular and practical introduction to psychosynthesis-the empowering psychology of self-actualization and enhanced personal growth.

This book outlines a specific programme of easy-to-perform exercises that form the basis of a total system for psychological and spiritual growth. Drawing on his own case histories as a therapist, the author describes how the reader may resolve seemingly impossible conflicts, redirect aggressive impulses, awaken intuitive and creative powers, develop a strength of will and the sense of personal freedom, and capacity to love.



“Lucidly written, Piero Ferrucci’s What We May Be brings the enlightenment of psychosynthesis to the American people in a most compelling and delighting way. This is no cheap illusory fix. It’s very real and elegantly down-to-earth. The publication of this book certifies that our consciousness is rising.”
–M. Scott Peck, M.D. author of The Road Less Traveled

“This book is a boon to psychosynthesis, a popular transformation technique developed decades agao by Italian psychiastrist Roberto Assagioli.”
–Marilyn Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy

“A most illuminating and important book.”
–Yehudi Menuhin

What We May Be is no ordinary pop psychology book. A gentle flow in the writing adds dimension to this presentation of the psychology of psychosynthesis.”

“”Assagioli’s work, a fruitful marriage of spirit and psychology, is faithfully and clearly presented in this volume. The pragmatic simplicity of the writing reflects Piero Ferrucci’s deep understanding of the methods.”
–Ram Dass

“One of the best do-it-yourself manuals to date.”

“The perfect companion for anyone embarking on a journey of psychological and spiritual growth. In my works I continue to use many of the techniques Dr. Ferrucci describes so beautifully.”
–Stephanie Matthers-Simonton, Getting Well Again
