Kenneth Sørensen’s book The Seven Types provides a comprehensive introduction to psychosynthesis typology.
You will learn:
How to discover your dominant type at each of the five psychological levels, namely your soul type, personality type, thinking type, feeling type and body type.
How to integrate your five-fold typology and become an influential person who can make a difference in the world.
How to apply the Seven Types in a counselling and coaching practice through the seven counselling strategies and styles.
How to work with a typology profiling tool so you can discover and validate a person's dominant types.
The Seven Types is a contemporary typological model based on the work of Roberto Assagioli and the ancient wisdom of the Seven Rays, with additional elements drawn from modern psychology, including the work of Ken Wilber.
The deeper learnings:
In developing the Seven Types, Kenneth Sørensen and his colleagues have drawn upon years of research and practical experience in their roles in counselling, psychotherapy, coaching and mentoring.
The Seven Types is based on the fundamental principle that everything in the universe is comprised of energy. This energy expresses itself in seven ways — like the colours of a rainbow — giving us seven types of energy (dynamic, sensitive, mental, creative, analytical, dedicated, practical).
We are all comprised of these energies, with each of us manifesting different combinations of the seven energies. Indeed, the Seven Types posits that the human psyche consists of five psychological levels — body, feeling, thought, personality, soul — and that a different energy is dominant at each level, giving each of us a unique combination of types: our own psychological DNA. This book shows how we can identify our five dominant types and work with their qualities so that we may become all we can be.
The book also offers practical advice on how to work with the seven types in a counselling setting, describing seven strategies and styles that will help the counsellor tune into the client’s energies with empathy.
The Seven Types highlights a long-neglected aspect of psychosynthesis theory, and offers a set of tools that can help us all on the path to self-awareness and self-realisation.
