The Psychosynthesis and Education Trust (The Psychosynthesis Trust) has a social purpose reflected in our status as a charitable educational trust. Our purpose stems from a belief that personal development and self-enquiry supports collective evolution for a kinder, more compassionate and connected world. We are committed to bringing benefit to the individual and collective through teaching Psychosynthesis and supporting ongoing enquiry into psychospiritual development. We value wholeness, enquiry, love, will and responsibility and these values shape our culture and what we do.
The Trust operates its training programmes, counselling services, public events and room rental business from its building at 92-94 Tooley Street. The Trust has an annual income of close to £1 million which primarily comes from a combination of student fees and room rentals.
The Psychosynthesis Trust is at an exciting phase of its evolution. We intend to scale our work in order to help to catalyse an accelerated shift for human consciousness. And as part of this we are looking to recruit new Board members to help us grow our important work.
More information about The Trust can be found on our website.
The Psychosynthesis Trust Board is currently comprised of 7 members and is convened by interim co-chairs. The Board is evolving its structure to become more agile, decentralised and project focused. We are looking for new Trustees to join us in developing the Board's potential. We are open to receiving applications from people who are seeking to develop their leadership on a Board as well as those more seasoned individuals who have previous experience as a Trustee.
We are seeking people with a variety of skills, experience and perspectives including:
- Organisational development and scaling
- People and culture development
- Psycho-spiritual teaching and education and/or experience of psychosynthesis
- Marketing and communications
- Finance and commercial skills
- People who are visionary, relational, focused on impact and who are excited about the Trust's work
All roles are voluntary (with travel expenses reimbursed) and are for an initial three year term following a trial period.
Expected time commitment evolves around quarterly Board meetings and input into regular sub-committee groups which we estimate to be about 10 days a year.
Our Trustees carry out their duties in accordance with our Board Charter, which is provided in Appendix 3.
We recognise that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in our Board and we want to change this. We are particularly keen to receive applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic people, people with disabilities, people who identify with being LGBTQIA, people who have a mental health condition and people who identify with being marginalised (or have in the past).
