Mysticism

"Sheldon Kramer, the American author and psychologist, researching Assagioli's library in Florence, found papers written by Assagioli on Judaism and Jewish mysticism. Most striking are writings which mention a psychospiritual description of the psyche that exactly matches that in the Kabbalah" [Roberto Assagioli The Kabbalist, http://www.willparfitt.com/assag.html].

--------------------

The New Age

"[The] New Age derives important inspirations from the psychologists Carl Gustav Jung, Erich Fromm, ... Roberto Assagioli" [http://www.convivium-roma.it/English/eng_doc/New_Age.doc].

--------------------

Alice Bailey

"Dr. Roberto Assagioli, the father of Transpersonal Psychology ... was a personal emissary of Alice Bailey in Europe" [www.conspiracyarchive.com/NewAge/new_age_beliefs.htm].

Alice Bailey wrote: "my most beloved friends [include] Dr. Assagioli, [whom] I love devotedly, ... There are few people in the world as close to me as they are, and I depend upon them for counsel and understanding" [Autobiography of Alice A. Bailey, Chapter III].

----------------

That Assagioli remained a seeker is shown through the books on the library shelves in his study in Florence - there is a book by Carlos Castaneda, for instance, from the early 70s, not long before he died.
