1 Every person is unique by their nature

2 Human personality is unimitable and undivideable into component parts, that is the essence of the human nature

3 Every human being has an inward potential, that can help them to change and create themselves and the surrounding world

4 Despite all the inner contradictions, human relation with themselves and the world is positive

5 Human being is free by their nature; the deep source of their freedom is their spirit

6 Human being is able to consciously control their behavior and is responsible for it

7 Human relation with the world is subjective in the main

8 Human being makes their existence meaningful by broadening and deepening their inward spiritual space; their relation with the world fills up that space with substance

9 Potential of the inner human space is equally as much deep as the one of the outer world; broadening their inward space, human being is broadening, perfecting and creating the surrounding world



1 to discover and conceive human being as the undividable whole;

2 to perceive the human unique and accept the humanity as they are;

3 to reveal the source of human self-expression and creativity;

4 not to limit ourselves with traditional explanations of the phenomenon’s of the person and the psyche;

5 to integrate our transpersonal experience, that crosses the boundaries of the conventional conscious into psychology.
