Core Energetics was founded by Dr. John Pierrakos and is based upon his work with Alexander Lowen (cofounder of Bioenergetics), theories of Wilhelm Reich, and incorporates the Pathwork lectures.
Our work is based on the basic premises that emotional conflicts which are unresolved (and often repressed) are held in chronically tense muscles and tissue. Chronically tense muscles hold negativity – unconscious negative intent and negative beliefs. Part of the healing is to express the inhibited feelings so that the impulse locked in the muscles can be released.
We work on many different levels : with body, emotions, mind, will and spirit.
“This training has changed my life. Most honest, beautiful, releasing, empowering and rewarding thing I’ve ever done. I can’t say enough about the work.”
“A person who doesn’t breathe deeply reduces the life of his body. If he doesn’t move freely, he restricts the life of his body. If he doesn’t feel fully, he narrows the life of his body. And if his self-expression is constricted, he limits the life of his body.”
