Core Evolution®

Living the Pulsation of Life

International Institute for Core Evolution® and CoreSoma®
Directors: Siegmar Gerken PhD, ECP, HP and Cornelia Gerken CMP, ECP, HP


Core Evolu­tion is an in­teg­rat­ive, re­la­tion­al, psy­cho­dy­nam­ic, body-ori­ented and mind­ful­ness-centered ther­apy - an in­nov­at­ive ap­proach to a Whole Per­son Psy­cho­logy based on Mind­ful­ness and rooted in the Essence of Being. Its found­a­tion is the com­pre­hens­ive un­der­stand­ing that es­sence and life en­ergy are ex­pressed through our Core - the cen­ter of the in­di­vidu­ated uni­ver­sal life en­ergy, a well­spring of heal­ing, joy, cre­ativ­ity and wis­dom.

Core Evolu­tion ad­dresses the pulsa­tion of life in each of us. Life ex­presses it­self in pulsa­tion. Every breath, every heart­beat, every move­ment, every thought rep­res­ents the flow of life in us. If this flow is dis­tor­ted or re­stric­ted, we limit our per­cep­tion and ex­pres­sion in life. There­fore we re­cog­nize and sup­port the in­ter­con­nec­ted­ness on all levels of our ex­ist­ence.

Core Evolu­tion ad­dresses the whole­ness of a per­son – the per­son­al qual­it­ies and unique po­ten­tial. From this trust in our in­her­ent power of love, good­ness, cre­ativ­ity and ca­pa­city for self-heal­ing, we ad­dress the obstacles and lim­it­a­tions a per­son faces to freely un­fold these qual­it­ies and move to­ward self-real­iz­a­tion – per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally.

Core Evolution Summer Intensive -
The Power and Mindfulness of Relating™

Join us and re­ju­ven­ate in a per­son­al re­treat while deep­en­ing your learn­ing in an in­spir­ing en­vir­on­ment with won­der­ful people in a beau­ti­ful villa in Tuscany!

In this ex­per­i­en­tial re­treat you find more clar­ity, in­teg­ra­tion and en­ergy for trans­form­a­tion. By ex­per­i­en­cing this flow, you open to the love for your­self and oth­ers, which deep­ens heart com­mu­nic­a­tion, in­tim­acy and au­then­ti­city. You re­late, com­mu­nic­ate and cre­ate from a place of har­mony, well-being, peace, alive­ness and a sense of ful­fill­ment. read more
