The Power of Life and the Will of Your Heart™
A Core Evolution Intensive

Integrative, Body-Oriented and Mindfulness-Centered

with: Siegmar Gerken

Core Evolution moves beyond the common goals of therapy. It establishes a unified and holistic process that connects the body, emotions, cognitive capacity, mind, will and the spiritual self into a unity, which expresses the total reality of the person.

As a spiritual and body-oriented psychology we reach all levels of existence by first working with the physical body through movement, touch and breathing, to reach and begin to transform patterns of protection that were established in our earlier developmental years and to open fixed belief systems. This creates space for your original path to unfold.

Activating and allowing the flow of life provides the safety to expand your experiences, to reach out, share, express and embrace life in its fullest. It is only through experience, that we really come to know ourselves.

A new found freedom of choice leads to an awareness that you are the co-creator of your life. When your mind, body and heart communicate in harmony, then you allow the natural flow of Being. This is where transformation begins and from where you will live with passion and compassion for your own life, the life of others and the world.

Besides empathic listening, heartfelt sharing, individual and group processing, movement, dance and expression, dreamwork, meditation and practicing the principles of Mindfulness the work will also include: read more

Beyond the Trauma - Live Your Essence

Experiential Teaching Workshop

with: Siegmar Gerken PhD, ECP, HP

Core Evolution Integrative • Body-Oriented • Mindfulness-Centered Therapy

In his Integrative Trauma Therapy Training you will learn the interactive approach in recognizing and differentiating the multi-layered tapestry of traumatic experiences.

Traumatic situations in early or later phases of life can have a strong influence on the forming forces in the personal development and the coping mechanism of how a person lives the daily life. Traumatic experiences are then often becoming ‘frozen patterns of history’. These patterns manifest on the emotional, somatic and cognitive level of our life and limit our capacity for harmonious self-regulation, secure attachment, deep contact to ourselves and to the natural free expression of ones life-force. read more

Mindfulness, Zen and Leadership

Recognizing Limitations • Discovering New Options Activating Resources • Initiating Changes

with: Siegmar Gerken PhD, ECP, HP and Zen Master Roshi Rei Ho Hatlapa MA

in German with English translation

Google, Apple, Goldman Sachs, Intel as well as other well-known companies, many business schools and MBA programs offer courses on mindfulness. At the World Economic Forum 2015, mindfulness received special attention. In a reduced form it is then often used as a stress management approach.

However, some executives are becoming more and more aware that changing the working condition is also a matter of creating a new, healthy and dynamic environment. An environment in which self-awareness, decision-making ability, renewal, enthusiasm, compassion, courage, flexibility and resilience are promoted competencies for the maintenance, innovation and growth of successful and ethically responsible companies and organizations. read more

Mindfulness, Zen, Psychotherapy and the Will of Your Heart™

with: Siegmar Gerken PhD, ECP, HP and Zen Master Roshi Rei Ho Hatlapa MA

in German with English translation

This seminar offers a deep understanding of the concepts of Mindfulness as practice of observing one’s inner experience, fully aware and non-judgmental and also offers tools to transfer these insights into positive actions for the personal and professional life.

Gregory Bateson described: "Mind is the essence of being alive. It is a pattern of organization.”

With Zen and the body-oriented and mindfulness-centered approach of Core Evolution we will explore how we structure this organization and how we develop reactions patterns that can then be triggered by internal or external events. read more

Core Evolution Summer Intensive
The Power and Mindfulness of Relating™

Live Your Essence with the Will of Your Heart and Celebrate Life

with: Siegmar & Cornelia Gerken

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!

Jiddu Krishnamurti mentioned that relationship is a process of self-revelation. Therefore, whether you choose to be single or to be in relationship, you need to relate and to communicate.In our development we formed working models that act like filters, through which we perceive ‘our’ reality. These attitudes influence our emotions, movements, thinking, behavior and beliefs - and with that we also structure our protections. They fulfilled an important need in our early development but by perpetuating them into adulthood may limit us to create and lead a life we desire. read more

Yoga, Somatic Awareness and Core Evolution - An Inquiry into Being

with: Siegmar Gerken PhD, ECP, HP and Nina Vukas

All our life experiences take part in structuring and shaping our Body-Mind Field. Especially painful or traumatic situations, that could not be resolved, still reside deep in our system. As a Yoga practitioner you most likely have experienced a sudden release of emotions during or after Yoga practice - this can range from sadness and tears coming ‘out of nowhere”, to agitation, anxiety, anger, fear or regression into sensitive early developmental moments.

This can happen with many more body-mind stimulating practices, because some protection patterns are challenged, or with advanced Asana practices, overheating the body-mind with a fast paced practice, intensive Pranayama, some visualization and meditation practices, etc.. In Yoga we often see this as an involuntary release, which can be to an extend beneficial for some, however, for others it can lead to a physical and emotional imbalance or dis-regulation. This is why some yogic practices are called advanced and were traditionally only taught by an experienced teacher individually to a student. read more

The Pulsation of Life

Embodiment, Personal Development and the Power of Love

with: Siegmar Gerken

We all have the qualities to lead a life of fulfillment and Self-Realization. However, often these qualities cannot fully unfold due to past or present life events. They shape our reactions and behavior and often limit our free and authentic expression in the world. The resulting patterns are often hard to change by oneself. read more
