The Core Evolu­tion Train­ing is based on con­tem­por­ary sci­entif­ic re­search on the in­ter­ac­tion of body and mind, the found­a­tions of body-ori­ented ther­apy, fam­ily sys­tems, neur­os­cience, trauma the­or­ies, in­cor­por­at­ing west­ern and east­ern teach­ings.

The Core Evolu­tion Train­ing ad­dresses the whole­ness of the 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 a per­son faces to freely un­fold these qual­it­ies and move to­ward self-real­iz­a­tion – per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally.

The Core Evolu­tion Train­ings ad­dress our mul­ti­di­men­sion­al real­ity. Its the­or­ies and prac­tice de­veloped out of our ex­per­i­ences and in­sights from the fol­low­ing ap­proaches:

  • Depth-psy­cho­logy and body-ori­ented ther­apy, with in­di­vidu­als, couples and groups
  • Gestalt, So­mat­ic, Hu­man­ist­ic, Transper­son­al, Ex­ist­en­tial and In­teg­ral Psy­cho­logy
  • At­tach­ment and Bond­ing the­or­ies,
  • Trauma Teach­ing, incl. Devel­op­ment­al and Shock Trauma,
  • Fam­ily-, Gen­er­a­tion­al- and Na­tion­al Trauma and oth­ers
  • Fam­ily sys­tems, fam­ily ther­apy and work with con­stel­la­tions
  • Af­fect­ive, cog­nit­ive and so­cial neur­os­cience and the de­vel­op­ment of the So­cial Brain
  • Be­ha­vi­or­al ap­proaches and Sys­tems The­ory
  • Eastern and Western Teach­ings and Sham­an­ic Ap­proaches
  • Psycho­so­mat­ics, Subtle En­er­gies and Dreams
  • and our own ori­gin­al re­search on the en­er­get­ic dy­nam­ics of emo­tion­al and so­mat­ic pro­cesses

Core Evolu­tion ex­plores and works with:

  • The phys­ic­al body – its struc­ture, and the dy­nam­ic ex­pres­sion through move­ment;
  • Emo­tions and Feel­ings – how we pro­cess our inner and outer im­pulses;
  • The Mind – in un­der­stand­ing, know­ing, being aware and struc­tur­ing our think­ing;
  • The Will – the fac­ulty that gives en­ergy its dir­ec­tion;
  • Ex­pand­ing the lim­it­a­tion of the per­son­al­ity, real­iz­ing choices;
  • Form­ing our in­ten­tions in life, ac­cess­ing in­sight, in­spir­a­tion and vis­ion;
  • Practice in Being – Aware­ness and Mind­ful­ness;
  • The Field of Con­scious­ness – al­low­ing us the per­cep­tion of the to­tal­ity of ex­ist­ence, which is per­ceived and ex­pressed as the flow of love and ex­per­i­enced as es­sence, unity and one­ness

Core Evolu­tion teaches many thera­peut­ic tools for trans­form­a­tion to:

  • Find the inner ground of know­ing your­self and re­late to oth­ers from this true self;
  • Safely move pat­terns of pro­tect­ive with­hold­ing into en­rich­ing cre­ativ­ity;
  • Guide the ex­pres­sion of feel­ings in a safe and mind­ful way, in­clud­ing Trauma In­teg­ra­tion;
  • In­crease the ca­pa­city for self-reg­u­la­tion and fur­ther emo­tion­al in­de­pend­ence;
  • Ex­plore, un­der­stand and if needed re­struc­ture the many as­pects of Self;
  • Deep­en the trust in life and sup­port the un­fold­ing po­ten­tial of a per­son;
  • Em­body your spir­itu­al nature;
  • Center in Mind­ful­ness.

What is the be­ne­fit this pro­gram can give you?
Our the­ory is at the cut­ting edge of sci­ence. Our psy­cho­dy­nam­ic ex­per­i­en­tial prac­tice is based on over 40 years of ex­per­i­ence.

We are one of the lead­ing train­ings in teach­ing the de­vel­op­ment of Per­son­al­ity Re­ac­tion Pat­terns™. We guide you to ex­per­i­ence, sense and un­der­stand the form­a­tion of your body, how you struc­ture your feel­ings and your think­ing and how these pro­cesses flow into the un­fold­ing of your mind with its per­son­al ego at­ti­tudes and at­tach­ments. These at­tach­ments and res­ult­ing bond­ing pat­terns are mostly un­con­scious and po­ten­tially lim­it­ing the free flow in life. By mak­ing them con­scious, they be­come choices.

In the Core Evolu­tion Train­ing you learn how we or­gan­ize our self, to track en­er­gies, to read the story in the body and you learn, how spe­cif­ic mo­ments in life in­flu­ence de­cision-mak­ing pro­cesses and the ca­pa­city to re­late and to com­mu­nic­ate.
This pro­gram provides the teach­ing for un­der­stand­ing these pro­cesses and of­fers psy­cho­lo­gic­al, emo­tion­al and so­mat­ic in­ter­ven­tions as tools to ac­cess the re­sources of a per­son to sup­port the in­teg­ra­tion of changes.

The es­sen­tial teach­ing of Core Evolu­tion is in­teg­rat­ive. We unify know­ledge and in­tu­ition, sci­ence and the wis­dom of the heart, psy­cho­logy and philo­sophy. We ex­plore the in­ter­con­nec­ted­ness of life pro­cesses as they mani­fest in the unity of body, emo­tions, mind, will, and con­scious­ness.

This Cer­ti­fic­a­tion Train­ing uniquely en­com­passes teach­ing and per­son­al pro­cess, which en­ables par­ti­cipants not only to study and learn, but also to ex­per­i­ence and prac­tice the work. In ex­per­i­en­cing the teach­ing, par­ti­cipants will de­vel­op a deep­er un­der­stand­ing of their own growth and com­pet­ence in the pro­fes­sion­al ap­plic­a­tion.

For Europe:
The In­ter­na­tion­al In­sti­tute for Core Evolu­tion & CoreSoma is an ac­cred­ited* In­sti­tute by the EABP and EAP. A com­plete train­ing in Core Evolu­tion leads to cer­ti­fic­a­tion in In­teg­rat­ive, Body-Ori­en­ted and Mind­ful­ness-Centered Psy­cho­ther­apy, which al­lows to be­come a full mem­ber in the EABP and to apply for the European Cer­ti­fic­ate of Psy­cho­ther­apy (ECP).
