Ways to work with us
About our work
With over 40 years experience in the fields of Humanistic, Transpersonal and Somatic Psychology, as well as psychodynamic and behavioral approaches, we naturally address all professional topics of early Childhood Bonding, Attachment, further Personal Development, Couples Issues, Mindfulness, Neuroscience, Trauma-Therapy - including Developmental- and Shock-Trauma, Family-, Generational- and Collective-Trauma, and clinical topics and individual themes in the spectrum from spirituality to science.
A dynamic, interactive experience in a group always has its own rich quality and you may also combine your deeper personal inquiry with a participation in a workshop. However, you may not have the time or a group does not seem to be the right setting for your topic or present life process. Therefore, we offer these intensive private consultations.
People from many parts of the world have chosen this format for more privacy, better time coordination or as a personal retreat. In general, people come to Personal Intensives / Retreats for 2 - 6 days. We will work twice a day for as long as it takes for your body-mind process to find insights, new perspectives, integration and healing with a chosen topic.
How do Individual or Couple Sessions look like?
Core Evolution is an integrative, experiential, body-oriented and mindfulness-centered approach and with our longstanding professional expertise we have the competence and freedom to not be fixed in a technique or in one approach.
We create the experiential setting in relation to what your needs are. You let us know, what you would like to explore, discover, find answers for your questions in life and what you would like to work with. We sit, talk, inquire. We take your path of life and all your life experiences -from joy to trauma - into account. We may also move, exercise, role play, constellate, look at dreams, invite you to express and voice feelings that may come up in all ranges from fear, anger to a deep sense of love - all this has room in the safe container and presence that we create in our work.
In a mindful experiential and explorative way we will invite you to expand physical, emotional or conceptual limitations to see greater perspectives in life and to honor your essential qualities, resulting in a natural unfolding, self-empowerment and embodied presence. The Practice in Being then solidifies the insights and supports you to bring these insights into your personal and professional life.
Before any Intensive we have an initial phone or Skype communication.
Siegmar or Cornelia Gerken can be booked throughout the year in Mendocino, California; at places around the world where we teach and worldwide as Phone or Skype sessions. Please look up our Calendar of Events or inquire.
Mendocino is an idyllic artist village on the Pacific Coast, 3 hours North of San Francisco. It is a treat to hike under the redwoods, rejuvenate with the pulsation of the ocean, roam the art galleries or nourish yourself in the award winning restaurants.
