Living the Pulsation of Life

Integrate Your Past • Be in the Present • Shape Your Future

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


We are liv­ing in un­­­pre­ced­en­ted times. While the whole world tries to stop the ef­­fect of COVID-19 on our lives, we all con­­trib­ute by caring for ourselves and oth­­ers, to stay healthy and re­si­li­ent. Since health and well-being is also the guid­ing prin­­ciple of our work, we only be­­gin­ our new in-per­son Train­ings from Febru­ary 2021 on. Until then we con­­­duct in­­di­vidu­al and group work on­line.

We all have be­­come used to the term so­­cial dis­­tan­­cing - but it is more meant as phys­ic­al dis­­tan­­cing. Let us stay con­­nec­ted with our hearts and minds, as we nav­ig­ate this di­f­fi­­cult phase in our his­t­ory. 

This is the time, where we must prac­­tice what we teach - re­si­li­ence, em­pathy, com­­pas­­sion and the wis­­dom of the Body-Mind.

In Core Evolu­­tion we offer down to earth tools:   

• to stay in con­­tact with one­­self and the love for life;  

• to reg­u­late our body- and nervous sys­tem;  

• to reach a place of co­her­­ence;  

• to act from a sense of em­bod­i­­ment and pres­ence and inner lead­er­­­ship.  

In Core Evolu­­tion this takes place on the phys­ic­al, emo­­tion­al, cog­n­it­ive and spir­itu­al / con­­s­cious­­ness level and ul­ti­mately leads to the heal­ing of In­di­vidu­al, Fam­ily, Gen­er­­a­­tion­al and Col­lect­ive Trauma                                   

In­teg­rate Your Past • Be in the Present • Shape Your Fu­ture™ 

Never in his­t­ory have we been con­­s­ciously and tech­n­ic­ally so con­­nec­ted on this globe as now. This is where the present chal­lenge can also be­­come a great op­­por­­tun­­ity for trans­­form­a­­tion in which every­body can par­ti­­cip­ate, in­­di­vidu­ally and col­lect­ively. It takes re­search, ex­per­i­ence and prac­tice, to raise the aware­ness of how we hold pat­terns of our per­son­al his­tory and the col­lect­ive con­scious­ness in our Body-Mind Field - that means, that this in­form­a­tion or trau­mas are often not in­teg­rated into the har­mo­ni­ous flow of life.

This pro­cess of re­cog­ni­tion and in­teg­ra­tion is com­plex. This is where the in­­teg­rat­ive, body-ori­ented and mind­­ful­­ness-centered ap­­proach of Core Evolu­­tion has been of­fer­­ing sup­­port now for over 40 years.

With com­mon ef­forts, we will also over­come this crisis. However, it is good to stay vi­­gil­ant and aware of how you can sup­­port the pro­­cess of stay­ing healthy and sup­port the health of oth­ers. At the same time, it is also im­­port­ant to stay mind­­ful with your Body-Mind Pro­­cess, to keep an en­­ergy dy­­nam­ic alive, stay in open and caring com­mu­n­ic­a­­tion, cen­ter/med­it­ate, so that you can con­­trib­ute with your en­­ergy, know­ledge and love - to keep the vis­ion for the fur­th­er un­­­fold­ing of a cre­at­ive and ful­­filling life.

Who we are

Who we are

We un­der­stand our com­mit­ment and work of over forty years in CORE EVOLUTION®
as a con­tri­bu­tion to an emo­tion­ally in­teg­rated, peace­ful so­ci­ety.

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.

Due to the present ex­ten­ded pan­dem­ic situ­ation, all new in-per­son Core Evolu­tion Train­ings and Cor­ne­lia's CoreSoma Pro­grams have been moved to 2021.

• Esto­nia    Febru­ary 26 - 28, 2021 - Tallinn, Esto­nia

• Ger­many March 5 - 7, 2021, near Frank­furt, Ger­many

• USA          April 30 - May 2, 2021 - Cali­for­nia

• For all other In­ter­na­tion­al in­terest, we are fo­cus­ing in 2021 on the unique op­por­tun­ity of the GLOBAL Core Evolu­tion Train­ing be­gin­ning May 22 - 28, 2021 in a fant­ast­ic, re­ju­ven­at­ing place in Europe. 

• CoreSoma in-per­son pro­grams with Cor­ne­lia will re­sume Spring 2021.
