About us

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.

In our work with in­di­vidu­als, couples and groups, pro­fes­sion­al train­ings, or­gan­iz­a­tion­al con­sult­ing, con­flict res­ol­u­tion and per­son­al heal­ing, we fa­cil­it­ate a deep­er un­der­stand­ing of our present day life is­sues to raise the con­scious­ness and qual­ity of life.

We search to touch the es­sence of a per­son with com­pet­ence, love and joy, sup­port­ing the full po­ten­tial to be real­ized.

With over 40 years of teach­ing ex­per­i­ence, we are pi­on­eers in the field of In­teg­rat­ive Body-Ori­en­ted and Mind­ful­ness-Centered Ther­apy, So­mat­ic, Hu­man­ist­ic and Transper­son­al Psy­cho­logy, with ex­pan­ded stud­ies in psy­cho­dy­nam­ics and be­ha­vi­or­al ap­proaches. Our teach­ing is at the cut­ting edge of con­scious­ness re­search in the spec­trum of sci­ence and spir­itu­al­ity and the ap­plic­a­tion in life and work.

Siegmar Gerken, PHD, ECP, HP (Psy­cho­ther­apy) stud­ied psy­cho­logy, edu­ca­tion and an­thro­po­logy. He taught on the fac­ulty of the JFK University So­mat­ic Psy­cho­logy De­part­ment, the Esalen In­sti­tute, and the Be­ha­vi­or­al Ther­apy Train­ing In­sti­tute in Ham­burg. He teaches at uni­ver­sit­ies and and private in­sti­tutes world­wide, on the in­ter­con­nec­ted­ness of psycho­so­mat­ic pro­cesses as they mani­fest on the levels of body, emo­tions, mind, will and con­scious­ness. His re­search in en­ergy field doc­u­ment­a­tion with Prof. F. Popp on psy­cho-emo­tion­al states opened new ho­ri­zons to sci­ent­ists and prac­ti­tion­ers. He is co-founder of the Scientif­ic Com­mit­tee of the EABP. Dr. Gerken is a lec­turer, ther­ap­ist, train­er and su­per­visor.
He also leads the spe­cial­ized Core Evolu­tion Trauma Train­ings; Man­age­ment Teach­ing in Author­ity and Lead­er­ship and the En­ergy & Con­scious­ness Pro­gram­s™ for Ap­plied Mind­ful­ness in Psy­cho­logy, Spir­itu­al­ity and Science.

Siegmar: I work to real­ize my lifelong vis­ion of bring­ing light into this world, es­pe­cially into human bod­ies, which I per­ceive as di­vine ves­sels for the high­er in­ten­tion of real­iz­ing ourselves in this life time.

Cor­ne­lia Gerken, CMP, ECP, HP (Psy­cho­ther­apy) com­pleted her uni­ver­sity stud­ies in Göt­tin­gen, Ger­many with a de­gree in edu­ca­tion and fur­ther stud­ies in psy­cho­logy. Cor­ne­lia in­teg­rates dif­fer­ent psycho­so­mat­ic and psy­cho-spir­itu­al ap­proaches. She de­veloped her own syn­thes­is, CoreSoma, which looks at so­mat­ic real­ity as the found­a­tion of our lives. In her work she shares her com­pas­sion and joy for life, bring­ing a deep pres­ence of the fem­in­ine. Cor­ne­lia is also a dan­cer and artist. With her hus­band she is the Co-Founder and Co-Dir­ect­or of the In­ter­na­tion­al In­sti­tute of CoreE­volu­tion and CoreSoma and the In­ter­na­tion­al In­sti­tute for En­ergy & Con­scious­ness. Cor­ne­lia & Siegmar have been mar­ried for over 40 years and have three adult chil­dren.
Cor­ne­lia is es­pe­cially known for her wo­men’s work­shops: Em­power­ment • Free­dom • Ma­tur­ity, her Awaken Your Body-Dream-Pro­cess™ and her teach­ing series in the spe­cial­ized pro­gram of CoreSoma®.

Cor­ne­lia: Love is the only ther­apy, the only truth. Love is what we are.

If you want to deep­en your search or dis­cov­ery in life or want to find more cre­at­ive an­swers and dy­nam­ic in­teg­ra­tion for ques­tions or de­cision mak­ing pro­cesses con­cern­ing your qual­ity of life, we offer our guid­ance, care, com­pet­ence and love for life in our work­shops and train­ings and in Per­son­al In­tens­ives in our prac­tice, places where we teach in­ter­na­tion­ally or on­line and by phone.

Glob­al peace and in­di­vidu­al joy
Cor­ne­lia & Siegmar Gerken
