Be­gin­ning On­line May 1 + 2,  June 5 + 6, July 17 + 18, Septem­ber 18, 2021

Continu­ing with al­tern­at­ing meet­ings In-Per­son, Octo­ber 2 - 8, 2021 in Tuscany, Italy and On­line.

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.

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;

  • 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 the­ory and prac­tice:

Developed out of our ex­per­i­ence and in­sights as well as from the fol­low­ing ap­proaches:
• Depth-psy­cho­logy and body-ori­ented ther­apy

• Gestalt, So­mat­ic, Hu­man­ist­ic,Transper­son­al, Ex­ist­en­tial and In­teg­ral and Pos­it­ive Psy­cho­logy

• At­tach­ment and Bond­ing The­or­ies • Fam­ily sys­tems and work with con­stel­la­tions

• Af­fect­ive, cog­nit­ive and so­cial neur­os­cience

• Eastern and Western Teach­ings and Sham­an­ic Ap­proaches

• Psycho­so­mat­ics, Subtle En­er­gies and Dreams

• Our own ori­gin­al re­search on the en­er­get­ic dy­nam­ics of emo­tion­al and so­mat­ic pro­cesses.

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;

• 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 and pres­ence. 

• Prac­ti­tion­ers from many dif­fer­ent schools and back­grounds come to this work be­cause of the uni­fy­ing as­pects of Core Evolu­tion.

Our the­ory is at the cut­ting edge of sci­ence. Our teach­ing and prac­tice is based on over 40 years of ex­per­i­ence. We ex­plore the in­ter­con­nec­ted­ness of life pro­cesses as they mani­fest in the unity of body, emo­tions, mind, will, and con­scious­ness.

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

What is the be­ne­fit this pro­gram can give you?  

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.  

In our path of life we are chal­lenged by many situ­ations - from Devel­op­ment­al to Col­lect­ive Trauma and other situ­ations - that make it dif­fi­cult to stay in the aware­ness of our es­sence and in­ten­tion as a re­source to meet our in­di­vidu­al as well as glob­al ques­tions.  

Core Evolu­tion teaches the art of em­power­ing a per­son to ac­cess and de­vel­op their own re­sources. This pro­gram provides the un­der­stand­ing for these pro­cesses and of­fers clear psy­cho­lo­gic­al, emo­tion­al and so­mat­ic in­ter­ven­tions to en­able the Body-MInd Sys­tem full phys­ic­al, emo­tion­al and con­scious in­teg­ra­tion, to ini­ti­ate per­son­al and ul­ti­mately glob­al change.  

The Glob­al Core Evolu­tion Train­ing™ is for par­ti­cipants who want to de­vel­op and apply these skills in the per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al life - to learn, to ob­serve, to listen and to fa­cil­it­ate trans­form­a­tion­al pro­cesses.  

• Gain a com­pre­hens­ive un­der­stand­ing of the Mat­rix of Life  

• Learn ef­fect­ive tools to apply an In­teg­rat­ive, Rela­tion­al, Ex­per­i­en­tial, Psy­cho­dy­nam­ic, Body-Ori­en­ted and Mind­ful­ness-Centered ap­proach  

• Bal­ance the­ory, ex­per­i­ence and prac­tice.  

We are one of the lead­ing In­sti­tutes in this field, of­fer­ing a very de­tailed teach­ing of early de­vel­op­ment­al phases and the res­ult­ing 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 res­ult­ing be­ha­vi­or and at­tach­ments. These at­tach­ments and bond­ing pat­terns are often un­con­scious and can be po­ten­tially lim­it­ing the free flow in life. By mak­ing them con­scious, be­ha­vi­or­al at­ti­tudes be­come choices.  

Con­tem­por­ary re­search about the in­ter­ac­tion of body and mind in­devel­op­ment­al neur­os­cience, pre- and peri­nat­al psy­cho­logy, at­tach­ment the­or­ies, af­fect reg­u­la­tion and the ex­pan­ded ob­ser­va­tion in early child­hood de­vel­op­ment and other find­ings, con­firm dec­ades of ex­per­i­ences in Core Evolu­tion.  

In this Train­ing we ex­plore:

• How you struc­ture and or­gan­ize your Body-Mind Sys­tem;

• With Mind­ful­ness and So­mat­ic Aware­ness you sense and track en­ergy pat­terns;

• You learn to re­cog­nize the dif­fer­ence between trig­gers and au­then­t­ic emo­tion­al ex­pres­sions;

• The prac­tice of mul­tiple levels of aware­ness to be in con­tact with your­self and an­oth­er;

• Through skill­ful body-mind in­ter­ac­tions and rais­ing in­di­vidu­al and group con­scious­ness we cre­ate a co­her­ence, in which new, cre­at­ive solu­tions for chal­lenges in our lives can emerge.

Core Evolu­tion relates to Quantum Phys­ics and did its own re­search in In­frared Ana­lys­is and Bio-Photon meas­ure­ment to doc­u­ment bio-psy­cho-emo­tion­al states in the Body-Mind Field of a per­son, which opened new ho­ri­zons to sci­ent­ists and prac­ti­tion­ers.  

The In­ter­na­tion­al In­sti­tute for Core Evolu­tion & CoreSoma is an ac­cred­ited In­sti­tute by the EABP and EAP  

Core Evolu­tion is re­cog­nized as a sci­entif­ic mod­al­ity by the European As­so­ci­ation for Body-Psy­cho­ther­apy (EABP) and by the European As­so­ci­ation of Psy­cho­ther­apy (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).  


Cel­eb­rat­ing Unity and Diversity in the Under­stand­ing of One­ness.  

In CORE EVOLUTION we honor the es­sence of a per­son as an in­her­ent qual­ity, which in the pro­cess of life ideally finds its un­fold­ing and real­iz­a­tion. There­fore, Core Evolu­tion at­tends to a per­son’s pro­cess with pro­fes­sion­al know­ledge, care, re­search, com­pet­ence, in­tu­ition, em­pathy, mind­ful­ness and pres­ence to re­gain joy and nour­ish the love for life.

After the first on­line meet­ing, we con­tin­ue In-Per­son, on Octo­ber 2 - 8, 2021 in Cap­al­bio, South­ern Tuscany, Italy.  

Why Tuscany? - We found a great re­sort for the best price; only one hour North of Rome. This gives ac­cess to many budget flights, ac­cess­ible by train dir­ectly from the air­port with free pick up at the train sta­tion in Cap­al­bio or or­gan­ized pickup dir­ectly at the air­port in Rome - no rent­al car needed dur­ing the stay! Plen­ti­ful amen­it­ies at the re­sort with a great, fully-equipped con­fer­ence room, an Olympic size pool, ten­nis court, de­li­cious food, spa­cious cab­ins and a free 5-minute shuttle to the best small beaches in Tuscany or rent a bi­cycle to get around, etc.. - the be­gin­ning of Octo­ber is a great time to beat the tour­ist sea­son while still en­joy­ing mild and warm weath­er as well as tak­ing ad­vant­age of bet­ter prices for over­all travel. It is a great place to com­bine a pro­fes­sion­al in­tens­ive train­ing with per­son­al re­ju­ven­a­tion – and as men­tioned for a an af­ford­able price, that al­lows people to come from all over the world to par­ti­cip­ate.
