Evolving Together

The Institute of Core Energetics is committed to being a force for the healing of humanity, transforming negativity and fear into love. We value and work diligently to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community, where all people feel seen, welcomed, and integral to the wellbeing of the whole. We recognize and acknowledge that to continue Evolving Together, we must take steps to transform our systems, policies, and practices to ensure equitable opportunities and an inclusive culture for our faculty, students, and all Friends of the Institute. We are committed to ongoing engagement in activities that expand the competency and capacity of the Institute’s leadership, faculty, student body, and the broader Core Community, to confront and condemn racism, attacks on religious groups, hatred, bigotry, discrimination, violence and oppression of all marginalized groups. We are committed to affirming the full humanity of all.

If you are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and need support you can now reach out to one of our volunteer Core Energetics Practitioners to schedule an hour long session, free of charge.

Discover Core Energetics

Developed by John Pierrakos, MD., Core Energetics is a synthesis of body-oriented psychotherapy and spiritual development. It brings consciousness to how we block our life energy by perpetuating defensive patterns adapted in childhood which keep us limited and disempowered. Core Energetics helps us understand how our life and worldview is to a large extent a function of these blocked energy patterns. These patterns keep us recreating similar life situations and relational dynamics, leaving us trapped and frustrated. Core Energetics helps identify and dissolve these blocks, allowing us to experience more freedom and aliveness.
