Year I. Energy and Consciousness

The theme for the first year is to understand Consciousness /Energy as the foundation of all that exists, including Human life and experience in the body. The mind, spirit, energy, emotions, personality and defenses are studied as reflections of the souls’ journey throughout one’s life. The curriculum covers grounding, breathing and sensing, as well as the foundational understanding of energy charge and discharge.  The year is the foundation upon which the knowledge of Core Energetics is built. In addition, trainees will learn about themselves, how they block their own creativity, movement, and life force.

Requirements during academic year:

  • In-person attendance to class sessions during each module.

  • Completion of homework in between each module.

  • 24 Process work sessions with a Core Energetics therapist or with a Body Psychotherapist.

Year II. Techniques

The second year of training focuses on the understanding of the various defensive structures as well as the mastery of techniques and methods which release the blocks in the body created by these defenses. Trainees learn theories of energy and apply them to specific techniques for energetic work. The curriculum covers an understanding of basic anatomy as well as the defensiveness as an expression of spiritual “struggle”.

In addition, neuroscience, countertransference and transference, diagnosis, treatment planning and assessment are emphasized. Trainees integrate and put into practice what they have learned in prior years.
