Join Kate Holt, RN, ACCEP, CTP for an experiential webinar to learn about the spiritual foundations of Core Energetics.

Learn about the four stages of Core Energetics that set it apart from other somatic modalities and see what resonates for you.

Core Energetics offers unique tools to help re-contextualize experiences with new meaning in a deeply embodied way. It’s not just about catharsis or revisiting old wounds that keep one stuck in old narratives or negative patterns. It is about fully embodying what needs to be felt from past experiences and reclaiming disowned parts of yourself. It's about integrating new meaning into your bodymind and being delighted by the resulting outer manifestations. See handouts in the resource section below. 

Main Points of Presentation:

  • Overview of the Four Stages of Core Energetics
  • Demonstration of elements of the stages
  • Small breakout group work to support understanding.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain an introductory level understanding of the spiritual principles of Core Energetics
  • The four stages of the Core Energetics Evolutionary Process
  • Distinguish between catharsis and energetic release that is integrated, transformative, and evolutionary.
