    In this workshop, we will explore how to utilize somatic techniques to connect more quickly with the client and forge a strong therapeutic alliance. 


    We will:

    • Focus on using breathing and grounding to resource the client, becoming more aware of our own breathing and expanding it in the process.
    • Learn ways to help clients repair the disconnect between self and others—and between parts of the self—that have been created by shaming, inappropriate behavior or abuse.
    • Explore how to keep our clients more present in the room with us and counter over- verbalization, dissociation and freezing.
    • Learn techniques and theory from Wilhelm Reich (the father of somatics), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing), Ron Kurtz (Hakomi) and Eugene Gendlin (Focusing).

    TO REGISTER, please visit the Schedule page at www.CenterforHealingShame.com.

    CoreSoma® For Women

    March 9 + 10, 2019 • Mendocino, California
    with Cornelia Gerken, CMP, ECP, HP


    Explore Below the Thinking Mind
    The Living Matrix of our Conscious Body-Mind Field

    The CoreSoma program is for every woman who would like to deepen her personal life process. It also addresses body-oriented practitioners, since it connects the emotional-cognitive level with the somatic level and opens the experience of the Unity of Being. The direct nourishing and healing touch is an essential tool in this process. 

    It is my intention to lead you into direct and conscious contact with the somatic feeling and intelligence of our body-mind field. The roots of our psyche and much of what we attribute to our thinking and understanding are deeply embedded in this somatic realm. 

    CoreSoma opens the door to expand our self-awareness beyond identification with our thinking and to sense our somatic matrix. This perception connects us with what is alive in us and gives us the chance to rediscover ourselves.

    Current research highlights the importance of our early and ongoing non-verbal but embodied experiences. At the beginning of our lives and in the early stages of development, touch is existentially necessary for healthy development, a maturing nervous system, the feeling of "I am" or "I exist", and the emotional experiences of trust and attachment. The experience of being loved and loving is primarily conveyed through touch in the first months and years, forming an implicit sense of ourselves and relating us to the world.

    Thus the direct work with the body-mind field through touch is enormously rich to balance neuro-physio-emotional deficits and to heal and deepen with experiences of trust, bonding and love. 

    There are parts of us that do not speak the language of mind and will. To be heard, these parts depend on a different kind of contact, communication and presence. When these needs are recognized, the body often only needs mindfulness and awareness to integrate fixations created in the past (unfulfilled moments in our early development or traumatic conditions) and to find answers and new forms of being and acting in the present. 

    Through our perception of the body-mind field we can open these fixations and restructure and rewire ourselves, be it in the muscular and structural embodiment, the emotional regulation or our plasmatic qualities of the subtle fields. Here we enter the endless cycle of absorbing information, whether external or internal, listening to our organismic response and shaping our reactions with intention and presence. In principle, we promote the flow and exchange between the impulses rising from our inner being, our thinking, our intention and will, creating a field of coherence.

    In this flow we often experience contentment and joy, rest and accept what we perceive as streams of love that connect us to our essence and spiritual self.

    With many years of teaching and practice, Cornelia's work offers a level of mastery in this field.

    Introduction to NARM Online Webinar: Working with Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

    Online Webinar

    The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM™) is a powerful theoretical and clinical model for addressing complex trauma.  

    There are currently very few therapeutic approaches designed specifically to address developmental trauma.  With the ACEs Study, the Trauma-Informed Care movement, and the need for addressing complex trauma - including cultural and transgenerational trauma - as helping professionals we need to stay in front of this rapidly evolving field.  

    NARM is a perfect training for staying current and deepening your trauma-informed skills.  This cutting-edge model targets attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties. These early, unconscious patterns of disconnection deeply affect our identity, emotions, physiology, behavior and relationships. Learning how to work simultaneously with these diverse elements is a radical shift that has profound clinical implications for healing complex trauma.  Based on the book by NARM Foudner Dr. Laurence Heller, Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship, NARM is geared toward supporting adults and couples in building greater capacity for self-regulation and interpersonal connection.

    This 2-hr online webinar will offer an overview of complex trauma from a NARM perspective.  While it is geared toward helping professionals working with complex trauma, anyone is welcome and can benefit from the information presented in the webinar.  Understanding and being able to work with developmental dynamics is critical for helping our clients, and ourselves, in the healing process.  We will look at how one’s life experience presents itself in the context of a complex, psychobiologically-driven relational framework that is often largely unconscious.  This framework, laid down by our early attachment experiences, shapes our development, who we are in the world (our Self), and how we relate to others.   When one is having difficulty shifting out of old patterns, these implicit dynamics are at play and must be addressed.  The NARM approach presents a dynamic model that has profound clinical implications for healing complex trauma.

    Webinar Format:

    • Overview of NARM’s theoretical and clinical approach to attachment, relational and developmental trauma
    • Complex Trauma: Differentiating between Shock and Developmental Trauma
    • Lecture and experiential exercises on each of the five adaptive survival styles

    2-Day Post-Congress Workshop 

    Monday, April 15; 9 am - 9:30 pm   -  Tuesday, April 16; 9 am to 4 pm

    The Power of Life and the Will of Your Heart

    A Core Evolution Intensive
    Integrative, Body-Oriented and Mindfulness-Centered

    Core Evolution moves beyond the common goals of therapy. It establishes a unified and holistic process that connects the body, emotions, cognitive capacity, mind, will and the spiritual self into a unity, which expresses the total reality of the person.

    As a spiritual and body-oriented psychology we reach all levels of existence by first working with the physical body through movement, touch and breathing, to reach and begin to transform patterns of protection that were established in our earlier developmental years and to open fixed belief systems. This cre
    ates space for your original path to unfold.

    Activating and allowing the flow of life provides the safety to expand your experiences, to reach out, share, express and embrace life in its fullest. It is only through experience, that we really come to know ourselves.

    A new found freedom of choice leads to an awareness that you are the co-creator of your life. When your mind, body and heart communicate in harmony, then you allow the natural flow of Being. This is where transformation begins and from where you will live with passion and compassion for your own life, the life of others and the world.

    Besides empathic listening, heartfelt sharing, individual and group processing, movement, dance and expression, dreamwork, meditation and practicing the principles of Mindfulness the work will also include:

    • The Intention Quest ™- which brings you in contact with your original pulsation in life. Being carried by the heartbeat gives you the support and strength to connect again with your inner force that allows you to re-direct the intention for your life’s journey.

    • The Wild Heart Meditation - the Dance of Energy and Consciousness™ - a joy-filled, transformative process and inner and outer movement, including dance, authentic movement, creative expression, communication, centering and more - in the spectrum from free-flow, active dance to subtle stillness.

    • The Earth Run, (Monday evening, depending on the weather) we will close the day with the Earth Run, a celebration of power and gratitude, strengthening of our spirits and the healing of our planet.

    Siegmar’s workshops are known for their aliveness and subtlety, and for the freedom and opportunity to experience, explore and integrate the body, feelings, thinking, mind, will and spirituality. His integrative style meets the beginner on the conscious path as well as the professional therapist. 

    Embrace the Unity of Life
    Honor Your Essential Qualities
    Harmonize Your Body, Feelings and Mind
    Live with Self-Empowerment and Mindful Presence to 

    Integrate Your Past, Be in the Present and Shape Your Future!

    THE 25th IIBA International Conference

    The title of the Conference "A bioenergetic view of love, healing, connection and authenticity" highlights very relevant themes in a world which is changing too fast. People's lives are undergoing profound changes they may not understand. In many countries there are precarious economic and social conditions and the expectations for the younger generations are uncertain. People's inner landscapes have also changed, even more precocious forms of narcissism are present and pervasive, and traumatic attachments destroy the possibility of secure connections.

    All this invites us to reflect, to update our therapeutic practice in continuity with our theoretical model. Bioenergetic Analysis has much to say and to offer both from a therapeutic and from a sociological perspective.


    When: May 22 - 26, 2019
    Where: Torres Vedras (Portugal)

    NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model - as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship - emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness-based approaches.  NARM bridges traditional psychotherapy (“top-down”) with somatic approaches (“bottom-up”) within a context of relational practice.  

    NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs).

    • How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.

    NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model - as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship - emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness-based approaches.  NARM bridges traditional psychotherapy (“top-down”) with somatic approaches (“bottom-up”) within a context of relational practice.  

    NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs).

    Course Objectives:

    • A comprehensive theory and skills for addressing the long-term effects of unresolved childhood trauma (ACEs).
    • How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions.
    • The clinical skills needed to work with attachment, relational and developmental trauma.
    • Differentiating the skills necessary for addressing shock trauma versus complex trauma.
    • Working with shame, guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, self-hatred, and other psychobiological symptoms.
    • How to work moment-by-moment with early adaptive survival styles that, while once life-saving, distort clients’ current life experience.
    • When to work ‘bottom-up’, when to work ‘top-down’, and how to work with both simultaneously to meet the special challenges of complex trauma.
    • How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.
    • A new, coherent theory for working with affect and emotions, which aims to support their psychobiological completion.
    • A powerful relational model that strengthens clinical effectiveness by highlighting the interpersonal nature of the therapeutic process.

    With over 40 years of teaching experience, we are pioneers in the field of Body-Oriented Mindfulness-Centered Therapy, Somatic, Humanistic and Transpersonal Psychology, with expanded studies in psychodynamics and behavioral approaches. Teaching at the cutting edge of research and the application in our field, we search to touch the essence of a person with competence, love and joy, supporting the full potential to be realized.

He is 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 Psychology, Spirituality and Science.
