The 4-Year Practitioner Program is a comprehensive training experience leading to certification as a Core Energetics Practitioner.
Highly experiential, this program is designed for students to develop in three distinct yet overlapping areas of competence.
The curriculum provides the main theoretical & philosophical constructs that underly, support and define the Core Energetics evolutionary model.
Personal and Spiritual Development
The program provides a model for personal evolution, energetic integration and spiritual growth and develops the capacity for presence, open-hearted living and deeper engagement with all of life.
Applied Methodology / Practical Application of Core Energetics
The program provides the training needed for graduates to responsibly practice Core Energetics and be able to engage clients at every level of being (body, emotions, mind, will and spirit) to support both healing and the clearing of obstacles that hold humans back from bringing forth their inherent gifts.
The first two years are pre-clinical years. Students develop a foundational understanding of the four-stage Core Energetics methodology as insight into human energy dynamics deepens. At the same time students actively engage in a conscious and embodied process of personal growth through self awareness and interactive participation in process group and in various exercises and experiences with the class and the community. Students in both programs participate in these two pre-clinical years together.
Students gain an embodied understanding of the nuances of energy and consciousness as the building blocks of human experience. The character defense structures are explored, in all their physical, psychological and energetic manifestations, as keys to understanding human behavior patterns and as the source of most life issues—as well as an entrance into the individual’s unique gifts. Various layers of the personality: the mask, lower self and higher self are studied. Students gain fluency in identifying which layer they or others are acting from, while simultaneously understanding the impact this has on authentic presence and full engagement with life.
The third and fourth years of the training emphasize the development of clinical skills in the student-practitioner. Themes that support clinical proficiency, such as; assessment, transference, countertransference, resistance, trauma work, working with groups, as well as many others, are explored. Students practice working with the body to release energy blocks, support flow and facilitate integration of newfound awareness. Personal growth is ongoing in classes, community events and process groups as students deepen self-knowledge, as well as integrate and embody the work. It is during this stage in the training that student-practitioners initiate work with clients under the guidance of a supervisor to gain competence in applying the methods in the practice of Core Energetics.
