March 24, Core Energetics Perth Core Energetics is a body-oriented psychotherapy that seeks to unify all aspects of our humanity, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. In Core Energetics, healthy functioning is characterized by balanced flow of energy through the body, emotions, mind, will and the spirit, the five fundamental levels of being.
This energy is similar to the chi of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Indian prana energy and Reichian orgone energy. When energy flows evenly and unobstructed, there is health and optimal functioning. When the energy is weak, or blocked, health is lacking. Such deficiencies can be seen in areas of the body where there is too much or too little energy.
Affecting not only the body, energy dysfunctions can also impact the psychological functioning, and result in the character structure types found in Reichian Characterology. The Core Energetics approach to personal growth is an eclectic blend of energy and consciousness theory which was developed by John Pierrakos M.
D who originally developed Reichian Theory. Core Energetics therapy focuses on working with energy blocks and deficiencies in the body via physical exercises and breathing techniques.
Combining bodywork, psychotherapy, and the spiritual component can activate a greater consciousness and assists clients in getting through the layers of energy to be able to reconnect with their core and innate capacity to love.
The main premise of Core Energetics theory is that core of the individual person, stripped of all its masks, pretensions and ego antics, is the inner essence and life energy of the person. In childhood, repeated patterns of feelings create specific patterns of muscular tension and weakness in the physical body which relate to trapped emotional memory.
These habitual patterns become largely unconscious as we adopt them and then use them later in life to meet our needs. This is our Life Force which seeks constantly to expand and grow. When in touch with this part of ourselves we feel compassion and love for our fellow creatures and ourselves.
When we are hurt, rejected, or violated we feel anger, hate and rage. This is the development of the Lower Self. The child learns quickly that this Lower Self reaction is unacceptable and must negate this part of himself, in order to survive and keep parental love. This energy becomes stagnant and produces the next layer of defence, which becomes the physical armouring. Core Energetics sees the shadow as a part of the core of life. The shadow contains primitive, undifferentiated life force, a power which is disowned and needs to be integrated into the personality.
For example, fear can unconsciously elicit held breath and raised shoulders. If this happens often enough a person develops permanent holding patterns and tension which are clearly evident in the body. It goes unconscious, leaving the individual cut off from his true essence and identifying himself with the Mask later in life. It is what we pretend to be so that our caretakers and later society will accept us, but it is not our authentic self.
The mask dampens the vibrancy and buoyancy of the life centre. Subscribe to our Newsletter Energetics Institute are the premier providers of Psychotherapy in Perth.

Pierrakos saw Core Energetics rooted in the rich legacies transmitted through the ages by philosophers, scientists, and physicians who taught about the existence of a creative essence within us. His mission was to promote a model of living as something much larger than an individual quest to differentiate and express oneself. He, like Teilhard de Chardin, believed in the sacredness of life and that there was an evolutionary plan in every living organism. He believed that the ego and body are one and that the act of surrendering to all of our feelings will ultimately lead us home, allowing the embodiment of spirit.
The Core is energy, love or soul. In order to come from our true CORE we must 1, find our false self and reveal the mask we hide behind. Feeling our feelings is the way we may transform them to love. Pierrakos researched the nature of energy and human energy fields that he incorporated with study of eastern traditions and a spiritual discipline called The Pathwork when he created Core Energetics. The Institute for Core Energetics was founded by Pierrakos in [originally called the Institute for the New Age] and incorportated in Core Energetics Theory Edit Core Energetics is based on the belief that the individual has the innate capacity for love and healing.
