The Transpersonal has been defined as "experiences in which the sense of identity or self extends beyond the individual or personal to encompass wider aspects of humankind, life, psyche or cosmos." Transpersonal Counseling, or "Spiritual Psychology," derives from a school of psychology that integrates the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience within the framework of modern psychology. What to Expect Issues considered in transpersonal counseling, a specific form of talk therapy, include spiritual self-development, self beyond the ego, peak experiences, mystical experiences, systemic trance, spiritual crises, spiritual evolution, religious conversion, altered states of consciousness, spiritual practices, and other sublime and/or unusually expanded experiences of living.

    Developed by John Pierrakos, MD., Core Energetics is a marriage of Body Psychotherapy and Spiritual Development. The work brings consciousness to how we block our energy and recreate defense patterns adapted in childhood that keep us limited and disempowered. The core process helps us see how our world view is to a large extent a function of many of these blocked energy patterns, and so we keep recreating similar situations and relational dynamics that leave us frustrated. Awareness is not enough, we also need to mobilize our physical energy (life-force) differently in order to make lasting changes in both our inner world and our outer experience of life. Work with the body is critical in changing our experience of embodiment, because our defenses, belief systems, coping mechanisms, and typical emotional responses are not just psychological, they are also somatic and powerfully anchored in the physical body.

    Targeted body techniques open consciousness to suppressed feelings and engage the energy system in ways that allow us to go beyond our “comfort” zone. The Core work taps into blocked sources of energy that can then be integrated and grounded. This creates an expanded sense of who we are to more fully embrace our life, open unknown inner resources, express our creativity, embrace our sexuality, and deepen our connection with others.

    Over the last years, the newest research emerging from the field of neurobiology has clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of body-centered modalities such as Core Energetics in working with individuals with anxiety, depression, personality issues, sexual dysfunction etc. The Core process however, goes far beyond symptom improvement as it works at the very deepest levels of being to transform the fixed patterns of behavior that have been structured in our character.

    Core Energetics is life-changing work which opens us to the fullness of our life-force, opens our heart, grounds us in the strength and integrity of who we really are, and supports us in bringing forth our unique gifts as we engage more responsibly with the world around us.
