Book Description
This book is a classic text on Core Energetics, a body/mind/spirit therapeutic process developed by John C. Pierrakos MD. It stems from the work of Wilhelm Reich and Bioenergetics, but with a deepening spiritual component. The focus of the book is to open the "Core" to a new awareness of how body, emotions, mind, will and spirit form a unit.

A scholarly text, the author explains in full psychological detail his theory and therapy. The result is a masterpiece of body/mind holistic thinking.


AHP Perspective (Association of Humanistic Psychology)
This is a definitive book on somatic therapy.... Pierrakos worked for twenty years on energy mobilization to release the body of chronic muscular tensions, drawing on the Reichian and Bioenergetic systems....this book adds a spiritual dimension to the work.

Pierrakos emphasizes that the ultimate goal of Core Energetics is learning how to activate the human core, the spirit or higher self of each human being... Energetically, movements from the core make contact and unify us with the outside world. Our deepest connection with the universe derives from the core. Our intuitive self and somatic genius reside within the core. Pierrakos calls it the "sun of life".... Core Energetic work is unique among the somatic therapies...the author's passion as a healer and teacher, his compassion for the suffering person, his enormous capacity to give; these are evident in reading his book. He truly is a spokesperson for the human core.

Barbara Brennan, author of Hands of Light
Core Energetics unifies all human aspects of physical, emotional, rational and spiritual into a powerful system to understand ourselves
