What is Bioenergetics and Core Energetics ?

The Bioenergetics approach to personal growth was developed by Alexander Lowen M.D. and John Pierrakos. Lowen and Pierrakos, both psychoanalysts, were clients and then students of Wilhelm Reich M.D.  After studying with Reich, they added their own refinements to Reich's discoveries and principles to produce the systematic therapy that became known as Bioenergetics and was then further developed into Core Energetics.

The Core Energetics approach to personal growth was developed by John Pierrakos M.D. in 1971 and is a further refinement of Bioenergetics, which was developed by Alexander Lowen M.D. and John Pierrakos. Lowen and Pierrakos, both psychoanalysts, were clients and then students of Wilhelm Reich M.D.  After studying with Reich, they added their own refinements to Reich's discoveries and principles to produce the systematic therapy that became known as Bioenergetics and was then further developed into Core Energetics.

We have as a goal the intention to further evolve this body of knowledge and to explain it in ways to the public that assist in a wider understanding eventuating out of this important body of work.
