Core Strokes™ is a way of entering heart-first into the visceral world of feeling. By becoming conscious of our character defense patterns and dissolving our body armor, we naturally and spontaneously embrace life in the way suited to us. Core Strokes™ combines theoretical and practical aspects of on the one hand Core Energetics® (developed by John C. Pierrakos, MD) and on the other hand Postural Integration® (developed by Jack W. Painter, PhD). Core Strokes™ – Postural Integration® sessions specifically help a person to dissolve segmental and “muscular and myofascial armoring”, which is a part of our emotional defense system.

Core Strokes Workshop


Core Strokes ™-Postural Integration® supports a growth process of the whole person, based also and importantly on his posture. Your posture tells a lot about who you are. By deeply liberating the myofascial tensions in your body in combination with simultaneous work with the breath, movement, energy and consciousness all within the interpersonal relationship, the different body areas can be made aware and re-set individually and in relation to each other. You can experience in this workshop the many ways in which you prevent yourself from being well aligned, well oriented and intentioned, clear, loving, fully living, and joyful or optimistic. Moving and unblocking the stuck energy and direct the associated emotions you come increasingly in your positive lifestream. You will find out how your body and your feelings are important guides for desired change and purpose in your life.
