Personalized Intensives or Retreats in Core Evolution

Individual Intensives with Siegmar or Cornelia Gerken
can be booked throughout the year in Mendocino, California.

Personalized Couple Intensives with Cornelia and Siegmar
can be booked for February, March, June and July 2017.

We also offer individual work in our private practice in San Rafael, Marin County, as well as worldwide Skype sessions.

A dynamic, interactive experience in a group always has its own rich quality and you may also combine your deeper inquiry with the participation in a workshop. However, you may not have the time or a group does not seem to be the right setting for your topic or present process. Therefore, we offer these extended private consultations.

People from many parts of the world have chosen this format for more privacy, better time coordination or as a personal retreat. In general, people come to Personal Intensives/Retreats for 2 - 6 days. We will work with you twice a day for as long as it takes for your body-mind process to find insights, new perspectives integration and healing with a chosen topic.

Mendocino is an idyllic artist village on the Pacific Coast, 3 hours North of San Francisco. It is a treat to hike under the redwoods, rejuvenate with the pulsation of the ocean, roam the art galleries or nourish yourself in the award winning restaurants.

Please contact us to schedule an intensive or set up a session: Info@CoreEvolution.com
