Core Energetics is a marriage of body psychotherapy and spiritual development. The work brings consciousness to how we block our energy. The process employs breathing techniques, physical movement and inter-personal relationship to create self-awareness, heal old wounds and radically increase your potential to enjoy life. It is dynamic, playful, creative, confronting and supports you in becoming fully and intensely who you truly are.

NICE offers Core Energetic workshops, a personal transformation program (in Dutch), a 4-year international professional training and a post graduate training.

Training modules postponed due to Corona measures

In those challenging times we feel our responsibility to provide clarity about continuation of the training program. We decided to postpone the training modules that were planned for this spring and summer to October - December. Accordingly the next schoolyear will start in February 2021.

Of course, we need to work from the present information, not knowing how the situation will evolve, like free travel of persons through Europe and from the USA and restrictions like keeping distance from 1.5 meter. We are sure we all are able to find our solutions and explore our creativity.

In the meantime, our main goal is to stay connected as a community and to reach out to people that need support.

Stay safe and healthy. Feel welcome and don’t hesitate to contact us and bring your ideas/suggestions.
