Podcast: Why I Listen

Zelino Modesto, student from NICE, Dutch school for Core Energetic Therapists, made interesting podcasts. In Why I listen, he interviews different guests about the concept and qualities of listening. What happens in us when we truly listen and what makes us feel listened to. What is good listening? With the help of various guests connected to therapy, arts, teaching, communication, etc. he explores different perspectives and levels of listening. How do we listen deeply? How do we listen to ourselves and oters? Which part of us is listening in a given circumstance? With his guests he dives into the secrets of communication and relationship and gain more insight on this beautiful quality.

three podcasts are of most interest for us:

S1 E1 – Extraordinary Space with Nuno Salema
S1 E3 – I Sense You with Gees Boseker (of course!!! :))
S1 E10 – Inner Callings with José Abreu

Results Survey Core Energetics online

Survey Core Energetic Therapy Online

In this survey the Core Science Foundation explored the pro’s and the cons of online therapy in relation to Core Energetics (CE); a body orientated psychotherapeutic approach with specific concepts like Mask, Lower Self and Higher Self. The Corona pandemic and the social (physical) distancing that comes with it, has majorly impacted Core practitioners in their approach, which normally contains elements of physical closeness or physical contact.

Core practitioners were asked to fill out a short questionnaire, that surveyed their findings and experiences with giving online sessions, and they were asked to formulate recommendations based on their experiences. According to the outcome of this survey, Core practitioners manage to move along with the societal measures. They are very willing to keep supporting their clients in this time where all of us must cope with fear, loneliness and the big “not-knowing”. Core practitioners intend to support their clients in accepting feelings, releasing them, helping them staying connected with reality and taking health(y) responsibility.
