These retreats attract a wide range of guests who are genuniely seeking a transformational and inspirational direction in their lives.
All Core Energetics sessions are expertly guided by Ranil Sharma who was trained here in Australia and overseas for over 15 years and has been fortunate enough to study with the original founders of Core Energetics.
This is a psychotherapy method to work through key stages of your development with understanding at every level – emotional, physical, energetic and spiritual.

We all have belief systems that originate from the very early stages of life. In order to have a solid foundation in the physical world, these developmental phases need to be reasonably well met. When our needs are not met or over met, we can have severe responses emotionally, spiritually, physically and energetically. Wow! So I have heard of the body-mind connection. Is this where that came from?
Of course many traditional cultures have looked at health this way. The Chinese (TCM) and the Indians (Ayurveda) are probably the best known, but most cultures had a naturopathic and holistic lifestyle approach to health.Many of Ranil’s clients are professionals (healthcare and business). They come to see him because they feel stuck in a particular area if their lives e.g. career, relationship, finances. They are usually quite self-aware and focused on their own development and really want to take it to another level. They are ready to take a deeper level of responsibility for their feelings and lives.
Ranil will show how you how to work through these key stages, whether with others or for yourself, at every level – emotionally, physically, energetically and spiritually. This is a practical training so we will be working with each other to apply the teachings of Core Energetics Body Psychotherapy.
