Many other modalities integrate Pathwork lectures into their curriculum;
these 3 were supported by Eva and integrated into many Pathwork Transformation Programs.
Bioengetics is a way of integrating feelings, mind, and body. It was developed by John Pierrakos and Alexander Lowen. based upon Wilhelm Reich's theories of body psychotherapy and orgone energy. In 1967. John married Eva Brauch and integrated Pathwork concepts into his work, which became Core Energetics. This is the 'body work' that was part of the curriculum of the original Pathwork community led by Eva Pierrakos. After Eva passed in 1979, John continued this work as a separate modality. John passed in 2001. Core Energetics is taught around the world.

An Overview of the Pathwork Process
