is director of the Radical Aliveness/Core Energetics Institute of Southern California. She studied under Core Energetics founder John Pierrakos and teaches internationally. Ann’s Radical Aliveness model expands Core beyond the individual, to address community healing and world issues.
“There is a state in which you are fully alive, authentic, and spontaneous,” says Ann Bradney. “You are open to all of your feelings, and connected to your strength and your truth. You are not afraid to know anything about yourself or about others. You seek out and value the diverse perspectives we all bring, and you actualize your creativity and meet life in all its possibilities. In this state you are a force of nature, a presence that helps life’s greatest potential to emerge. I call this Radical Aliveness.
“Sexual energy and life-force energy are the same,” Ann Bradney says. “When we can experience ourselves as fully developed sexual beings, alive with vibrant energy coursing through our bodies, we feel more connected, creative, and excited about bringing our gifts to the world. In this deeply interactive workshop, you will be shown techniques to free up this energy and access more pleasure and fulfillment.
People in leadership positions who strive to be inspiring, influential, and highly effective must be exquisitely present, fully alive, and unafraid to know anything about themselves. When you can engage the powerful feelings of others without the need to control or tame them, that’s radical aliveness. When you can learn to hold a space where conflict and challenge are welcome because they serve as doorways to fresh insights, that’s also radical aliveness.
