What is Core Transformation?

The Core Transformation process offers an integrative, holistic, and graceful way to change unwanted thoughts, feelings, and habits, and achieve personal goals you once thought unattainable. This approach helps us develop and evolve as human beings, in all key domains of our lives: spiritual, physical, emotional, career and/or community contribution, intellectual, environmental, and social.


Have you ever consciously decided on a goal or resolution to change a thought, emotion, or habit, only to find yourself still doing the same thing?  Most of us have; we're human. Many times, when people fail to reach a goal, they feel shame or guilt, and almost as a result of this, they find their measure of self-respect decreasing.


Imagine if there were an easier way to change that actually increased your self-respect in the process.


The elegance of this approach is in its systemic nature. What is good for one part of you, or one of your life domains, needs to be good overall, for the whole of your life.


This means not only good for one domain or one period of time, but to have a solid measure of sustainability over time, and a synergistic effect on all of your domains at once.

There are countless stories of people who have gone headlong into the pursuit of a given goal or outcome in a given part of their life, only to have this "success" in reaching this goal or outcome have adverse effects on other parts of their lives.


The Core Transformation method takes a more holistic, or ecological perspective, making sure that the whole you can sustain health and a sense of well-being, over time and context.

What people are saying

Core Transformation takes us beyond assumed boundaries, into the virgin territories of the self–a place of greater courage and love, into the well-being of authenticity, the core of being. Dan Millman, author, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior and The Life You Were Born to Live.

“Core Transformation quickly takes you to the core of your being. What a powerful and simple gift! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to achieve higher states of love, peace and joy.”  Jack Canfield, author, Chicken Soup for the Soul

"Core Transformation offers a profound way to touch the depths of our own soulfulness. I had an immediate and deep experience of self-love with it."  John Bradshaw, author, Healing the Shame that Binds You, Homecoming and Creating Love

“I am astounded. Suddenly we have a bridge from psychopathology (or plain human problems) to enlightenment. There is stands, every beam in place, and traffic already passing over it. I know therapist types will make ready use of it, and I hope religions will embrace the profound implications of this fine new bridge to their territory.” Wilson Van Dusen, Ph.D., author, Returning to the Source: The Way to the Experience of God; former Chief Psychologist at Mendocino State Hospital, CA

"This book will take your there. There is no limit to the good Core Transformation could end up doing."  Hugh Prather, author, Notes to Myself

Research Supports its Effectiveness


An article published in the Journal of Counseling & Development in 2019 by Dinesh Braganza, PhD and his colleagues examined the clinical efficacy of Core Transformation on symptom experience and psychological growth. The results over the total 8-week study period indicated significant, moderate overall effect sizes for symptom experience, emotional stability, affect balance, global well-being, and purpose in life. 

Another article (2015) for the Journal of Religion and Health (also by Dinesh Braganza, PhD and Ralph Piedmont, PhD) indicated the effectiveness of Core Transformation in reducing symptom levels and improving overall spiritual wellbeing.
