Re-Creation of the Self (R-CS)
The Re-Creation of the Self [R-CS], developed by Senior Hakomi Trainer Jon Eisman, is both a comprehensive map of the Self and a radical, highly effective method of therapy. Viewing the Self as innately resourced, R-CS seeks to identify fragmented states of consciousness, held as neural patterns in the brain, that perpetuate both our illusory sense of wounding, and the limited behaviors that follow. This Training teaches both the nuances of the model, and specific skills for transforming consciousness. Because the techniques are drawn from Hakomi, basic training in Hakomi is a prerequisite.

Experiential Couples Training
The Experiential Couples Training combines state of the art theory and practice of couples work with a somatic, mindfulness-based approach to communication and systems theory. The Hakomi Method is particularly powerful in its work with couples, in its ability to slow habitual interactions down in order to invite non-defensive study; identify family of origin and ‘real-time’ issues; and help partners create healthier and more satisfying relational styles. This training is usually taught in a two- or three-weekend format.
