An Introduction to the Hakomi Method






General Information

About This Workshop

How do we be true to ourselves while being in connection with others?

This daylong workshop will draw upon an array of Hakomi methods allowing us to experience where we stop ourselves — where our fear holds us back from letting life move through us — and where we can move further into connection.

We will specifically focus on mindfulness applied to relationship. We will explore the ways we show up in relationship and how they reveal unconscious patterns through which we see the world. The confines in which we live our lives will be illuminated and the possibilities beyond these confines will be explored.

This workshop serves as an introduction to the Hakomi Method of Experiential Psychotherapy and will include an experiential overview as well as include skills and theory that are unique to Hakomi.

About Hakomi
The Hakomi Method of Experiential Psychotherapy is an elegant, comprehensive and highly effective approach to human change. Hakomi combines mindfulness, the body, and present experience to access and transform deeply held, life-limiting core beliefs. For over 30 years Hakomi has pioneered and integrated the use of mindfulness in the psychodynamic process. It is backed by thousands of hours of clinical applications and research into the neurological underpinnings of mindfulness. Hakomi can be successfully applied throughout a wide range of therapeutic applications (such as individual, couples and family therapy, group work) as well as in educational settings to facilitate self-exploration and personal growth.
