Bringing Hakomi’s Wisdom into the Heart of Your Relationships

As someone with a Hakomi background, you’ve already honed your skills in establishing attuned and compassionate therapeutic relationships. But how can we bring these invaluable skills into our everyday relationships where our needs matter just as much as the needs of the other person?

Enter the realm of real-life connections – with partners, family members, friends, and co-workers – where the delicate balance of understanding others and expressing our own needs becomes an art. 

While research underscores the profound impact of robust relationships on our health, happiness, and professional success, we often find ourselves entangled in less-than-satisfying interactions despite our yearning for meaningful connections.

The H.E.A.R.T® approach (Hakomi Embodied and Aware Relationship Training) developed by Halko Weiss bridges this gap. It offers a mindful guide for fostering intimate, rewarding, and engaged personal and professional relationships and aligns seamlessly with Hakomi’s principles, emphasizing consciousness over self-improvement.

This immersive workshop, taught by Halko and Maci Daye, internationally acclaimed Hakomi Trainers, will help you cultivate deeper connections through enhanced communication, mutual understanding, and the transformative power of mindfulness. 

You’ll Learn How to: 

  • Distinguish between every day and therapeutic relationships, understanding their unique challenges.
  • Master the “RIL” (Reciprocal Interaction Loop) for a holistic view of two-person interactions.
  • Navigate interpersonal dynamics by focusing on “states” or “parts” rather than surface issues.
  • Recognize different “being” states and their role in a person’s internal ecology.
  • Utilize five advanced mindfulness-based skills for cultivating mastery in relationships.
  • Harness the power of compassion and self-compassion to befriend painful legacy states.
  • Forge a transformative journey towards love.

Join us on this transformative journey as you bring the wisdom of Hakomi into the heart of your everyday relationships. Embrace the opportunity to evolve and love more skillfully, enriching the tapestry of connections that shape your life. 

Audience: This workshop is designed for: Hakomi Students, Graduates, CHT/P’s, and Faculty.
