Essentials of the Hakomi Method: A 2-Day introduction on Bowen Island

I am delighted to invite you to a 2 day introduction to Hakomi Feb 16th and 18th  on Bowen Island.

Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology offers an elegant, uniquely effective approach to psychological change and growth combining a set of guiding principles with an experiential, mindfulness-based, body-centered method. The method allows us to access our inner world  beyond what conversation alone can reach. People are often surprised at how quickly they can uncover deeply unconscious material using the mindfulness-based methods that infuse every phase of our work. In this Introductory course, you will learn the basic foundational tools of the method.

Hakomi practitioners experience the body as a doorway to the psyche. They meet somatic cues as a roadmap that allows one to gently activate, study and transform the actual neural networks producing unwanted behavior and beliefs.

Hakomi is used by a wide range of helping professionals. Therapists, coaches, spiritual counselors, organizational development practitioners, bodyworkers, educators, health care professionals, and other helping professionals have also found Hakomi’s principles and practices a powerful adjunct to their work.

In this 2 day introduction you will learn:

  • Foundational principles of Hakomi
  • How to apply mindfulness in a therapeutic context
  • How to join deeply and create safety
  • How to track somatic signals to access unconscious material.
  • How to deepen towards core material in mindfulness
