Hakomi: An Experiential Introduction to Heart-Centered & Somatic Multicultural Psychotherapy

July 13


10:00 am – 4:30 pm


Hakomi: An Experiential Introduction to Heart-Centered & Somatic Multicultural Psychotherapy


Are you wanting to develop your skillfulness in how you can work with cultural differences in a way that is direct, authentic, and enlivening?  Do you want to know how to expand your client’s sense of safety with you and enhance their ability to navigate the specific challenges of their lives?  Have you heard about Hakomi but haven’t had the chance to explore it for yourself?

This workshop is an opportunity to explore the foundational principles of Hakomi as it relates specifically to our world of expanding complexity and global multiculturalism.  Not all questions cannot be solved simply.  Some questions must be lived.

Cultivating your ability to embrace both sameness and differences alike, inviting mindfulness, the mind-body connection, and creatively utilizing in-the-moment experiential exercises, offers a direct access route to deeply held patterns and beliefs.  This provides the client with the powerful opportunity for something new to organically emerge with in them.  This style of working creates an aliveness for therapist and client alike.

This course consists of two online learning segments:

  • 1.5 hours of self-paced learning (brief video talk, Hakomi, demo session, articles and handouts) that you’ll complete at your own pace in the two-and-a-half weeks prior to our live Zoom class
  • 4.5 hours of online instructor-led classroom training via-Zoom, with plenty of opportunities of experiential learning, including breakout groups where you can practice new skills in a gentle and safe environment and receive immediate guidance and feedback from your instructor.

 What you will learn:

  • The five basic principles of Hakomi and how they apply to psychological healing and growth
  • How to explore interdependency – embracing both sameness and difference
  • How to shift into loving presence, allowing your work with your clients to be safer and go deeper
  • Useful ways to increase your ability to track verbal and nonverbal behaviors
  • Hakomi’s unique approach to using mindfulness and the body to transform core wounding

Who is this for?
This workshop is open and relevant to both clinicians and the general public.  It also serves as prerequisite hours for the Hakomi Comprehensive Training.
Hakomi regions outside of California may require a 2-day introductory workshop (or two 1-day workshops) to satisfy the prerequisite for their Comprehensive Training.
