Mindfulness, Loving Presence and the Systems that Shape Us: An Experiential Introduction to Hakomi

Our bodies, thoughts, emotions, habits, actions, and the core beliefs we hold about ourselves, others, and the world are shaped by the systems larger than ourselves. We are shaped by the experiences, messages, and meanings from the family, cultural, societal and global systems which form the contexts for our lives.

This shaping begins before we have a developed sense of self and identity.

Traditionally, psychotherapy has focused on the family system as particularly impactful, but we cannot forget that the family system is shaped by the standards and norms of cultural, societal, and global systems, and can be a carrier of the messages and core beliefs embedded in those systems (in addition to intergenerational messages and corebeliefs). This shaping can be limiting and/or generative.

In this experiential workshop we will use mindfulness to bring awareness to the systems that have shaped us, and explore possibilities for healing and transformation of the limiting core beliefs arising from our experiences within these systems.

We will learn about and cultivate the practice of Loving Presence, in order to hold our own and each other’s experiences with reverence, openness, and love.

This workshop is dedicated to the development of allies and resources on the path to personal and collective liberation.

“Without inner change there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.”

―Reverend angel Kyodo williams
