Hakomi Central Team

The Hakomi Central Team is a richly collaborative group of Hakomi trainers and teachers. Working together since 2021, we have strengthened our curriculum and teaching through shared creativity and innovation. We hold a collective mission to make our trainings more accessible to people from marginalized communities in the U.S., both through the offering of scholarships and through our curriculum. Our team is a blend of both long-time Hakomi trainers and newer faculty, with more than 75 years of teaching experience among us.

We cap our enrollment at 40 students for workshops and 42 students for trainings. Enrollment caps create a more attuned and cohesive relational experience, especially during online events, allowing all students and staff to be seen together on one screen on Zoom.


About Our Trainings

We offer a Comprehensive Training that is a hybrid of Live-Online and In-Person training in North Carolina, as well as Comprehensive and Professional Skills Trainings that are Live-Online.
