Hakomi Coaching: Foundations of Somatic Coaching

November 10, 2023: Live-Online
Location: Online via Zoom
Hours: November 10, 2023 9:00 am – 11:00 am, PST
Faculty: Ketriellah Goldfeder, Certified Hakomi Practitioner

Active listening is a core competency for all coaches. But how do we really listen on the deepest level? A foundational skill of Hakomi Integrated Coaching is learning how to track and explore subtle, non-verbal, somatic cues (i.e., facial expressions, breathing, tensions, postures, and unconscious movement patterns) so that we can more fully coach the person and not just the problem. In this workshop, Ketriellah will guide you through basic tracking exercises so that you can become more sensitive to your client’s somatic experience and your own as well.

Plan to reserve 1.5 hours before the retreat to view recordings and an hour for an at-home exercise on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning.

Hakomi Coaching: The Embodied Coach

Location: Online via Zoom
Hours: March 8, 2024: 9:00 am –11:00 am, PST
Faculty: Manuela Mischke-Reeds, Certified Hakomi Therapist and Trainer

Embodiment is a fundamental practice and mindset in the Hakomi method. To stay grounded and emotionally regulated can be challenged with some clients. Embodiment techniques can help you to stay in your coaching seat and deepen the somatic experience for your client. This requires a recognition of what your personal triggers are and how to resource yourself while in your work. In this workshop, Manuela will share her real-life coaching tips, working with executive business leaders, and how to be present not just to your client but to yourself when facing challenges, obstacles, and stressful moments in the coaching seat.

Mindfulness Centered Couples Therapy – How to Use Mindfulness and the Body with Couples

July 13 and 27, 2024: Live-Online
Location: Online via Zoom
Hours: July 13, and 27, 2024: 9:30 am –5:15 pm PST
For Whom: Hakomi Graduates and couples’ therapists.
Prerequisites: None
CEs: 12 hours
Faculty: Rob Fisher, Certified Hakomi Therapist and Trainer

Mindfulness is one of the most powerful tools in couples’ psychotherapy by helping clients to step out of adversarial and into vulnerable and collaborative interactions. Through externally focused mindfulness, therapists can notice the subtle messages each partner communicates and help their clients to practice internally focused mindfulness that allows them to “act in” instead of “acting out” with each other. Working experientially, mindfully, and from an attachment perspective adds significant depth, impact and aliveness for therapist and client alike.

In this workshop, you will learn the principles and practical interventions that use present moment experience to:
● Gently access unconscious characterological organization, and
● Explore and change core interactional patterns in couples’ relationships.

Mixing didactic segments with demonstrations, experiential exercises, and actual skills practice, this training will provide both theory and techniques for practitioners to feel more confident and work more effectively with couples.
