Hakomi integrates mindfulness and somatics into the psychotherapy process with uniquely effective results. Loving presence and the healing relationship are central to Hakomi.
We develop an exquisite sensitivity and attunement to others, using empathic skills to read and contact “indicators” - subtle, unconscious cues. This creates a deep sense of safety and connection, allowing us to engage the “cooperation of the unconscious.”
The dynamic use of mindfulness is a foundation of the Hakomi Method. When introduced with Hakomi techniques, it creates a rapid, experiential access route to the unconscious beliefs and implicit memories which invisibly shape our lives. When unconscious, this material creates projections, conflict, and disharmony in our self- perceptions, relationships, and behavior. Once conscious and directly experienced, it is available for memory re-consolidation and transformation, including the healing of attachment issues.
Hakomi is a body-centered (somatic) approach. The body is viewed as a “map of the psyche” - a door that can be opened to reveal the entire character and belief system of the individual. The body’s habitual patterns become a powerful access route to unconscious core material. This experiential process, although safe and gentle, evokes a powerful “felt sense” for the client, allowing them to take ownership of core patterns as they emerge, as well as their change and integration.
This workshop is for therapists, counselors, MFTs, social workers, allied helping/healing professionals and graduate students in these fields. We will experientially learn Hakomi principles and skills that are immediately applicable in practice. This workshop also fulfills the prerequisite for applying to the Comprehensive Training in Hakomi beginning in Durham, NC in the fall of 2021.
