Identity, Mindfulness and Loving Presence: An Introduction to the Hakomi Method
SHORT SUMMARY: Our core identities—race, gender, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability—and our relationship to them have been shaped by biology, family, culture, and societal or systemic norms. In turn, our experiences with our identities shape our bodies, emotions, thoughts, and deeply held core beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world at large.
Presented by: Lorena Monda, DOM, LPC, Certified Hakomi Trainer and Therapist
Day 1 Event Date: May 16, 2020
Day 2 Event Date: May 17, 2020
Our core identities—race, gender, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability—and our relationship to them have been shaped by biology, family, culture, and societal or systemic norms. In turn, our experiences with our identities shape our bodies, emotions, thoughts, and deeply held core beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world at large.
In this experiential workshop we will use mindfulness to bring awareness to our core identities, the experiences that have shaped them, and possibilities for healing and transformation.
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.
All identities are welcome
