In this workshop, you will learn:
· The five basic principles of Hakomi and how they apply to psychological healing and growth
· How to shift into loving presence: a little known state that allows your work with clients to go safer and deeper
· Hakomi's unique approach to using mindfulness and the body to transform core wounding
This is a hands-on workshop; you’ll have an opportunity to practice the skills you’re learning in a gentle and safe environment.
Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy offers an elegant, comprehensive and highly effective approach to human change. Hakomi combines mindfulness, unique and powerful somatic techniques, and a focus on present experience to access and transform deeply held, life-limiting core beliefs. For over thirty years Hakomi has pioneered and integrated the use of mindfulness in the human change process. It is backed by thousands of hours of clinical applications and research into the neurological underpinnings of mindfulness. Psychotherapists can successfully use Hakomi in a wide range of applications including individual, couples and family therapy and group work. The Hakomi Method also offers cutting-edge skills for coaches, health professionals and others who work to support human change and growth.
This course consists of two online learning segments.
1.5 hours of self-paced learning that you’ll complete at your own pace in the two weeks prior to our live Zoom class (brief video talks, Hakomi demo session, articles and handouts)
4.5 hours of online instructor-led classroom training via Zoom with plenty of opportunities for hands-on learning, including breakout groups where you can practice new skills in a gentle and safe environment
