Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy: An Experiential Introduction

  • 23 Sep 2023
  • 9:30 AM
  • 24 Sep 2023
  • 5:00 PM
  • Online using Zoom – Live and Recorded

In this two-day Hakomi introductory workshop we will explore client defenses and barriers to psychological expansion and wellness. Using the Hakomi principles of mindfulness, non-violence, unity, mind-body holism, and organicity we will learn how to embrace and work with stuckness and defensiveness. We will experiment with somatic techniques and therapeutic interventions that can soften client defenses and support clients to get curious about what blocks them from actualizing their intentions.

Saturday: 9:30am-12:45pm & 1:45-5:15pm
Break times: 10:45-11am, 12:45-1:45pm, 3:15-3:30pm
