Mindfulness and the Authentic Self
An Introduction to the Hakomi Method


 General Information

About This Workshop

How do we live authentically while navigating the complexity of our current world? We form ourselves in relation to our perception of the world around us and this determines the way we live our lives. How do we support life to come through us in an embodied way while being in relationship with others?
In this daylong, we will focus on aliveness and how we organize our experience around it. We will explore the ways we show up in relationship and how they reveal unconscious patterns through which we see the world. The confines in which we live our lives will be illuminated and the possibilities beyond these confines will be explored. This daylong also directly applies to how we engage with our clients when we are in our therapeutic roles.

About Hakomi
The Hakomi Method of Experiential Psychotherapy is an elegant, comprehensive and highly effective approach to human change. Hakomi combines mindfulness, the body, and present experience to access and transform deeply held, life-limiting core beliefs. For over 30 years Hakomi has pioneered and integrated the use of mindfulness in the psychodynamic process. It is backed by thousands of hours of clinical applications and research into the neurological underpinnings of mindfulness. Hakomi can be successfully applied throughout a wide range of therapeutic applications (such as individual, couples and family therapy, group work) as well as in educational settings to facilitate self-exploration and personal growth.
