2017 HAKOMI COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING
Level 1


Hakomi Comprehensive Training is taught in two levels. Each level consists of nine 3 day weekends that run from March to December with August off. In Hakomi Comprehensive Training Level 1, you'll learn the basic principles and practices of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology. Whether you're a mental health practitioner, coach, counselor or body worker, this training will help you build innovative counseling and interpersonal skills that will increase your effectiveness with clients. Adding Hakomi’s somatic, experiential tools to your work will help you to go deeper with clients and discover the unseen root causes of their challenges.


For Whom

This training is open to psychotherapists and psychotherapy interns who want to learn the Hakomi Method in its entirety, as well as students of counseling and psychotherapy. It is also appropriate for coaches, clergy, body workers, health practitioners, educators, civil leaders and those interested in transitioning into the field of mental health.


What You Will Learn

In Hakomi Comprehensive Training Level 1, you'll learn through short talks, unique skill-based experiential exercises, supervised practice, demonstrations and assigned readings. You'll participate in regular supervised practice and receive supportive feedback by dedicated and knowledgeable teaching assistants. This feedback will provide opportunities to celebrate what's working, refine what needs attention, and to evolve personal edges that may be limiting your success. Our learning environment is relaxed and participatory with numerous opportunities to practice new skills with other group members, both in and out of class. 

In this hands-on, experiential training, you'll learn how to:

  • Energize and strengthen your work using Hakomi's inspiring principles like nonviolence, organicity, mind-body holism and unity
  • Use mindfulness to identify and transform hidden core beliefs driving self-defeating behavior
  • Gain greater self-awareness by mindfully studying your own limiting reactive patterns
  • Work from a compassionate, nonjudgmental state that helps clients feel safer and go deeper
  • Apply unique and innovative methods for melting client resistance and overcoming impasses in your work
