INTRODUCTION TO THE HAKOMI
About This Workshop
This daylong workshop will introduce the Hakomi Method through the lens of the Hakomi Character Map. This map offers a complete set of character strategies—patterns of behavior, feeling and cognition that determine much of what happens in our lives. Many of the most difficult issues we confront are linked to the unconscious strategies that keep us feeling stuck, small, afraid, and unlovable, to name a few. However through awareness, practice and experience changing these patterns is possible!
Come join the teachers of our fall Hakomi Character Map Training for an enjoyable, enlivening exploration.
What you will learn:
- A general understanding of the Hakomi Method
- How to see and understand character patterns in yourself and others
- How using the Hakomi character map can deepen your work as a helping professional
The workshop is open and relevant to both clinicians and the general public and serves as prerequisite hours for Hakomi Comprehensive Training.
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 30 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.
