THE RE-CREATION OF THE SELF
An Intensive Training in the R-CS Model & Method

      

Interweaving neurobiology, mindfulness and somatic, experiential psychology, the Re-Creation of the Self (R-CS) Intensive Training provides participants with theories and methods immediately applicable in both their professional and personal lives.

In R-CS, therapy is not seen as an exploration and gradual resolution of old wounds, but as a celebration of innate resources and an opportunity to re-embody an already existing core sense of Self. When, in our development, this sense of Self was opposed, we accommodated the various obstacles and hurts we endured—and protected our ultimate integrityby fragmenting our consciousness into various trance-like self-states.

Long held as habitual neural networks in the brain and body, these fragmented states of consciousness perpetuate both our illusory sense of wounding, and the limiting behaviors that follow. R-CS seeks to identify these perceived selves, and to foster disidentification from them. R-CS does not focus on the content or historical origins of these states, but instead invites people to learn to shift immediately into a more expansive, already present, preferred state.


What You Will Learn  
  

• A comprehensive and practical map of the structures of the Self    
• An understanding of the neurological basis of identity and stuckness     
• A clinically supported orientation towards client wholeness and resources, as opposed to pathology   
• Techniques to pursue the Ideal Self and the evolution of Selfhood     
• Refined methods for inspiring commitment and empowerment      
• New, scientifically-based perspectives on the actual nature of client change   
• Facility with navigating issues of identification and disidentification     
• Immediately applicable skills for shifting fragmented client states   
• An appreciation of the diverse roles of the therapist     


For Whom 
 
  

Grounded in mindfulness and somatic awareness, R-CS is an experiential method that offers mental health and other healing practitioners of all sorts an opportunity to enhance the effectiveness of their present work.

"The R-CS work has continued to have a profound impact on both my practice and personal life... I'm happy to say I've been going the distance with what I've learned from you, relying on blending intuition with courage. It's a combination that keeps me at my own cutting edge."    
—Paul Woolery, MA, therapist, White Salmon, WA     

"I feel so blessed to have been part of that process towards deep change. [The work] that you and I did around Organic Self was so expansive for me... I feel that I am in a totally different place in my life than ever before... Each and every moment everything is exactly the way it is supposed to be... all I have to do is lower the mental chatter and listen for the next "right step" in my life. I honestly, for the first time in my life, feel grown up, truly an adult."        
— Andrea Kober, LMT, bodyworker, Victoria, BC     

"[The Training] has definitely advanced my psycho-spiritual understanding and consciousness. Thank you for your gifted instruction and creative genius. I really think you're onto something with this R-CS work."

I continue to be tremendously grateful for the influence of this work on my own development as a therapist, teacher and human being.”    
— Manny Mansbach, MFT, Director, Center for Somatic Therapy, San Francisco, CA    

"Jon Eisman is one of the most talented, inspiring and brilliant teachers of psychotherapy I have encountered in a quarter century of taking workshops and trainings in this field. The R-CS model provides a major missing link in accessing the embodied, differentiated Self in elegant and non-violent ways."    
— Rob Fisher, MFT, Hakomi Trainer & Therapist, Mill Valley, CA

2019 HAKOMI COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING
Level 2

 

In Hakomi Comprehensive Training Level 2, you will deepen your Hakomi skills in a supportive community, receive coaching to help you break free of unconscious patterns that limit your success when working with clients, and learn powerful therapeutic maps and strategies for making your work with clients more effective and transformative, including the Hakomi Character Map. For those who want to take their Hakomi work to both the greatest heights and depths, Level 2 of the Hakomi Comprehensive Training provides the most complete path.


For Whom

This training is open to graduates of the Level 1 Hakomi Comprehensive Training.


What You Will Learn

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

  • Deepen your skills in contact, tracking, accessing, experiments and working with the child
  • Distinguish trauma from other types of developmental issues and support clients with a history of trauma
  • Recognize and shift limiting transference and countertransference patterns taking place between you and your clients
  • Use the Hakomi Character Map to deepen your own self-awareness and personal healing and strengthen your ability to be compassionately and mindfully present with your clients
  • Use principles from attachment theory to strength your work
  • Use the Hakomi Character Map and Sensitivity Cycle to make your client work more focused and effective

The curriculum for this training is framed around four general areas of study:

1. Enhanced Skills: We'll revisit the foundational Hakomi topics taught in Level 1 in greater depth. In addition to refining your existing skills, you'll learn sophisticated new techniques. We'll look more carefully at the ways the Hakomi Method allows clients to study present experience, you'll learn powerful somatic techniques for approaching the core of the Self, and we'll investigate in great detail how psychological change actually takes place.

2. Therapeutic Strategy and Maps: You'll learn specific and effective ways to understand and manage the overall flow of client work. This will allow you to shift from exercising instinctive, reflexive skill to makng deliberate strategic choices in supporting your clients' evolution. To support this more focused approach to client work, you'll learn powerful clinical maps, including the Hakomi Character Map, the Hakomi Sensitivity Cycle and Interactive Systems.

3. The Being of the Therapist: Perhaps most importantly, Level 2 focuses lovingly on both strengthening your individual resources and examining the personal obstacles you bring to your practice. In a spirit of support and caring, we'll work to identify and resolve specific psychological material that may be limiting your effectiveness. We'll also support you to find your own distinct style and orientation to working that incorporates your unique vision and talents.

4. Integration of Other Psychological Work: To ensure that you're a well-rounded practitioner, we believe that several key psychological theories and methods are important to integrate with the Hakomi Method. Level 2 will help you to integrate and strengthen your Hakomi skills with a basic understanding of trauma work, attachment theory and a Hakomi-inspired parts work method called Re-Creation of the Self.


Teaching Style

In this training, 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 from 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.

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING LEVEL 1

in Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy

San Francisco Bay Area


Hakomi Professional Training offers accelerated training for mental health professionals and interns in two modules. In the first module, Level 1, you will learn the principles and practices of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy through brief talks, demonstrations, and lots of supervised practice. In the second module (Level 2), you will learn via in-depth supervision, with a focus on developing the therapist's selfhood (including in-depth discovery of the patterns you get stuck in with clients), and hands-on practice integrating cutting-edge trauma techniques and attachment theory into your work. 

Learn more from Rob Fisher, MFT, lead instructor for this training:

 


Goals

In this training, you will experience first hand the principles and practices of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy and the unique intervention and treatment strategies which follow from them. Your work with clients will become deeper and more effective as you experience the precise moment-to-moment elegance of working with mindfulness and the body in psychodynamic psychotherapy.

In addition, because Hakomi is dedicated to enhancing the aliveness of both client and therapist, this training will place great emphasis on the attachment-based nature of the therapeutic relationship and on the ground of being from which the therapist works.

82“Come sit with me and let us remember
  the beauty of your soul”


What You Will Learn

In this training, you will learn how to:

  • Provide in-depth psychotherapy using the present moment and live experience as a gateway to unconscious material
  • Design and use interventions to access and transform clients' core models of the self, others and the world
  • Track subtle non-verbal communication from the unconscious
  • Apply mindfulness-centered, experiential methodologies to support enhanced safety, self-regulation and relationship skills
  • Employ somatic techniques to access unconscious material not readily accessible through conversation alone
  • Support resistance and psycho-emotional defenses instead of opposing them
  • Help clients experience and process regressed states to resolve long-term issues and behaviors
  • Recognize and address clients' psychological patterns using the Hakomi Character Map


Six Core Competencies You'll Develop

Strengthening the Therapeutic Relationship
How to access right brain to right brain limbic connection with the client, paving the way for unfolding into unconscious material; how to use moment-to-moment interventions to address and heal attachment wounds.

Observing the Unconscious
How to notice the workings of the unconscious in present experience and in non-verbal signals; how to use the present moment and the body to build limbic connection and uncover rich sources of psychological information.

Deepening Therapy
How to achieve the depth and exploration that makes therapy come alive; practical methods for deeply exploring the psyche; powerful interventions for safely working with thought, sensation, impulse, emotion and memory and exploring their origins.

Using Mindfulness Psychodynamically
How to use mindfulness-centered experiments to surface psychological material not easily accessible through conversation alone; differentiating between traumatic and developmental issues.

Supporting the Defenses and Transforming Core Beliefs
How to elegantly work with resistance and defenses by supporting them; transforming core beliefs and mental models of self, others and the world.

Working with Transference and Countertransference Systems
Practical and effective approaches for experientially working with transference/countertransference enactments that address the core of the client’s psyche.

 
Training Structure

Hakomi Professional Training Level 1 consists of seven three-day weekends from Friday afternoon through Sunday that take place roughly once a month.

Hakomi Professional Training Level 2 consists of six three-day weekends from Friday afternoon through Sunday that take place roughly once a month.  


Teaching Style

The training includes short talks, live and video demonstrations, skill-based experiential exercises, and supervised practice. Trainers and teaching assistants provide direct and immediate guidance and feedback during supervised practice with an emphasis on specific clinical applications and skills development.


For Whom

This training is open to licensed clinicians or those pursuing a clincial degree. It's designed for licensed professionals with limited time who would like to integrate portions of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy into their practices.
