HEART SONG

A Music and Mindfulness Event with
Lior Tsarfaty and Rob Fisher


Co-Sponsored by Chochmat Halev 
and Hakomi Institute of California

 

Since ancient times, music has been used to connect us to our internal world and to help us explore different parts of ourselves.

We would like to invite you to a unique opportunity to celebrate the connection between sounds, voice, silence, music and our inner experience.

In this workshop we will explore your essential self through mindfulness and the soul connecting quality of music. No musical ability is necessary. You can be tone deaf! Music has the capacity to touch us very deeply, evoke our feelings, move our bodies and inspire our spirits. 

We are born with an innate sense of love, personal mission, natural self expression, authenticity and grace that often becomes compromised through the inevitable hurts and disappointments that wound us, and around which we tend to contract away from our essence. This workshop is designed to help you reconnect with what is deepest in you, the music of your soul, the richness of your own song that is longing to be sung.  You will be supported in embodying your own uniqueness in a safe, gentle and music filled environment where you can rediscover yourself in connection with others.

  • Experience the difference between your organic and your strategic selves.
  • Allow music to begin the process of healing the wounds which separated you from yourself and yourself from others
  • Reconnect with your own uniqueness
  • Connect with others from a place of authenticity and celebration through music
  • Listen to a small group sing specifically to your heart
  • Participate in music that will evoke your compassion for self others
  • Use traditional music from different parts of the world and modern exercises to bring our attention inward.
  • Use music as a tool for transformation and growth.
  • Experience the difference between your organic and your strategic selves.
  • Learn how to use sound to become more present to your inner self

This is a practical workshop that offers both a theoretical foundation for working with dreams and an experiential methodology that can immediately be integrated into therapeutic practice.


For Whom

The workshop is open and relevant to both clinicians and the general public and serves as prerequisite hours for Hakomi Comprehensive Training. Clinicians will leave with immediately applicable skills.

INTRODUCTION TO THE HAKOMI
CHARACTER MAP


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


For Whom

The workshop is open and relevant to both clinicians and the general public and serves as prerequisite hours for Hakomi Comprehensive Training.
