Fundamentals of Hakomi Experiential Psychology


About This Workshop

This workshop will help you work skillfully with your clients to deepen toward the core of what organizes their unconscious blueprints for life. Accessing these blueprints leads to the pathways where transformation can happen. This day-long workshop is designed to teach some fundamental techniques of the Hakomi Method.

In this workshop you will learn to:

  • Create a stronger relational field and deeper attunment to your clients by tracking their somatic experience 
  • Access clients' internal experience by contacting what is at the core of their communication, both spoken and unspoken
  • Use mindfulness to facilitate the effective unfolding of the core beliefs and other unconscious material shaping your clients' experience

This workshop serves as an introduction to the Hakomi Method of Experiential Psychology. It will provide an experiential overview as well as skills and theory that are unique to Hakomi. 

For Whom

This workshop is open and relevant to clinicians, caoches, body workers and other helping professionals as well as the general public and serves as prerequisite hours for the Hakomi Comprehensive Training. Helping professionals will leave with immediately applicable tools.

About Hakomi

The Hakomi Method of Experiential Psychology 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 thirty 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.
