TRUSTING WHAT YOU KNOW TO BE TRUE
An introduction to the Hakomi Method

 

About This Workshop

Where do we most want to go with our lives? What holds us back? 

In this workshop we will explore the states of mind and body/mind that characterize trusting oneself, and those that characterize mistrusting oneself. We will learn to witness through somatic mindfulness, our inner experience at the juncture between these self-states.  From this witnessing we can find greater choice and freedom. 

The day will combine both didactic and experiential modes and introduce participants to the Hakomi Method.  


For Whom

The workshop is open and relevant to both clinicians and the general public and serves as prerequisite hours for the Hakomi Comprehensive Training and Hakomi Professional Training, as well as specialized trainings we offer including Couples, Trauma, or Attachment.


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.
