Discover Hakomi: Mindfulness-Centered Somatic Psychotherapy

Core Material Composed of beliefs, nervous system patterning, sensations, memories, images, emotions and attitudes about self and the world – and related more often to early formative experiences – core material shapes our patterns of behaviour, our bodily structure and our experiences. (Hakomi Institute)

Through lecture, demo and practice exercises, this workshop will introduce you to:

  • The Basic Principles of the Hakomi Method;
  • Skills to promote mindfulness within ourselves and our clients;
  • Tracking for conscious and unconscious patterns to identify patterns of self-organization;
  • Understanding of the Sensitivity Cycle of needs and developing patterns of behavior;
  • Intervention strategies for helping clients move through defensive barriers and faulty neuroceptions.
