HAKOMI ESSENTIAL SKILLS
About This Workshop
Are you curious about ways to use mindfulness with your clients? Do you want more tools for including the body in therapy? Have you heard about Hakomi but haven’t had a chance to try it out?
This workshop provides an opportunity to learn the basic skills of Hakomi. It is open and relevant to both clinicians and the general public. Through brief talks and hands-on exercises, you’ll learn how to gain deeper access to clients’ unconscious material by using mindfulness, experiential exercises, and the mind-body connection. You’ll discover how shifting clients into deep states of mindfulness can allow you to access and transform limiting patterns not typically revealed by conversation alone. This way of working brings deep insight and aliveness for therapist and client alike.
In this workshop, you will learn:
- Tracking and contacting: how to track and use somatic cues like tone of voice, gestures, facial expressions and body posture to access unconscious material
- Mindfulness: how to assist clients to shift into a quiet, grounded state of consciousness that helps them to deepen their awareness and explore inner material that’s not easily accessible through other methods
- Accessing: steps for discovering the core issues that underlie your clients’ challenge
This is a hands-on workshop; you’ll have an opportunity to practice the skills you’re learning in a gentle and safe environment.
The workshop is open and relevant to both clinicians and the general public and serves as prerequisite hours for Hakomi Comprehensive Training.
Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy 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 30 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.
