About This Workshop

Have you wanted to work more somatically but haven’t had the tools? Have you been aware of your client’s physical presence, the way they sit, a repetitive gesture, the tightening of their shoulders but haven’t known how to include it in the therapeutic process?

By bringing mindful awareness to the body – our own and our client’s – we begin to develop an exquisite sensitivity and attunement to others. Learn to listen and support the deep intelligence of your client’s physical experience. By slowing down and creating physical experiments in mindfulness, we bring awareness and healing to habitual and limiting patterns. In this one-day workshop, discover key principles of the Hakomi Method through talks, demonstration and experiential learning.

In this hands-on training, you will:

  • Find creative ways to work with the body that are gentle and effective
  • Learn to work experientially using gesture, posture, impulse, sensation, and touch
  • Begin to translate the language of the body into words, images and memories

For Whom

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

About Hakomi

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.
