This introduction to HAKOMI MINDFUL SOMATIC PSYCHOLOGY is based on the notion that everyone with a conscience has an Inner Critic. This part of ourselves was formed in the psyche during childhood and it is trying to help us in our adult lives. Sometimes however, the Inner Critic becomes obstinate and overly critical especially of other Child Parts of the psyche. In this workshop we will utilize the Following Hakomi Principles to acknowledge, understand and hold compassion for the Inner Critic and the Wisdom of the Inner Child.

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

This workshop introduces participants to the basic principles and skills of the Hakomi Method to support personal and professional development. The goal of Hakomi is to uncover and alter unconscious motivations, beliefs and outdated frames of reference that negatively affect mood and relationships with self and others. The method uses experiments conducted in mindfulness and body awareness to gather information about unconscious processes. These techniques, coupled with the attuned presence of the therapist, access implicit memories and gently reorganize entrenched neural patterns.

In this workshop, you will: Learn how to turn awareness inward for self-study, and how mindfulness can infuse this exploration with a sense of curiosity and compassion. Explore ways the body archives experience and expresses our deepest beliefs about life. Practice using mindful experiments and the body to identify and eventually transform unconscious, limiting core beliefs.

 

Introductory Workshops

Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California

August 9, 2017

This workshop will provide an experiential overview of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy.    It is designed to offer in depth skills of assessment and intervention using present-moment experience in elegant and gentle ways to approach and transform core material. The Hakomi Method illuminates how we organize and embody core beliefs at the most fundamental levels of our experience. Through a combination of the awareness that mindfulness offers, the wisdom held in the body, and the safety of the therapeutic relationship, core issues can be explored.

In this workshop, designed for therapists and other healing professionals, we will engage in a number of practices that elucidate the Hakomi Method, and provide immediately applicable skills for working experientially with clients in creative and heartfelt ways. Through talk and discussion, live demonstrations, internal exercises, and experiential practice we will develop Hakomi therapeutic skills. See the Esalen website for more details:   CLICK HERE

Hakomi integrates mindfulness and somatics into the psychotherapy process with uniquely effective results:
The dynamic use of mindfulness is a foundation of the Hakomi Method. When introduced with Hakomi techniques, it creates a rapid, experiential access route to the unconscious “blueprints” and implicit memories which invisibly shape our lives. When unconscious, this material creates projections, conflict and disharmony in our relationships and self-perceptions. Once conscious and directly experienced, it is available for transformation and the healing of attachment issues.
