In Level 1 Hakomi Professional Training, you immersed yourself in the basic principles and practices of the Hakomi Method. In Hakomi Professional Training Level 2, you’ll expand your skills in Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy in three important ways: by developing your “selfhood,” refining your therapeutic strategy, and by working your personal edges as a therapist through in-depth supervised practice.

In Hakomi, developing your “selfhood” means expanding your capacity to work with even the most challenging clients and situations from a deeply mindful and compassionate state. Through targeted experiential exercises and supervised practice, our Level 2 training will help you explore your organization as a therapist and surface and transform unseen patterns that limit your effectiveness with clients. Therapists often remark that the deep personal work that unfolds during their second year of Hakomi training profoundly impacts not only their therapy sessions, but their personal relationships as well.

In Level 2, you’ll also refine your therapeutic strategy by learning to choose the tools and interventions that are most appropriate for your clients. Through brief lectures, demos, and in-depth supervised practice, you’ll learn to use Hakomi’s principles and practices to support clients much more confidently, fluidly and effectively. One participant said, “By the end of the second year of Hakomi training, I couldn’t believe how my skills and self-awareness had grown, and how much deeper I was able to take my clients. I also felt like a more humble, peaceful and compassionate human being.”

All teaching is experiential and includes time for practice and feedback. Trainers and teaching assistants provide direct and immediate guidance and feedback during supervised practice with an emphasis on specific clinical applications and skills development.
