Are you curious about ways you can integrate mindfulness into the moment-to-moment fabric of your therapy sessions with clients, rather than just using it as an add-on? 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?

Mindfulness, experiential exercises, and the body-mind connection offer direct access routes to clients’ deeply held patterns and beliefs. Instead of just talking about things, clients experience them directly and therefore gain deeper insight as well as tools for change. This type of work creates aliveness and creativity for therapist and client alike.

This workshop is an opportunity to learn the basic skills of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology, a method that has been utilizing mindfulness and the body for over 40 years.

This course consists of two online learning segments:

  • 1.5 hours of self-paced learning (brief video talks, Hakomi demo session, articles and handouts) that you’ll complete at your own pace in the two-and-a-half weeks prior to our live Zoom class 
  • 4.5 hours of online instructor-led classroom training via Zoom, with plenty of opportunities for experiential learning, including breakout groups where you can practice new skills in a gentle and safe environment and receive immediate guidance and feedback from your instructor.

What You Will Learn

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • The five basic principles of Hakomi and how they apply to psychological healing and growth

  • How to shift into loving presence, a little known state that allows your work with clients to go safer and deeper

  • Hakomi’s unique approach to using mindfulness and the body to transform core wounding

  • Useful ways to increase your ability to track verbal and nonverbal behaviors

  • How to make accurate and skillful contact statements

Who Is This For?

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

Hakomi regions outside of California may require a 2-day introductory workshop (or two 1-day workshops) to satisfy the prerequisite for their Comprehensive Training.
