Which Hakomi Training is Right for Me?

The Hakomi Method is taught in two distinct training tracks: The Hakomi Professional Training is geared towards mental health clinicians.  At this time, the Hakomi Institute of California is only offering the Professional Training. The Hakomi Comprehensive Training is geared towards allied helping professions. This training is not currently offered by the Hakomi Institute of California but you can find full information on training by going to the International Hakomi Institute website.

Our next Hakomi Professional Skills Training will begin in the Fall of 2024. Applications coming soon.

Hakomi workshops are open to the general public and are a great way to support your personal growth, as well as working with a certified Hakomi Therapist.

The Hakomi Comprehensive Training is geared towards coaches, educators, spiritual counselors, body workers and health care professionals who wish to incorporate the Hakomi Method into their work.

Im a mental health professional

Our Hakomi Professional Trainings are for psychotherapists, and those on a licensure track, and others with equivalent skills and knowledge.

At this time, the Hakomi Institute of California is only offering the Hakomi Professional Training which is geared towards psychotherapists, those on a clinical licensure track, and others with equivalent skills and knowledge.

Level One provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the Hakomi Method and its therapeutic applications. Level Two continues to develop advanced skills and practices learned in Level One, introduces new maps to help refine participants’ application of the Hakomi method, and includes extensive supervision. And finally, the Certification Track offers personal and group supervision under the direction of Hakomi faculty.

Level 1: Foundational Training
Level 2: Advanced Training
Certification Track

Level One of the Hakomi Professional Training offers a thorough grounding in the theories and techniques of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy through a combination of live-online meetings and home-study materials. Brief online video talks and demonstrations are brought to life in our interactive, experiential training weekends. 

This training consists of seven weekend meetings. Training weekends include a mix of didactic material, experiential exercises, discussion, movement/embodiment exercises, and supervised practice times.

The goals of the training are first, to learn about the stages and flow of the Hakomi method grounded in the Hakomi principles and loving presence. Second, to become a more embodied therapist and deepen your ability to be present with  your clients. Third, learn to recognize and work with developmental and cultural shaping as you apply specific experiential techniques that bring the method to life.

Level Two of the Hakomi Professional Training, designed for those individuals who have completed a Level One, continues to develop the skills and practices learned in Level One. 

The goals of the training are first to deepen relational sensitivity and attunement to your clients.  Second, develop trust in your own somatic experience to work more intuitively.. Third, refine your ability to develop hypotheses through observation of clients’ somatic patterns and behaviors. Fourth, offer reparative experiences to help heal developmental trauma, attachment, and cultural wounds. Level Two includes extensive practice sessions with advanced supervision and feedback from staff to stabilize and integrate what’s learned.

Manuela’s path as a Somatic Psychotherapist, Hakomi Trainer, Movement teacher, meditation teacher, Psychedelic assisting therapist, and Group leader, has been motivated by the question: What truly heals trauma? Her discovery was to not rest in one modality alone for treatment answers but to meet the multifaceted experience of the trauma of how humans experience life: sensing, feeling, meaning, relating, and concrete practices to embody one’s life. 

Even though our human nervous systems are the same, we process fight, flight, freeze, and fawn in similar recognizable ways, the individual experiences and expressions are unique. To heal trauma we need to understand how trauma touches every aspect of a person’s life, their body-mind, relationship to spirituality, family, community, and indentities..We can’t understand the person’s individual trauma without the collective and historical shaping that has occurred, and how it impacts the now. We can’t understand the healing of trauma until we learn to be with the innate wisdom that is deep within the soma. 

Manuela’s personal healing path has been through deep immersive somatic journeys, and learning along with each client, student, and group healing over 30 years how to apply healing tools and techniques in relation to the complexity of being human at this time.

The Hakomi Certification Track offers group and individual supervision to graduates to hone skills and embodiment of the method. 

  • If you’re a licensed clinician, you can work towards certification as a Certified Hakomi Therapist (CHT)
  • If you’re a coach, pastoral counselor, bodyworker, self-awareness educator, or practice a related helping profession, you can pursue certification as a Certified Hakomi Practitioner (CHP).
