FREE EVENT - BENEATH THE SURFACE

Understanding Behavior through the Lens of the Hakomi Character Map

 

General Information   

Description   
This year our Hakomi free event offers a look beneath the surface at the origins of what drives unconscious and hurtful behaviors.  The Hakomi Character Map of the psyche offers an in depth understanding of the most problematic patterned responses that many of us face with others, as well as with ourselves.  Recognizing and knowing how to work with these unconscious patterns helps release old stuck ways of being, creates compassion, and opens the door to healing and new growth.  
Through talks, demos, discussion and short experiential exercises we will explore aspects of character types and theirs roots in childhood development.

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

About Hakomi 
The Hakomi Method of Experiential Psychotherapy is an elegant, comprehensive and highly effective approach to human change. Hakomi combines mindfulness, the body, and present experience to access and transform deeply held, life-limiting core beliefs. For over 30 years Hakomi has pioneered and integrated the use of mindfulness in the psychodynamic process. It is backed by thousands of hours of clinical applications and research into the neurological underpinnings of mindfulness. Hakomi can be successfully applied throughout a wide range of therapeutic applications (such as individual, couples and family therapy, group work) as well as in educational settings to facilitate self-exploration and personal growth.

MINDFULNESS IN THE THERAPEUTIC PROCESS
An Introduction to Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology

 

About This Workshop 

In this one-day workshop, you'll discover how to use mindfulness to reveal emotional patterns held in the body that are not easily accessible through conversation alone. Through talks, discussions and experiential learning, you’ll learn how to slow clients down, shift them into a mindful state, and study their emotional patterns right in the moment they’re happening. As you learn to work with your clients’ present moment experiences with an attitude of curiosity and collaboration, your work with clients will go deeper and your sessions will unfold with more ease.

What you will learn:

  • Explore the power of bringing mindfulness and the body into your sessions.
  • Learn to trust and support your client’s unique unfolding.
  • Discover how present moment and live experience can be a gateway to unconscious material and a path to healing.


For Whom

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