THE ART OF CONNECTION
An Introduction to Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology

 

About This Workshop 

The ability to connect deeply begins with the self. When we are connected to our own authentic sense of self, true openhearted connection to others becomes possible, which leaves us feeling more alive and engaged in our world. Unfortunately, the experience of heartfelt connection eludes many of us, often leading to experiences of misunderstanding, emptiness, and a diminished satisfaction in life. The Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology offers a road map for true connection. With the integrated use of mindfulness and the body, participants will be guided through experiences of self-discovery that elucidate how we hold ourselves in relationship to others. We will then begin to cultivate new ways of paying attention that are designed to increase connection, deepen interpersonal encounters, and encourage the experience of feeling alive in our bodies. In an environment of loving kindness, learning and fun, this workshop will nourish the soul, as well as create opportunities for self-understanding, growth and healing.

What you will learn:

  • A basic orientation to Hakomi
  • How to cultivate a sense of safety, sensitivity, compassion, and respect that inspires growth and healing
  • How to listen to and use the body to connect more deeply with life


For Whom

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

SOMATIC TOOLS FOR COUPLES THERAPY
Uncovering the Root of Relationship Challenges without Using Words

 

About This Workshop

Communication in relationships is strongly influenced by the non-verbal signals that couples send each other through tone of voice, eye gaze, body posture, quality of touch etc. Therefore, tracking the body and using experiential somatic exercises (called “experiments”) can be powerful tools for revealing and transforming couples’ unconscious patterns.

In this workshop, we will apply techniques from Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology, to working with couples. Therapists from any background or training will gain additional tools for identifying and transforming relationship patterns. This workshop also serves as an introduction to the “Experiential Therapy With Couples” training planned for later in 2018 and for other Hakomi trainings.

What you will learn:

  • Tracking somatic cues that point to attachment and other relationship patterns
  • Using the body to reveal unconscious patterns
  • Using simple experiments that can be applied to a wide variety of issues with couples
  • Developing familiarity with several Hakomi techniques


For Whom

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

INTRODUCTION TO THE HAKOMI
CHARACTER MAP


About This Workshop

This daylong workshop will introduce the Hakomi Method through the lens of the Hakomi Character Map. This map offers a complete set of character strategies—patterns of behavior, feeling and cognition that determine much of what happens in our lives. Many of the most difficult issues we confront are linked to the unconscious strategies that keep us feeling stuck, small, afraid, and unlovable, to name a few. However through awareness, practice and experience changing these patterns is possible!

Come join the teachers of our fall Hakomi Character Map Training for an enjoyable, enlivening exploration.

What you will learn:

  • A general understanding of the Hakomi Method
  • How to see and understand character patterns in yourself and others
  • How using the Hakomi character map can deepen your work as a helping professional


For Whom

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