That approach is called Hakomi, a powerful discipline at the intersection of psychotherapy, spiritual practice and neuroscience.
Hakomi begins with the recognition that we are multidimensional beings with complex biological, psychological and spiritual needs, yearning to experience balance and wholeness. As such, we need to be treated holistically, in a way that acknowledges, nurtures and integrates every aspect of our being.
The beauty of this healing modality is that it’s infused with principles of gentleness, non-violence, compassion and mindfulness — bringing together the best of the West and the East in an integrative and holistic framework.
If you’re like many healing professionals, you may be discouraged by not having the kind of direct and intimate relationships with your clients that produce positive results and foster more meaningful therapeutic dynamics.
Hakomi is one of the fastest growing integrated healing modalities because it addresses this challenge and others. It blends mindfulness practices with an experience-based somatic approach that holistically meets each client where they are.
If you’re unfamiliar with its background, Hakomi draws from general systems theory and modern body-centered therapies including Gestalt, Psychomotor, Feldenkrais, Focusing, Ericksonian Hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and many others.
The 4 Secrets to Creating Healing with the Hakomi Method virtual seminar will give you the opportunity to learn invaluable insights and cutting-edge practices from two of the world’s leading experts.
If you’re intrigued about using Hakomi professionally, you’ll learn key principles you can begin to integrate in your practice in a way that enlivens you and brings a deeper level of integration, connectedness and healing for your clients.
During this special event, you’ll discover:
During the session, you’ll undoubtedly have many “a-ha!” moments about WHY you’ve experienced certain challenges with clients — and how this gentle, integrated approach to healing can help you transcend them.
You’ll also hear about the exciting launch of a new online course that will teach you how to incorporate a variety of Hakomi principles and techniques in your healing work!
