Presence and CONNECTION: An introduction to Hakomi

Sat 21 Mar—Sat 21 Mar 2020

The most powerful quality we can bring to any relationship, including the therapeutic relationship, is our capacity to be fully present. From birth, humans are wired for connection. Being present and attuned is what creates a safe, empathic connection. Mindfulness is a key tool for developing our capacity to be present with ourselves and with others.

Deep Listening in Loving Presence: An Introduction to Hakomi

Sat 16 May—Sat 16 May 2020

Clients often present with issues that stem from neurobiological patterns that developed in the very beginning of their lives.

Bringing Your Self into RELATIONSHIP: An interpersonal skills workshop

Sat 30 May—Sun 31 May 2020

Relationships can be the place of our greatest healing. This can only happen if we are able to successfully navigate 
the challenge and pain that so often occurs when our deepest wounds are touched by another. But many people find themselves ‘stuck’ in their relationships, both intimate and non-intimate, repeating the same cycle of hurt, disappointment, anger and disconnection, with each new attempt to change their situation often leaving them feeling just the same as before. Mindfulness offers a unique opportunity for people to study the states that they get into in interactions with a partner, in a way that can open the door to deeper understanding of both self and other, and ultimately deeper connection.

About Hakomi

Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy is a mindfulness-based approach to self-understanding. Not simply part of the ‘tool kit’ in Hakomi, mindfulness forms the very foundation of the therapeutic encounter. Much more than a method or set of techniques, Hakomi is a way of looking at the world that is compassionate, mindful, curious, non-invasive, humorous and respectful.
