As health writer Amanda Rankin from NOVA Magazine finds, the Hakomi Method is a welcome new modality in Australia, bringing with it abiding principles of goodwill, kindness and compassion. The article is reproduced here with NOVA’s permission.
Hakomi founder Ron Kurtz’s goal here is to place the Hakomi method within three different disciplines: scientific, spiritual and psychotherapeutic.
Hakomi is based on five principles: Mindfulness, Non-Violence, Mind-Body Holism, Organicity and Unity. Ron Kurtz explains.
This article describes some of the foundations on which Hakomi is based. As the piece indicates, Hakomi is alive, fresh and developing as new material is integrated and experimented with.
This transcription of a talk by Ron Kurtz maps Hakomi into General Systems Theory, information processing, learning curves of chaos and certainty, models of health and disease, living systems and dissipative structures.
