WORKSHOPS & EVENTS CALENDAR

We offer ongoing opportunities to experience the Hakomi approach. These workshops are stand-alone events in their own right and also form part of the prerequisite for application to the Hakomi Professional Training. Most offer a blend of professional development and personal growth. Workshops vary in length from one to three or four days.

SYDNEY: Sat 25 Aug—Sun 26 Aug 2018

In this workshop, we will explore the Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy approach to dealing with resistance.

The Joy of Re-Connection – Using the Organic Self as a Resource for Healing

A three-day workshop with Jules Morgaine, Certified Trainer, Hakomi Institute.

PERTH: Fri 14 Sep—Sun 16 Sep 2018

Within us all there is a natural Organic impulse towards our wholeness and connectedness to self and life. This impulse supports the Organic Self, the most pure expression of our humanness, to lead us towards our own truth and unique experience of our being. While it is important to understand the source of fragmentation, by freeing the Organic impulse to create the energy that may lead us towards our wholeness, the process of healing becomes effortless and joyful.

Witnessing Hakomi: Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy in Action

A three-day workshop with Jules Morgaine, Certified Hakomi Trainer

ADELAIDE: Sat 27 Oct—Mon 29 Oct 2018

Hakomi as a method of psychotherapeutic exploration is based in Mindfulness as a means of accessing and studying the core organisation of experience within the individual.  Much of this information is encoded in the body: sensations, impulses, tension, trauma responses. It is in a deep understanding of the beliefs formed and decisions made in response that enable real change without constant effort to occur.
