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.

Somatic Wisdom for Skillful Action – An Introduction to Hakomi

A two-day workshop with Pernilla Siebenfreund, Certified Hakomi Teacher

BRISBANE: Sat 18 May—Sun 19 May 2019

To deeply understand ourselves, others and the world around us, we need to reconnect with our bodies. Our body is constantly responding to internal and external events. Most responses are deeply ingrained habits that were formed from experiences a long time ago. Some of these habits are really helpful in supporting us in living a connected and fulfilling life. Other learnt responses are more limiting, and they make us contract, feel disconnected, disempowered and fearful.

Bringing Your Self into Relationship: An interpersonal skills workshop

A two-and-a-half-day workshop with Dr. Karen Baikie

ADELAIDE: Fri 24 May—Sun 26 May 2019

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 another, in a way that can open the door to deeper understanding of both self and other, and ultimately deeper connection.

Listening to the Body with Mindfulness — An Introduction to Hakomi

A 2-day Workshop with Deb Algar, Certified Hakomi Teacher

SYDNEY: Sat 1 Jun—Sun 2 Jun 2019

WORKSHOP FULLY BOOKED. PLEASE REGISTER FOR WAITLIST: One of the most powerful ways to bring what is unconscious into conscious awareness is to pay attention to what is happening in the body in the present moment. In Hakomi, the body is seen as a “map of the psyche” — a door that can be opened to reveal all our unconscious patterns and beliefs and how they impact the way we live and relate to ourselves and others.

In and Out of Character: From Protection to Connection

A two-workshop series with Jules Morgaine, Certified Hakomi Trainer

ADELAIDE: Fri 25 Oct—Mon 28 Oct 2019

Character styles are formed early in life in response to our environment, around core human issues of contact, safety, need, dependency, separation, self-esteem, control, sexuality, competition and competence. These character styles create protective and supportive defences in our childhood, which later become unconscious and therefore outside our awareness. In adulthood, these patterns become limiting, making it difficult or impossible to fully achieve our potential in relationships, work, parenting and other aspects of our life.
