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.

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

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.
