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.

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

A two-and-a-half-day workshop with Jules Morgaine, Certified Hakomi Trainer

ALICE SPRINGS: Thu 18 Oct—Sat 20 Oct 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.  

Listening to the Body with Mindfulness: An Introduction to Hakomi

A two-day workshop with Deb Algar, Certified Hakomi Therapist

SYDNEY: Sat 17 Nov—Sun 18 Nov 2018

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.

Accessing Somatic Intelligence: Embodied Mindfulness for Growth and Healing

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

PERTH: Fri 30 Nov—Sun 2 Dec 2018

Early in our developmental history we created strategies to meet overwhelm and dysregulation of experiences we were unable to tolerate and metabolise at the time. These strategies are wired into neural networks and largely beyond conscious awareness but none-the-less continue to shape our life. The plasticity of the human brain leaves these neural networks open, flexible and ripe for re-ordering into more integrated forms. There is profound wisdom in the musculature and cells of our body, the symptoms we experience and our somatic intelligence in the moment.

Mindfulness Meets Eros: A Hakomi-informed approach to working with sexual issues in therapy

A three-day workshop with Maci Daye, Hakomi Trainer & Passion & Presence Founder

BRISBANE: Fri 1 Feb—Sun 3 Feb 2019

There is so much shame, secrecy, and misinformation surrounding sexuality that many therapists are reluctant to address sexual issues in therapy. However, individuals or couples who pin their hopes on having a rewarding, passionate and connected erotic life need help when problems arise in this area. This workshop introduces practitioners to Passion and Presence®, a mindful approach to both sex and sex therapy. It incorporates the spirit and many of the experiential and somatic techniques of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy.

The “Growth & Grit” of Intimacy: Creating a Cooperative and Passionate Couple Alliance

A three-day workshop with Maci Daye & Halko Weiss, Certified Hakomi Trainers

PERTH: Thu 7 Feb—Sat 9 Feb 2019

New relationships are often exhilarating and sexually charged. However, as our core material surfaces, we tend to engage in protective patterns that diminish aliveness and close off our hearts. Mindfulness and other elements of the Hakomi Method can help us go beyond the exploration of self in individual therapy to exploring interaction patterns that re-stimulate old wounds. We can use the instability arising between us to move beyond defense and become cooperative allies. Specific mindfulness skills taught in this workshop can help you and your individual and couple clients harness the growth-potential of relationship challenges to become more conscious and loving.
