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.

Mindfulness Meets Eros: Navigating sexuality through mindfulness and connection

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.

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.
