Hakomi Workshop

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.

In this workshop, you will: 

Be introduced to concepts used in Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy and Hakomi Embodied and Aware Relationships Training (H.E.A.R.T.®) for understanding relationships and interpersonal situations (including therapeutic relationships, intimate and non-intimate relationships) in a safe, supportive environment.

  • Explore the use of mindfulness as a tool for deepening relationships
  • Have the opportunity to study a specific relationship difficulty, with a partner, friend, parent, child, colleague, client or other.
  • Learn practical tools for exploring relationship dynamics & new techniques for addressing difficult interpersonal situations.

The workshop will include talks, experiential exercises, discussion and personal reflection. Participants will come away with skills that can be readily applied directly following the workshop, both with clients and in their own relationships. This workshop is suitable for those working therapeutically with both couples and individuals having relationship difficulties, as well as for individuals and couples wishing to deepen their own personal relationships. It will be of value to psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists and other practitioners who are interested in learning more about Hakomi or H.E.A.R.T.®
