Hakomi Workshop

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.

Mindfulness is the means by which we become present and tune into the body. Listening to and exploring the body’s intelligence with curiosity and openness offers deeper insight, clarity and self-awareness than is available through just talking.

The guiding principles of Hakomi provide a framework to explore this with kindness, respect and safety.

In this Experiential Workshop you will:

  • Be introduced to the practices and underlying principles of Hakomi Somatic Mindful Psychotherapy in a safe supportive environment
  • Explore mindfulness as both an attitude and a tool to study your own experience and work therapeutically with others.
  • Learn how the body reveals psychological information
  • Experience exploring the intelligence of the body.
  • Learn skills to be more present with yourself and others

The workshop will include talks, experiential exercises, discussion and personal reflection – offering skills that are immediately applicable.

It is suitable for both those working therapeutically with others and those wishing to deepen their own self-understanding.

It will be of value to psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists and other practitioners who are interested in learning more about Hakomi and qualifies as a pre-requisite for the Hakomi Professional Training.
