Hakomi Workshop

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 the second half of this workshop, we will explore common sexual challenges in long-term relationships. An intimate relationship that includes a sexual component brings our most existential wounds into the foreground. For this very reason, it has the power to transform us at our roots, heal our most vulnerable parts and explore the art of mindful sexuality.

In this workshop, you will learn to:

  • Apply mindfulness as a tool and vision for conscious coupling
  • Analyze the structure of difficult relationship impasses
  • Examine the interplay of “Protector” and “Protected” states on intimacy
  • Shift the quality of your relationships with compassion and self-compassion
  • Use the extraordinary power of sexuality to promote growth
  • Add therapeutic skills to your practice of individual and couples’ therapy

The instructors will combine elements of Hakomi Embodied and Aware Relationship Training (H.E.A.R.T.®) and Passion and Presence®. These powerful relationship models grow out of the leaders’ careers as trainers of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy.
