Hakomi Workshop

Presence and CONNECTION: An introduction to Hakomi

A one-day introductory workshop with Dr. Karen Baikie, Certified Hakomi Therapist & Trainer

SYDNEY: Sat 21 Mar—Sat 21 Mar 2020











The most powerful quality we can bring to any relationship, including the therapeutic relationship, is our capacity to be fully present. From birth, humans are wired for connection. Being present and attuned is what creates a safe, empathic connection. Mindfulness is a key tool for developing our capacity to be present with ourselves and with others. 

In this workshop, you will: 

  • Be introduced to key methods and principles of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy, in a safe, supportive environment. 
  • Explore the use of mindfulness as both an attitude and a tool for use in self-study and therapeutic settings. 
  • Understand how attunement and limbic resonance can create a safe, empathic relationship. 
  • Learn and practice specific skills, including loving kindness, tracking and contact, that assist in creating a deeper connection with others, in both personal and therapeutic relationships. 

The workshop will consist of a balance of talks, experiential exercises, discussion and personal reflection,
with an emphasis on skills that can be readily applied directly following the workshop. This workshop offers the opportunity to get a taste of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy. 

It is suitable for those working therapeutically with clients 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, are considering enrolling in the Hakomi Professional Training or are wanting to enroll in From Trauma To Dharma Level 2 but have no prior experience with Hakomi.
