Somatic Wisdom for Skillful Action – An Introduction to Hakomi

A two-day workshop with Pernilla Siebenfreund, Certified Hakomi Teacher

BRISBANE: Sat 18 May—Sun 19 May 2019









“Recovering our basic, inborn body has profound implications for healing the self, mending our broken relationships, and healing the planet.” 
Reggie Ray

To deeply understand ourselves, others and the world around us, we need to reconnect with our bodies.

Our body is constantly responding to internal and external events. Most responses are deeply ingrained habits that were formed from experiences a long time ago. Some of these habits are really helpful in supporting us in living a connected and fulfilling life. Other learnt responses are more limiting, and they make us contract, feel disconnected, disempowered and fearful.

Whether we want to savour the expansive habits, or create new choices for the limiting ones, we need to mindfully put our awareness in the felt sense of our experience which arises from the wisdom of the body.

To shift our attention from thinking to the felt sense is not always easy. Many of us avoid turning inwards as it sometimes comes with unpleasant sensations and feelings.

Hakomi is a method that fosters exquisite sensitivity to the body’s indicators of both challenging and more enjoyable responses, and it is steeped in loving presence, a state that allows us, as human beings, to feel seen, heard and understood.

In this workshop you will:

  • Get a felt sense of Hakomi
  • Learn some of the essential skills of Hakomi
  • Understand applied mindfulness
  • Connect with the wisdom of your body
  • Experience loving presence
  • Observe a live Hakomi session

This is an experiential workshop in which participants can expect to both explore the material personally and develop solid skills for facilitating healing with others. It also qualifies as a prerequisite for undertaking Hakomi professional training.

This workshop will provide 10 hours for Continuing Professional Development Programs.
