We offer ongoing opportunities to experience the Hakomi approach. These workshops are stand-alone events in their own right and also form part of the prerequisite for application to the Hakomi Professional Training. Most offer a blend of professional development and personal growth. Workshops vary in length from one to three or four days.

Innate Somatic Intelligence™ Trauma Therapy Approach

An Immersive Hakomi Trauma Training for Therapists, with Manuela Mischke-Reeds, MA, MFT

Sydney: Wed 4 Dec—Sun 8 Dec 2024

Innate Somatic Intelligence™ Trauma Therapy (ISITTA™) is a somatic integrative therapeutic modality that addresses how trauma in the body can be safely released and awaken innate healing capacities. The ISITTA trauma work focuses on key somatic trauma practices that can be easily integrated into other therapy modalities. Based on the Hakomi method and principles, the ISITTA work gives the therapist the much-needed somatic tools to help clients integrate their trauma experiences. This immersive training has a dual purpose: train the therapists to be self-regulated and somatically wise, whilst working with C-PSTD trauma states and building a somatic trauma repertoire.

Listening to the Body with Mindfulness: Exploring Somatic Awareness

A two-day workshop with Deb Algar

PERTH: Sat 25 May—Sun 26 May 2024

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 how 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.
