Hakomi Workshop

Deep Listening in Loving Presence: An Introduction to Hakomi

A one-day workshop with Pernilla Siebenfreund

Brisbane: Sat 27 Mar, 9:30 am—5:30 pm













“If our clients could resolve their issues by using their willpower, and conscious, rational processes, they would have already done so” 
Marilyn Morgan

Clients often present with issues that stem from neurobiological patterns that developed in the very beginning of their lives. During this time, the learning happens in the relational interchange – right brain to right brain – between the child and their care giver. It happens without conscious awareness and the learning is stored in implicit memory where it can’t be accessed through rational processes.

In order to create an environment where these deeply held emotional and social habits can be transformed and integrated, the therapist needs to cultivate the capacity to attune to the client in a right brain to right brain resonance. This is a practice of deep listening in mindfulness with loving presence, and forms the essence of the healing relationship.

In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of how to cultivate this healing relationship, to become an instrument for therapeutic change and emotional regulation.
