Hakomi Workshop

Hakomi In Action: A Fishbowl and Experiential workshop

A three-day workshop with Jules Morgaine

Perth: Fri 24 Nov—Sun 26 Nov 2023

Written into the body, into the cells, the muscles, the neural circuitry, are our stories, our longings and our limitations, along with our habitual patterns and protective behaviours” [Jules Morgaine]

Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy has been a pioneer in both mindfulness and somatics and in experiential psychotherapy for over 40 years. Over time, it has expanded to incorporate latest developments in attachment theory, neuro-science theory and trauma informed somatic approaches. 

The Principles of Hakomi – Mindfulness, Unity, Organicity, Holism and Non-violence provide a strong container for client-determined healing processes. Experiential and effective methodology alongside a focus on curiosity and compassion support assisted self-discovery of, and potential to change, deeply held implicit core beliefs. The quality of the therapeutic relationship and provision of missing experiences creates development of new and more life-affirming core beliefs and changed neural pathways.

This three-day workshop will offer an opportunity to observe the Hakomi method of psychotherapy in action. It will be a combination of teaching, experiential learning and there will be an opportunity each day to observe a live Hakomi session with a workshop participant followed by a debrief.

What you can expect:

  • To experientially learn skills that you can immediately integrate into current psychotherapy practice and/or personal growth.
  • To gain an understanding of the overall Hakomi process in terms of accessing and studying core organization of experience as a tool to therapeutic change and transformation of core belief systems
  • Opportunity to deepen own self awareness and explore the impact of core organization within current life situation.
  • Opportunity for micro-skill development and practice through structured exercises based on Hakomi Principles and methodology.

This workshop meets pre-requisite for those applying, or considering applying, to undertake the Hakomi Professional Skills training beginning in Perth in February 2024. It provides an opportunity to make personal contact with training staff. For those familiar with Hakomi there is opportunity to deepen your practice through observation of full sessions. Others who wish to experience Hakomi either personally or professionally are most welcome.
