Somatic psychotherapy is now recognized as a state-of-the-art approach to psychological healing in western culture. Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy, specifically, is regarded as one of the central contemporary body-centered psychotherapies, with applications to individual, couple, family therapy, group and organizational work. Mindfulness, a cornerstone of the Hakomi Method, is one of the most powerful tools available in psychotherapy. Hakomi uses mindfulness in ways that are quite different from most mindfulness-based therapies: not only to calm and self-regulate clients, but to study and transform the subconscious roots of their limiting attitudes and behavior. Working in this way adds significant depth, impact and aliveness to therapy for practitioners and clients alike. Theoretically, the Hakomi Method synthesizes western psychology, systems theory and eastern meditative practices in fluid, creative and elegant ways. Limbic resonance, affect regulation, the latest research in mindfulness and the brain are all reflected in this deep, collaborative and non-confrontational way of working.In this course, through presentations, experiential exercises, and demonstrations, you will learn principles, techniques and practical interventions that are immediately applicable to clinical work.
