The Hakomi Method combines the Eastern traditions of mindfulness and non-violence with a unique, highly effective Western methodology. Hakomi was developed and is applied primarily as an experiential psychotherapy, but is also designed to be integrated by other practitioners in a wide variety of contexts.
Hakomi is a body-centered, somatic approach. In a therapeutic context, the body's structures and habitual patterns become a powerful doorway to unconscious core material, including the hidden core beliefs which shape our lives, relationships, and self-images.
The Hakomi Method quickly accesses this core material, allowing it to emerge safely into consciousness. Once conscious, it can be re-evaluated, and where appropriate, powerfully transformed. New dimensions of awareness can be integrated, helping the individual to build a more satisfying and effective life.
Loving presence and the healing relationship are central to Hakomi. The process creates an exquisite level of sensitivity and attunement between practitioner and client, developing a deep sense of safety and connection which facilitates the effectiveness of the work.
