Hakomi Therapy

Hakomi is founded in the time endured principals of Eastern non dual
philosophy and spirituality. Its approach is non violent and mindful.
The method is designed to bring limiting beliefs into consciousness and free
the noose of these illusions which tend to bind us to our suffering, as both
inner and outer disharmony.

Hakomi is a method of assisted self-study and discovery. The body is a
living reflection of our unconscious and our past. Studying the body in
mindfulness opens doorways to deeper understanding and transformation
through examining and dissolving the root of our contracting core beliefs.
In a session, client and therapist together navigate unconscious material
using somatic awareness, and tracking nonverbal behaviours, habits and
These reactions are links to the unconscious mental processes that create
them. Once beliefs and memories are in consciousness, they are examined and
are naturally integrated.

client evokes safety and connection.

You will learn to work in mindfulness.
You will develop an understanding of mind body spirit integration.

The Principals
Mindfulness: The path of consciousness. Both a principal and a state of
consciousness, mindfulness declares faith in taking time to observe and
allow experience to lead the way, to relinquish expectation.

Organicity: living systems naturally tend toward harmony.
Mind body spirit holism: Recognition of the complexity and inherent
predictability of the whole by the parts, the interconnectedness and
influence of each aspect of living on all others

Non Violence: Reverence for life, the practice of going with the grain, not
forcing or efforting. Trust in organicity naturally leads to non violence

Unity: A participatory universe. About belonging being a part of, being
heard and hearing.
