Introduction to the Hakomi Method, 25th and 26th May 2018 in Geneva

On Friday May 25th evening, you will be introduced to the main concepts underlying the method and given a little taste of it’s way of working.

Saturday May 26th is an all-day workshop where the teaching method is similar to the therapy method, i.e. experiential. There will be short lessons, discussions, but mostly, the group will be guided through interactive exercises designed to convey the ideas being presented in practical, experiential ways.

Introduction to the Hakomi Method 2nd and 3rd of June 2018 in Zurich

Hakomi Introduction in Zürich
The Hakomi Method, created by Ron Kurtz, is internationally recognized for its sophisticated use of mindfulness for self study. It is a gentle yet powerful body-centered approach that reveals, heals and transforms the underlying beliefs and habits that may cause suffering.
Hakomi is used by psychologists, psychotherapists, bodyworkers, teachers, counselors, social workers, coaches and other helping professionals as a stand-alone therapy and as a adjunct of their current practice. Hakomi is also used for personal development for individuals outside of the helping professions.

In order to benefit from the experience…
You need to be ready to be with your own present experience. Yours reactions to the exercises, some of which are done in mindfulness, need to be studied and reported to your small group partner. You need to be comfortable leaning in this way, with your whole baldy, mind and spirit. You need to be able to stay focused on experience and you  need to be ready to go into a calm, inward focused, accepting state, allowing things to happen that you might normally suppress or avoid. You need to be willing to experience some painful emotions. There are your challenges.

The rewards
–  You will learn a modern, effective and scientific approach to helping people change.
–  You will gain a deeper understanding of yourself and others and a greater freedom to choose what you will do and feel.
–  You will find greater pleasure in everyday living and will be able to develop richer healthier relationships.
