Join us for an online 2-session program on the Hakomi Method. This elegant approach draws upon the perennial wisdom of the East and leading-edge research on psychology and neuroscience. It integrates mindfulness with psychodynamic and body-based psychotherapy to support change without force.
The course leader is one of the Hakomi Institute co-founders and has offered training worldwide for 40 years. Halko will describe Hakomi’s unique approach to working with mindfulness and the body during the therapeutic process and guide you through practices that you can use with your clients.
Although we usually teach our programs through live events, this event is a new online opportunity to sample the method during the pandemic. It will help you decide whether to join one of the many introductory workshops and worldwide training programs that our international faculty of teachers and trainers will offer in the coming years.
