Hakomi 2 Year Comprehensive Training Program
WHAT IS HAKOMI?
Hakomi is a body-centered, somatic psychotherapy. The body is experienced as a door that can be opened to reveal the whole character and belief system of the individual. The body's structures and habitual patterns become a powerful access route to unconscious core material.
In Hakomi training, students learn to develop an exquisite sensitivity and attunement to others, and to convey this understanding. This empathy and responsiveness helps to create a deep sense of safety and connection, and facilitates the effectiveness of the therapy. The self-development of the therapist coupled with Hakomi’s highly innovative techniques together form the core of the training. Using the Buddhist principles of mindfulness and gentle curiosity, the Hakomi therapist creates an atmosphere of safety for deep processing that helps the client’s defences to be willingly yielded and examined, rather than confronted or overpowered. The relief and empowerment of increased self-awareness and freedom provides the client with a sense of personal empowerment and a richer appreciation for life.

YEAR TWO — Blocks 11-18
In the later stages of training, special attention is paid to each therapist’s personal character and style to help them fine tune their own creative, individual approach. Emphasis is on increasing fluency, refining skills, developing artistry, and studying advanced character strategy. Hakomi is an excellent base for any therapeutic modality and so we support students in finding their own style and creativity in the unique application of the work.Our professional skills training program takes place over the course of twenty weekends. The weekends are spaced out once per month in order to allow time in between for integration of the learning as well as practice of the techniques with your clients and fellow students. The first ten weekends introduce the arc of the Hakomi process as well as the techniques used; the following ten weekends deepen the learning through an exploration of Character and developmental injuries as well as the ethical underpinnings of the Hakomi method.Learning occurs through a combination of lecture, practice, and deeply experiential work. Hakomi trainings focus on expanding the practitioner’s range of skills and abilities while also creating a safe container in which to explore and more fully understand ourselves as therapists and as individuals.
