Relational mindfulness for open-hearted lives
We are building a
for exploring the habits that separate us from ourselves and others; recover our innate healing power; and create lives that are more fully alive, joyful and connected.
It is from these places that healing and thriving emerge, and also the potential for collective change.
We draw on the Hakomi Method developed by Ron Kurtz (1934-2011), a pioneer in bringing together mindfulness with humanistic psychotherapeutic traditions. We do not seek quick-fixes nor forceful change, but rather, to slow down, listen more deeply and connect with ourselves and others in a loving space.
"The important thing...[is] to become a gateway,
through which the love which is present
can welcome the love that has been waiting."
Who can benefit from
Are you a therapist?
Surface unconscious core material and co-create healing experiences with your clients through deepening somatic tracking skills and attunement beyond the verbal. This gentle but profound method cultivates particular states of mind to find inspiration and nourishment in your clients, for authentic connections and as an antidote to burnout.
Are you a teacher or helping professional?
Relationships are at the heart of your work and with Hakomi you learn to listen beyond words, cultivate an authentic and loving presence, and how to be emotionally nourished, even in the most challenging of situations.
Are you interested in self-growth?
Explore the habits that get in the way of a more authentic and open-hearted life. When you bring awareness to the unconscious sources of your patterns, the possibility of healing opens up, more freedom in how to react from moment to moment, and ultimately, more free and fulfilled living.
We do offer trainings that fulfill the requirements for certification as a Hakomi Practitioner with the Hakomi Education Network. We do not offer psychotherapy trainings nor do we offer licenses for therapeutic practice.
"Hakomi is a path taken by those who work to go beyond
the half remembered hurts and failed beliefs
that linger unexamined in the mind and body [...]
This work is a part of that heroic labor,
a cousin to sitting meditation, to singing bowls and chanting monks."
"To notice what arises inside, without judgement,
is the essence of Hakomi and a pathway
to deep and abiding healing."
