WHAT IS HAKOMI?


Based on a trust that
everyone has the inner wisdom and power for self-healing,
the Hakomi method of therapy uses mindfulness, non-violence, and body awareness
to facilitate personal growth and transformation.


 

HOW DOES HAKOMI WORK?

Recognizing that mind and body jointly express and reflect our most deeply held beliefs about self and the outside world, Hakomi explores this mind/body connection to bring out core, usually unconscious beliefs, to conscious awareness. From the body’s structure, tensions, movements, sensations and impulses, we gain information about our self-image and general way of being in the world.

Hakomi’s exploration happens in a special state of consciousness called mindfulness.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM HAKOMI?

Easily available to almost everyone, Hakomi is a state in which one not only has experiences,
but is able to “stand outside” the experience to notice its qualities, specifics, and framework. Applying mindfulness to present experiences, we are able to search gently beneath our emotional attitudes and behavior patterns, to find the basic images, memories, and beliefs which shape our experiences.

HOW DOES THE THERAPIST USE HAKOMI?

Avoiding problem solving or advice-giving, emphasis is on re-evaluating these old, limiting beliefs and often, the childhood events that created them. We may then choose new, more satisfying options.

Deep healing of old traumatic memories can occur. Such self-study requires an environment of safety, and Hakomi is explicit in creating a safe, nurturing environment. We do this slowly and gently, and by continually protecting the client’s spirit.

We honor each client’s tremendous wisdom and self-knowledge. This attitude of respect we call non-violence. In this atmosphere, client and therapist can proceed on a truly transformative healing journey. Powerful learning and change can then happen.
