To notice what arises inside, without judgement, is the essence of Hakomi and a pathway to deep and abiding healing. Hakomi is a journey of assisted self discovery, a journey through mindfulness to wholeness. The Hakomi method as developed by Ron Kurtz, draws from the vast worlds of science, spirituality and psychotherapy, yet the practice itself remains simple.
Look within. learn from yourself. Accept all your many parts, as they are. Be guided by your inner wisdom in all its many expressions. Allow any change to occur naturally, from inside out. Sometimes, however, we feel trapped in cycles of unnecessary suffering, and need a compassionate guide to help us along the way.
With the help of a trained Hakomi therapist, we develop the practice of mindfulness. This is an open way of watching ourselves, of witnessing what happens. We start by paying attention to present experience, as it is, in the body, now.
We want to learn about your implicit beliefs, and how you organize your life around them. We see how beliefs create the automatic behavior patterns that form the fabric of life.
Our intention is to create an experience of greater freedom of choice, and relief from unnecessary suffering, through the ever deepening and knowing of oneself.
The methods we use are gentle, experiential, often playful and almost always revealing. Nothing is imposed. We avoid analysis and allow meaning to arise from within.
