Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy
Observing and studying our moment-to-moment somatic experience in mindfulness, we gain access to the unconscious beliefs and emotional blue-prints that lie at the foundation of our lives. As we develop the capacity to notice, name and meet our experience, we slowly unravel the limiting, habitual responses of our past, opening the opportunity for our lives to unfold with ease and grace. Embodied insight illuminates experience in a way we can trust.
Significant memories and early childhood experiences of connection form the blueprint of our emotional substructure. Hidden from our conscious awareness, buried in the body as implicit memories, these core beliefs are inaccessible through our left-brain, conceptual thinking. Despite our best efforts, these deeply ingrained habits of relating continue to persist.
As we learn to track the subtle language of the body, we gain access to a depth of awareness that sits beneath our stories and what we can access through talking therapies. Using mindfulness to attune to the subtle movements in the body, we slowly unravel the whole character and belief system that unknowingly rules our lives. As we do this, new dimensions and possibilities reveal themselves, allowing us to meet our lives with trust and creative potential.
Hakomi is a highly effective form of psychotherapy integrating the wisdom of Eastern spiritual traditions with leading-edge discoveries in the field of psychotherapy (including neuroscience, trauma and attachment research).
By creating an atmosphere of safety and welcoming all aspects of our experience, deeper processing can occur in safe and integrated way.
