Hakomi has been taught and practiced worldwide for over 30 years. It combines body-oriented techniques with verbal interventions supported by unique guiding principles. These principles--body-mind holism, mindfulness, non-violence, unity and organicity--create a gentle and respectful frame for inner exploration, personal growth, and the gentle and deep transformation of unconscious core material.

All of our trainings are experiential and include time for practice. Teaching assistants provide supervision in a safe, gentle and encouraging learning environment. Included in our trainings are new findings and applications from the fields of trauma, attachment and developmental and interpersonal neuroscience.
