Selected members of our faculty offer Hakomi practice groups for students and graduates of our trainings. Practice groups focus on refining your Hakomi skills, deepening your understanding and practice of therapeutic strategy and developing your inner state as a practitioner. These small groups (usually 4 students) provide an opportunity to practice Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology in a live setting and receive feedback from an experienced certified Hakomi trainer.

All Hakomi practice groups currently take place online. We'll transition back to live meetings in the geographical regions listed below once we're able to do so. See dates, times and costs below, and please note that all times listed are Pacific time. You're welcome to contact the individual trainers listed below to find out about new openings in their groups. These trainers can also place you on a substitute list allowing you to participate in an existing group on an intermittent basis.
