Hakomi: Presence in connection Friday, March 2nd 6 to 9 pm $35
This workshop will explore some of the key concepts in Hakomi as well as Somatic (aka Body-Oriented) Psychotherapy as a broader field. What do words like ‘embodiment', ‘mindfulness', 'non-violence', and 'mind-body holism' really mean? How do we experience those concepts in our bodies, lives, and work? What does our work look like if we move away from a pathologizing medical model of psychotherapy into one that is more holistic, relational, and embodied? And why does accessing a sense of play and creativity feel so important in this ‘serious’ work of therapy? These are some of the questions and topics we’ll dive into, and we’ll do so using a mix of discussion, didactic, and experiential exercises.
