Hakomi Heart & Art Experiences
Hakomi Heart & Art Legacy Intensives (detailed below) are open to everyone.
The experiences you gain can be applied for personal and/or professional growth.
“It is possible to set up a specific pattern of interaction between two or more people which enhances the probability of healing. When healing is possible, it is a spontaneous unfolding from within the person who heals. A significant influence on any healing process is the context in which it happens. When one person sets the context for another person’s healing, the most significant aspect of that context is the state of mind of the person creating it.” – Ron Kurtz

Intensive Programs: Therapy Intensive
3-4 Day Intensive Training
Time: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Mastering the Method therapy intensive and advanced training provides the perfect opportunity to:
- Teachers conduct four complete Hakomi sessions each day, demonstrating the use of the Refined Hakomi Method.
- All participants have an opportunity to serve as an assistant during the individual sessions.
- Teachers will conduct full sessions with participants who sign up in advance to sit in the client seat.
The Therapy Intensive format provides a rare opportunity to observe and assist in working with people live and to discuss each session in detail.
In a typical session, teachers will work with the client or couple using the latest version of his method.
This involves using techniques like: tracking, contact, finding indicators, guessing about the meaning of the indicator and creating an experiment as a way of working with it, with the client in mindfulness. Teachers will also use the technique of “following” in which the client’s spontaneous behaviors guide the next step in the process. The use of silence and comforting during integration will also be demonstrated.
This course provides the opportunity for twelve participants to experience a full individual session as one of the live demonstrations for the class. Individual sessions are secured on a first come-first served basis.
