As a systematic study of experience, Hakomi provides a detailed model of how to intervene on the physical, emotional and mental levels.

The theoretical concepts as well as therapeutic Hakomi skills are taught, practiced and supervised. The curriculum includes: the healing relationship, working within the principles, states and maps of consciousness, character theory, the experimental approach, the flow of the therapeutic process and applying mindfulness in therapy.

The training has a high teacher/student ratio and employs a variety of teaching approaches: experiential exercises, lectures, demonstrations, discussions, group process sessions, expressive arts, supervision, use of video and study groups.

A new training brochure will be available soon. For now, please download the previous Hakomi Professional Training brochure for more information.

Teaching Team

Each training is taught by a team of Certified Hakomi Trainers, Teachers and experienced assistants. Faculty are members of the Hakomi Institute Pacifica Team.

The training will be under the over-all direction and lead of Certified Hakomi Trainer, Jules Morgaine. The training team includes Certified Hakomi Trainer Suhari Mommsen-Bohm, and Certified Hakomi Teachers Sarah Tait–Jamieson and Aladdin Jones. The training will also be supported by a team of Hakomi graduates who will assist as Tutors.

The Hakomi training is intended to build on existing skills. It is therefore preferable that participants have some background in psychology, counselling, social work, healthcare or prior experience working with people in a professional capacity. However, applicants who do not meet the above criteria will also be considered. Attendance of one Hakomi workshop is a pre-requisite for acceptance onto the training.
