Hakomi Workshop

Relationship: The Risk of Connection

A two-and-a-half-day workshop with Suhari Mommsen-Bohm

WELLINGTON: Fri 11 Oct—Sun 13 Oct 2019

In this world of increasing polarities we are becoming aware of how important it is to be in relationship, to be connected and inclusive; and how we are often not. Recent events in NZ have demonstrated the need for relationship and communication very powerfully.

There are many ways to be relational with self, with others and our environment, all creating within us unique somatic responses. In this workshop we will learn to discover body awareness and innate somatic intelligence, allowing the possibility of transformation and rewiring of neural networks. By becoming mindful we are able to lower the inner noise and see the other and ourselves in our vulnerability more clearly. 

Hakomi Psychotherapy can help develop our awareness of our body wisdom. Guided by this somatic sensitivity, we are able to discern our limiting core-beliefs that may prevent us from being present and fully relational without fear. In mindfulness we track, with compassion and curiosity, how we are relating to the other or even our selves.

Research shows that in therapy the “therapeutic relationship” is the container where healing takes place but it is ultimately in all relationships with self, others and the world that we are challenged, heal and grow.

In this workshop we will:

  • be introduced to the principles that are informing Hakomi Psychotherapy 
  • explore mindfulness in the body-mind connection
  • create a safe environment for the possibility of fresh experiences, and thus the possibility of rewiring the neural network
  • use body intelligence to guide us mindfully and explore how different relationships in our life impact on us
  • see Hakomi in action by observing a live Demo session.

This workshop meets the pre-requisite requirements for undertaking the Hakomi Professional Skills training due to begin in Napier in November 2019. It also provides a good opportunity to learn more about and experience Hakomi as a method of psychotherapy, and meet one of the lead trainers.
