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.
