We offer ongoing opportunities to experience the Hakomi approach. These workshops are stand-alone events in their own right and also form part of the prerequisite for application to the Hakomi Professional Training. Most offer a blend of professional development and personal growth. Workshops vary in length from one to three or four days.

Re-Learning Wholeness – Healing fragmentation with Mindfulness

A two-and-a-half-day workshop with Jules Morgaine, Certified Hakomi Trainer

NAPIER: Fri 25 Feb—Sun 27 Feb 2022

Even in the best of attachment and developmental circumstances we experience a series of ‘misses’ that our immature brain is not yet capable of metabolising. In order to continue to maintain relational connection and achieve developmental milestones the associated pain of these ‘misses’ is split off. This fragmentation that is at once an ingenious and adaptive survival strategy comes with a steep price – a disconnection and/or disowning of our most vulnerable and creative self.

Tapping the Intelligence of the Body: A Somatic Approach to Psychotherapy

A two-and-a-half-day workshop with Jules Morgaine Certified Trainer

WELLINGTON, NZ: Fri 26 Nov—Sun 28 Nov 2021

Psychological development and the associated neural connections begin in-utero and continue via the early formative experiences the child receives. As this process begins in the stage of pre-cognition there is later seldom any narrative or ‘remembered’ story that can help make sense of who we are and why we respond to the world in the way we do. Hence the limitation therapists and clients often experience in using techniques of traditional ‘talk therapy’. Through the skilful use of present moment experience in the body it becomes possible to gain access to this information.
