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.

Embracing Somatic Intelligence: Embodied Mindfulness for Growth and Healing

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

NEW PLYMOUTH: Fri 16 Apr—Sun 18 Apr 2021

Early in our developmental history we created strategies to meet overwhelm and dysregulation of experiences we were unable to tolerate and metabolise at the time. These strategies are wired into neural networks and largely beyond conscious awareness but none-the-less continue to shape our life. The plasticity of the human brain leaves these neural networks open, flexible and ripe for re-ordering into more integrated forms. There is profound wisdom in the musculature and cells of our body, the symptoms we experience and our somatic intelligence in the moment.

Re-Learning Wholeness – Healing fragmentation with Mindfulness

A three-day workshop with Jules Morgaine, Certified Hakomi Trainer

NELSON: Fri 14 May—Sun 16 May 2021

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.
