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 4 Dec—Sun 6 Dec 2020

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.

The Joy of Re-Connection: Using the Organic Self as a Resource for Healing

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

WELLINGTON, NZ: Fri 30 Oct—Sun 1 Nov 2020

Our developmental experiences inevitably contain many cumulative incidents of wounding within which our needs are not met sufficiently. In order to protect one’s self from the pain of this the Self becomes fragmented into limiting parts that continue to unconsciously inform our sense of who we are and our expectations of life. While it is important to understand the source of fragmentation, in locating and re-embodying our Organic Self, a powerful source of wisdom, we free the Organic impulse to create the energy that may lead us towards our wholeness. The process of healing becomes effortless and joyful.
