Hakomi Body Inclusive Therapy
Hakomi Somatic Psychotherapy
"How do you stand in relation to these many realms?"
Hakomi a body-centered approach that combines somatic awareness with experiential techniques to promote psychological growth and transformation.
Hakomi theory holds the body to be a window to unconscious psychological material, and trained practitioners work to help those in therapy identify somatic indicators of unconscious beliefs and then bring these indicators into awareness, thus aiding the process of change.
Hakomi integrates principles of Eastern philosophy, primarily Buddhism and Taoism, emphasizing concepts such as mindfulness, loving presence, and empathy. The name is based on the Hopi Indian word that asks the question “Who are you?”
