As new research is continually emerging to support the use of mindfulness in therapy, modalities rooted in mindful awareness are coming to the forefront as efficient, effective ways to tap into the root of the issues that clients bring to therapy. Based on the pioneering work of Ron Kurtz, Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy is rooted in five principles: Mindfulness, Nonviolence, Unity, Organicity and Mind-Body Integration. The Hakomi Method works at the level of ‘core material’ or core beliefs in order to effect not just situational change, but rather change at the most basic level of how we show up within our lives. By shifting the ways in which we organize ourselves in the world, we can significantly alter the patterns that hold us back. Clients are helped to integrate new ways of looking at and being in the world.
Hakomi is effective when used in both brief and longer-term therapy, and can complement many other modalities including trauma work.
