Hakomi body-centered psychotherapy, an experiential therapeutic method originated by Ron Kurtz, is often described as assisted self-discovery. It can be experienced in one-on-one therapeutic sessions, weekend workshops, or as an extended training. Each two-day workshop offers 12 CEUs (see below for more information).
Hakomi facilitates a highly attuned relationship between therapist and client and between participants in a workshop. This rapport supports individuals as they mindfully explore unconscious experiences that limit life or cause unnecessary suffering. This exploration results in increased clarity, creativity, confidence and awareness of the present moment.
