About: The Hakomi Method of body-centered therapy originated in the mid-1970s, developed by the internationally renowned therapist and author, Ron Kurtz. In 1981, to promote the teaching and evolution of Hakomi, Ron and his Training Staff founded the Hakomi Institute. Today, Hakomi Trainings and Workshops are presented throughout the world, from Eugene to Europe, from New York to New Zealand. The Hakomi Method is an efficient and powerful process for discovering and then studying mind/body patterns and core beliefs as you experience them.

Hakomi Experience:

Therapy is first about discovering. It’s about who you are and about what your deepest emotional attitudes are. It’s not just about who you think you are. It’s not opinion. It’s not something you can know with the intellect. It’s about who you are in the very heart of yourself. That’s the flavor of psychotherapy -discovering yourself, discovering your real attitudes toward the most important pieces of your life. It takes courage to look at yourself. It takes a real desire to know and a willingness to accept whatever is there. It helps to be playful too. At some point, you realize that the things you thought you were stuck with, your character traits, are changeable. You can be free of them. It helps if you don’t take these parts of yourself too seriously. Courage, a desire to know and be free, and playfulness–these are necessary. The journey is from “Who are you?” to “Who you are!” At the end you have consistency and vision. You know your needs and direction. You can say, “This I will do and this I won’t!”.

You have resolved many conflicts in which one part of you wants something and another part is against it. It’s not a final place you reach. The journey itself becomes a way of life. If it ends at all, it ends in enlightenment. The self one is interested in is no longer the individual ego, but the unbounded self of the spirit. Because, finally, that is who you are.
