What we will do?

We naturally answer the question “Who are you?” by saying our name. We can add details about our profession, where we come from, our age. We never respond: “I am my body… I am my hands, my legs, my chest. I am my heart“. And yet, without our body, without our hands, legs, chest, heart, we, in reality, are not. 

We tend to believe we are what we think. The truth is that from the very moment we are born – and even before – the body contributes to shaping the sense that we are. And for the rest of our life, it absorbs information through our interactions with the world. 

Sadly, the body is rarely contemplated as a source of information and inspiration in the therapy room or as a pathway towards healing deep wounds. 

This workshop aims to provide initial skills to encourage practitioners to discover, explore, and awaken the Self in their clients’ bodies.

What goals will we achieve?

Hakomi uses a set of tools that allow paying attention to our clients’ bodies – tensions, impulses to movement, postures, gestures – and working with this material emerging here and now. During the workshop, we will explore:
  • Working with the body: loving presence as the framework
  • Mindfulness and the body: going inside and noticing
  • Introduction to the Hakomi techniques of Tracking and Contacting
  • The body of the therapist
  • The body as a resource
  • The Embodied Self: why the body in psychotherapy


We will pay special attention to the participants’ bodies. As therapists, the ability to mindfully connect with our internal states and track their somatic counterparts is a prerequisite for promoting similar awareness in our clients.

Who is it suitable for?

Coaches, helping professionals, mental health professionals
