Mindfulness-Centered Somatic Psychotherapy, The Hakomi Method
Listening through the Body
Our bodies hold the memories of the traumatic experience we have endured in our lives. In the Hakomi Method of Mindfulness Centered Somatic Psychotherapy, we process these experiences using a facilitated mindful state, as a means to establish what was missing in the event of the trauma and to offer that missing 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.”
—Ron Kurtz, Hakomi Founder.
