Transform Your Loneliness in Just 2 Hours: Join Our Powerful Hakomi Method Events
The moment you bring awareness to your loneliness, it begins to change.
You don’t have to do anything crazy. Showing up and bringing your attention to feeling lonely initiates a neurological process that changes your brain’s shape. Attention shapes how your brain functions, its structure, and influences your perceptual, emotional, decisional and social functioning.
Practicing mindfulness hones your attention by strengthening brain synapses within a safe, present-moment container while reconnecting you with your body — the seat of your unconscious. Add mindfulness in the presence of others, and you’ve got a potent space for transmuting your loneliness.
For those who feel lonely, this is the transformative, cathartic power of our trainer-facilitated Hakomi method events.
Learn why heart-centered people of all types and backgrounds can benefit from building Hakomi skills in their personal and work lives — from the curious, lifelong learner or spiritual seeker to professional coaches, healers, therapists, educators and doctors.
The First Step: Acknowledge You’re Feeling Alone
It’s not just you.
It’s me. It’s us all. Everywhere.
Because loneliness has reached epidemic proportions. In May, the U.S. Surgeon General raised the flag on “the public health crisis of loneliness, isolation, and lack of connection” in the States. But the loneliness epidemic we’re facing knows no geographical or cultural boundaries.
Loneliness is a global issue.
"I thought 2022 being so far after the rise of the pandemic meant it would be a good year for me. I was recently newlywed. We'd bought a home and land in the countryside. I was doing my dream job in my dream role. It turned out to be the loneliest, darkest year I can ever remember." — Carolyn E., HEN Member
And while loneliness is a normal, natural part of our human experience, chronic loneliness combined with the technology-exacerbated “connection in isolation” of our modern world isn’t just impacting somebody else, somewhere else.
Canadian youth who identify as female report feeling lonely 2X more than any other age group in the country. And across the pond, U.K.-based experts in the field of loneliness and connection, Campaign to End Loneliness, reported last year that almost 50% of adults (or just under 26 million people) in the U.K. reported feeling lonely. Growing numbers of workers say they often or always feel lonely at work.
Feelings of loneliness are reaching a groundswell no matter who you are, how you identify, where you live, how long you’ve been alive or even what groups you engage with.
Name the loneliness you're feeling
So, first, we've acknowledged it.
But then we need to name it.
What’s the quality of the feelings of loneliness you’re feeling?
Is it a sneaking fear of being alone you’ve been sensing just under the surface of your life and relationships?
Are you in a relationship but still feel lonely?
Has it been a long-standing, chronic loneliness you can’t seem to shake?
Does your loneliness have a tinge of anxiety in it? Grief?
Or it morphs into depression.
Even in the company of others, do you still feel alone? Can you sense if it’s emotional loneliness you’re experiencing even when people surround you?
Let’s simply gather more information about your loneliness. We’re not here to judge it or make up stories about what it might mean.
Becoming a mindful observer of the quality of your loneliness can unlock the real, pathbreaking power of the Hakomi method that you’ll experience in our Hakomi method events.
Understanding How the Hakomi Method Approaches Loneliness
We live in our heads.
We’ve become mostly an over-thinking, strategizing, worrying, and planning human culture. This chronic, unconscious state takes us out of the present moment, our current experience, and our bodies. So, we end up living either in our past or our future.
Which means we give away the only intrinsic power that we have — in the truth of our present moment — to actually change our experience of the past or actively seek out a different future.
This is where your attention + the loving presence of another + a mindful space facilitated by a trainer certified in the Hakomi Method comes in.
Hakomi’s Mindfulness Somatic Therapeutic approach holistically and nonjudgmentally holds space for all of your experiences — whether past, present or future.
But the approach focuses on the present: What’s here right now? By being in the compassionate, loving presence of another who guides you into a mindful presence with yourself, the Hakomi process assists you in getting to know what’s present in your body and its relationship to your past or future. In mindfulness, with a skilled Hakomi-trained guide, you can explore an entire realm of inner experiences affecting the quality of your life that you may have never even noticed before.
Your body holds the key to understanding these realms of feeling, sensation, impulse, memory, color, quality, voice, and more, and the Hakomi method mindfully and lovingly helps you access them so you regain your power and begin living in the presence of your life.

Profesora, (Pamplona, España)
El Hakomi deja tu día a día, siempre positivo, siempre alentador
“Uno sale siempre, o yo por lo menos, algo fortalecida, vivificada de una sesión de Hakomi. Y me llevó eso, la buena sensación y ese eco que el Hakomi deja en tu día a día, siempre positivo, siempre alentador. Estas experiencias de Hakomi, aparentemente sencillas, tienen un potencial, a mi modo de ver, impresionante.”
Terapeuta y Formadora (Córdoba, España)
Me llevo mucho
“Lo que he aprendido de mi es que la vergüenza es un patrón muy nuclear. Muy arraigado y que tiene consecuencias muy extensas en mi personalidad. Es como haberme dado cuenta de que busco la aprobación y ese sentido de pertenencia. Ese anhelo he podido hoy sentir. El anhelo profundo de pertenencia y de conexión. Y cómo he creado mecanismos de compensación y mecanismos de adaptación para buscar en las relaciones la aprobación y cómo me he modificado a mi misma para encajar y para sentir la pertenencia.”
Maria del Carmen Romero
Terapeuta (Zaragoza, España)
Una grata sorpresa!
“Para mi esta experiencia ha sido liberadora. Aunque ya había trabajado en otras formaciones, había algo que faltaba. Y bueno, hoy me lo llevo. Porque desde un lugar muy cuidadoso, muy cuidadoso, hay una tranquilidad y una sensación de alivio y de paz.”
