What is Hakomi?

The Hakomi Method is grounded in 5 principles:

mindfulness | organicity | nonviolence | mind-body integration | unity 

Integrating principles of Eastern philosophy, primarily Buddhism and Taoism, Hakomi emphasizes concepts such as mindfulness, loving presence, and empathy while incorporating additional influences such as general systems theory and a range of body-centered therapeutic orientations such as Fendenkrais Method, Bioenergetic Analysis, Psychomotor Therapy, Focusing, Rogerian and Gestalt therapies.

Hakomi sessions explained by the founder, Ron Kurtz

The Hakomi Method is designed to make implicit organizing structures conscious and to relieve the unnecessary suffering by evoking the natural impulse that resides in every living thing, including humans.

Unconscious organizers - emotions, beliefs, attitudes, implicit learning, adaptations and memories - exert strong influences on our whole way of being in the world. Some of the unconscious core material and experiences create habitual patterns of suffering. 

By using precise experiments in mindfulness, unconscious beliefs can surface and new experiences become possible. Healing and transformation happen.

"Hakomi really helped me to look for the gift that everyone that I am working with is offering me."

Shelley Winton, Nurse, Team Leader and Hakomi Teacher

How is Hakomi Different?


The unique contribution of Hakomi to the field of psychotherapy is the use of precise experiments done while the person is in a mindful state, the purpose being to evoke emotions, memories and reactions that will reveal the implicit beliefs and early experiences that are influencing the person's habitual behaviors.
