& Julia Corley, Certified Hakomi Teacher & Therapist

12 CE’s | $235 early bird rate by Aug. 15, $275 thereafter

This workshop will introduce you to the basic principles and skills of the Hakomi Method as presented by Hakomi Institute. The method is an elegant and highly effective form of mindfulness-centered, somatic therapy designed to support self-discovery, healing and growth. Both therapist and client use mindful awareness to study the core organizers of experience: beliefs about ourselves, our relationships, and the world. We use “Little Experiments” in mindfulness to gently unearth our implicit beliefs and the hidden barriers to getting more of what we want in life. The curiosity, warmth, presence, and compassion of the therapist, what we call “Loving Presence,” creates a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere for the clients to explore themselves like never before. Clients are viewed as being whole, intelligent, creative, and resilient, rather than as problems that need to be fixed. The body is a trusted source of information on this journey, and the aim is to restore a sense of embodied wholeness, a deep re-membering of who we are. You will learn basic skills that have immediate personal and professional application in psychotherapy, counseling, and clinical social work, which may also be integrated with bodywork and other related modalities. This workshop also ful lls the prerequisite for applying to the Comprehensive Training in Hakomi, beginning in the NC Triangle in October 2018.

Customized Workshops and Retreats

I’d love to offer a workshop or retreat for you and yours.

What do you want to explore, nurture, let go of, celebrate, mourn, or punctuate?
Let’s create a sacred space for what has heart and meaning now.

My facilitation is grounded in years of personal and professional healing practice; my style is relaxed, loving, and spacious. I believe in having our time together be mostly experiential, so you don’t just hear about the subject matter, you feel it.

I can custom design something for you, or we can co-create it together. If you can gather a group of ten or more and cover my fee and travel expenses, I’d be happy to come to you wherever you are.
