Mindfulness is the development of an alert inner quietness. It is turning away from the outer busyness and the automatic habits of our daily routine toward a deeper place of authentic feelings, ideas, needs, and resources. In the East, mindfulness has been a primary tool for spiritual exploration for thousands of years.
The Hakomi Method of Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy is at the forefront of exploring mindfulness as a primary tool for connecting consciousness and the body. The body is the medium for all human experience. It communicates to us in the language of sensation, tension, relaxation, movement, gesture, posture, and flow of qi. Our bodies have information for us about our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. In this workshop, we will learn ways to track, access and use bodily felt experience as a vehicle for lasting transformation.
