Hakomi Principles


To listen clearly, we must turn up the silence.



We are brilliant , self-organizing beings with an inherent impulse towards change, growth and healing. Life affirms life


Transformation without force. In reverence for the natural process which unfolds in safety.

Body-Mind Holism

Body-Mind Holism

The nature of body-mind is interactive, participatory and continuously affecting each other.


We’re in this together. We are interconnected and part of the same human process. We work collaboratively & non-hierarchically.


What is Hakomi?

Reducing stress and increasing self-awareness

The method is designed to assist a client in studying the processes that automatically create and maintain the person they have become in therapy.

Mindfulness entails a change in the quality of attention. Cultivating mindfulness in therapy allows clients to get beyond the limitations of ordinary consciousness based on habitual reaction, to observe implicit memory at work in the present-moment organization of experience, thus allowing access to the creative core organizer.

One of the oldest systems for understanding the organization of experience, and which forms the basis of the use of mindfulness in the Hakomi method, is the four foundations of mindfulness. These four foundations come from Satipattana Sutra.

Mindfulness of the body as the body
Mindfullness of sensations/sense impressions
Mindfullness of feelings & states of mind
Mindfullness of the objects of the mind itself

In the ancient Hopi Language,Hakomi means
“How do I stand in relation to these many realms”.
