Here’s what to expect:
This session will begin with a guided mindfulness practice, followed by a Loving Presence practice or two, to help everyone to quiet and relax the body and mind. This will be followed by a short break and then I will offer a demo of a Hakomi session with a volunteer participant. We’ll make time to have a discussion about the session afterwards.
This Hakomi event is the first of a series of half days, that will be posted nearer to the time. Each session will be kept small to help foster a sense of community and intimacy.
How the donations work: This is an experiment in generosity. I would like to make this workshop accessible to those on lower incomes. And I believe that there is a certain magic about generosity. I am offering this workshop as an act of generosity. I invite you to join me in your own act of generosity. At the end of the workshop, I will invite you, using mindfulness, to explore what a generous donation would look like/feel like for you. I will leave it to you to make the donation that matches what would give you a feeling of generosity.
Identity-based vulnerabilities: I have decided to offer this series of half days on a donation basis, in an effort to make Hakomi accessible to more people. Since the pandemic, I have been looking into issues of social justice and equity, and want to do what I can to participate in addressing this reality. I understand that many people experience identity-based vulnerabilities which could make a study of Hakomi difficult or nearly impossible. Having grown up with considerable white privilege, I am a beginner at understanding the depth of discrimination, distress and unease that is experienced by those who identify as BIPOC, gender creative, or otherwise non-conforming to dominant culture. Please know that you are welcome here!
I am going to keep this workshop small to build a sense of intimacy and community. Please send me an email as soon as you can if you are interested in attending, and I will let you know if there is still space, and will send you the zoom link: email@example.com
I look forward to working with you!
