Bob and Marcia are two of the most amazing Hakomi practitioners and trainers in the world. They totally embody the work individually and as a couple.  I highly recommend any Hakomi workshop or training they are offering to anyone wanting to experience the essence and spirit of Hakomi as well as the practical application of the method.

We have been teaching together for many years.  Here are some comments made by some of those who have experienced our Hakomi workshops and trainings:

The group created a safe bubble for healing to happen and it just unfolded naturally. Having the experience of being in the loving presence of others who were attuned to my physical and emotional needs without trying to fix me or force something to happen allowed my body to align with my own self-healing. I could feel the physical shift in my body immediately and the resulting change has been lasting and permanent.   In my journey of transformation and personal growth, I consider this Hakomi experience a profound gift of healing.  LP

It has been a good fortune for me to train with Marcia and Bob!  They have a talent for holding space with deep attention, elegance and humbleness, and in this space I witnessed deep healing and learning, in myself and in others. My practise as a psychotherapist has been tremendously enlivened by Hakomi skills and more often than not these days, I now am able to enter into direct exploration of the unconscious in my clients, in a way that is safe,respectful and full of heart.I cannot say enough about Marcia and Bob- they are not just highly skilled practitioners and teachers of Hakomi method, they are both genuine, kind and full hearted people with whom you just want to hang out, and in whose presence, it is easy to feel that the world is all right.  MG

The Hakomi workshop reminded me of something that I had known before in my work but had lost somewhere along the way.  The spirituality in my work became buried in the details of the day to day job.  This  workshop reminded me of why I do the work and how to do it with  peace and purpose.  CD

I have experienced remarkable changes in myself in the time I have been studying with Bob and Marcia. Being a therapist for twenty years before being introduced to Hakomi practice, I found that my previous training and experience both enhanced and interfered with my ability to practice in a Hakomi way. I am grateful for the challenge and the gift. Hakomi has helped me to experience far greater compassion and loving presence with clients and myself. Bob and Marcia are gifted teachers and model their skills within their humour and humility. Learning and practicing in their presence is a gentle, affirming experience. JS

I think the difference for me between other workshops I have experienced over the years and this one was that “loving presence” is a given – everything takes place within that crucible so it is far less daunting to be vulnerable than other process oriented therapies.  JM

The workshop was great for its gentle welcoming inclusiveness. It is wonderful, and I think ‘so Hakomi’, that the highest level practitioners and an uninitiated non-therapist looking to ease his or her way in life could equally share a training circle. Without a doubt I will recommend trainings to my clients.  MT
