I am pleased to be offering a 2 online hour Hakomi Circle through the Toronto Hakomi group. Before the pandemic, a “Hakomi Circle” was what we called a day-long gathering for a handful of participants. A trainer offered a few sessions for the participants present, and there was time to discuss the session afterwards, to enhance the participants’ learning of the method. Hakomi is a complex and artful method of healing, and it is usually taught in one or two small segments at a time, so that participants can gather the building blocks of the method, without feeling overwhelmed by all of them at once. Hakomi Circles give participants the opportunity to witness a session, either in the role of client, or in the role of observer/assistant. It provides us with an overview, and a feeling of the gestalt of it.
Adapting to the online setting, in 2 hours, I will offer one Hakomi session with the group. There will be time to discuss the session in depth afterwards. Depending on how our time unfolds, there may be the chance to try a Hakomi practice in pairs or small groups.
There is a certain kind of magic that can unfold when practicing this way. It is my experience that healing can unfold for more than the person who plays the role of “client” in a Hakomi Circle. When we witness another’s deep healing and unfolding while maintaining a warm-hearted presence, there is a feeling that the client is “opening the healing for the group”. We can find ourselves deeply touched by our shared humanity, and new insights about our intrinsic interconnection can arise.
I hope you can join us for this session. Please note that the information on Toronto Hakomi’s website is listed in their time zone (Eastern) and I have listed the information to include both Eastern and Pacific.

If this sounds interesting to you, and you cannot make this date, Toronto Hakomi has a couple more on their line up this summer, with a few different trainers. I also offer a monthly group called “Hakomi Half-Days” that has a similar focus.
