2014 Summer Workshop


We invite you to join us for our 4th annual 6 day immersion in Hakomi.  Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned student of Hakomi, this experiential workshop is an opportunity to take your next steps in learning and embodying the method.  The 6 day training focuses on practices in pairs and small groups, encouraging each participant to engage in the method at his or her own pace.  There will be opportunities to gain self-awareness, practice full sessions, experience the method as a client, and to receive support from Certified Hakomi Trainers.  Together, we create an atmosphere of light-hearted, patient gentleness and compassion to explore the Hakomi method.

Dates:  Wednesday, July 9- Tuesday, July 15

We take a day off in the middle to enjoy the famous Salt Spring Saturday Market, walk in one of the island’s many beautiful parks, or simply relax on the beach.

Cost:  $625 workshop fees for the 6 days

Venue:  Ango Retreat, Salt Spring Island  www.angoretreat.com

Accommodation is not included.  A broad range of places to stay can be found at:

2014 ‘Deepening’ Days

2014 Deepening Days

We are offering two ‘Deepening’ days this winter/spring for supported skills practice. The days are designed to assist advanced students with their learning of the method, primarily through supervised practice sessions. Deepening days also provide an opportunity for those newer to Hakomi to experience the method from the role of ‘client’, with a Hakomi student who is practicing a session. Deepening days are open to students, of any level of experience, who wish to attend. Participants may attend one or both of the days.
