Mind-Body Wisdom ~ Change from Within
“If you are ready and have the courage to take a deep and honest look at yourself, I’ll assist you. In doing this, you will bring into consciousness – and be able to make new choices about the normally automatic, non-conscious implicit beliefs which organize your behavior and run your life.”
Hakomi Founder Ron Kurtz
Grounded in the neuroscience of mindfulness, this gentle yet powerful mind-body approach (What is Hakomi?) assists you to create lasting and loving relationships with yourself and others based on safety, trust, respect, acceptance, openness, and curiosity.
Hakomi deepens self-awareness by following present moment experience with loving curiosity and mindful presence. This shift of attention allows you to awaken beyond defensive strategies, limiting beliefs, automatic habits, and outworn patterns and embody a less reactive, more responsive, spontaneous, joyful and loving orientation to life.
By investigating habitual cues from the body, the Hakomi approach quiets mental static to discover what’s beneath repetitive story lines. We track bodily signals and gestures, to bypass the conscious mind, the master storyteller and gatekeeper to your deeper experiencing self. Body awareness leads directly to significant core experiences that you might not have fully integrated or made sense of.
Many past experiences were too overwhelming or occurred outside of a loving context to be fully digested or understood. Our current reactive patterns evolved out of our past experiences. Because conditioned reactions occur automatically, we continue to relive the same adaptive patterns unconsciously.
Bringing unexamined experiences into awareness allows us to change how we relate from now on. Because memory is not fixed, we can bring love and understanding to situations that were painful or confusing to our younger selves. We can provide the missing comfort and nourishment needed to change the outcome of the story. Thanks to neuroplasticity, everything we learned in relationship can be relearned and experienced in the context of new loving and supportive relationships.
