414 514 Speaking the Language of the Unconscious Part 1 & Part 2: An Introduction to Hakomi
Saturday All-Day: Two Part
While most therapy emphasizes talk, studies show that 70 to 80 percent of communication is nonverbal . . .
In this workshop, we’ll draw upon the principles of Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy to demonstrate ways of bringing more of this rich, nonverbal world into conscious awareness. You’ll learn how to decode the many languages of the unconscious, focusing on gesture, posture, pace, and voice quality, as a way to enhance a client’s moment-to-moment experience. We’ll discuss how to use mindfulness to help clients viscerally discover and change the underlying emotional patterns and models of the world that influence and limit their lives. You’ll come away with a gentle approach that goes beyond conversation to use the present moment as a doorway to experientially explore the unexpressed dynamics of a client’s psyche. (This session will continue with Workshop 514.) Rob Fisher, L.M.F.T.,
