The Hakomi Institute of China is a professional educational organization dedicated to providing high quality trainings in Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology for practitioners in the healing arts and for individuals and groups who would like to live in a kinder, more compassionate, happier and more generous world.

Holding Hands

We offer workshops and trainings to healing arts practitioners, coaches, counselors, body workers, psychotherapists, pastoral counselors, educators, doctors and other helping professionals who value the Hakomi Method and its gentle and precise methods for surfacing and shifting limiting core beliefs and the models of the world, our selves and others that fundamentally our lives.

Group Hug

Hakomi has been taught and practiced worldwide for over 30 years. It combines body-oriented techniques with verbal interventions supported by unique guiding principles. These principles--body-mind holism, mindfulness, non-violence, unity and organicity--create a gentle and respectful frame for inner exploration, personal growth, and the gentle and deep transformation of unconscious core material.

All of our trainings are experiential and include time for practice. Teaching assistants provide supervision in a safe, gentle and encouraging learning environment. Included in our trainings are new findings and applications from the fields of trauma, attachment and developmental and interpersonal neuroscience.

We also provide workshops and retreats for the general public that utilize mindfulness to explore our essential selves, our relationships with each other with our natural environment and with ourselves.
