The Power of Presence in Transformation: an introduction to Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology

December 7, 2019 - December 8, 2019


The Healer’s Presence is a powerful force in a client’s transformation. A warm, loving, and nonjudgmental attitude allows a client to deepen into self-study and opens the possibility for healing of chronic conditions of the body-mind-spirit. The safety of the practitioner’s presence can allow a client to gain a greater awareness of body. Exiled parts of self can emerge and heal.  Suppressed memories and emotions can be processed. The experiential training of Hakomi cultivates the practitioner’s personhood and presence. The training teaches you to become a better listener, both to content and subtle nonverbal cues. You begin to notice how and when you get “hooked” in the healing process and fall out of mindfulness and loving presence. This workshop is open to practitioners from varied modalities (psychotherapists, counselors, acupuncturists, body therapists, energy healers, etc) who want to learn theory and practices for cultivating their healing presence.

Saturday, December 7th, 10 AM to 6 PM
Sunday, December 8th, 10 AM to 4 PM
On Sunday we will meet from 4 PM to 4:30 PM to answer questions about the upcoming Comprehensive Training.
NOTE: the workshop counts as a prerequisite for the Comprehensive Training.
Rupesh Chhagan is a Hakomi Teacher and certified Hakomi practitioner, a licensed Acupuncturist/Herbalist, long-time meditator, avid rock climber, and new father. He has been in private practice in Austin, TX for over 15 years where he weaves together Hakomi with Oriental Medicine.
