Certified Hakomi Therapists, Teachers, and Training in the Pacific Northwest.

The Hakomi Method

Seattle Hakomi provides workshops and training in personal growth and professional development in the Puget Sound region.

Hakomi is often described as assisted self-discovery. It’s an experiential method of psychotherapy originated by Ron Kurtz that is taught around the world. Seattle Hakomi offers weekend workshops and an extended training which includes a path toward potential certification.

“Tell me. What do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
~Mary Oliver

All workshops and trainings are appropriate for personal growth and professional development and are approved for CEUs for Licensed Social Workers, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Massage Practitioners, and Certified Counselors, and as a somatic education training program.

Individual Hakomi therapy sessions are known for the focus on developing rapport between therapist and client and following the client’s lead. Real suffering is part of life. But most of us also suffer unnecessarily. Therapists support clients in using mindfulness and gentle curiosity to explore past experiences that may have calcified into limiting beliefs that cause unnecessary suffering. The results of this exploration are often increased clarity and creativity, renewed confidence, and awareness of the present moment.

“To notice what arises inside, without judgment, is the essence of Hakomi and the pathway to deep and abiding healing.”
~ Ron Kurtz
