The heart opens when we are intent on appreciation. Ron Kurtz, founder of Hakomi, said, “Loving presence is a state of being. It is pleasant, good for your health, rewarding in and of itself. It’s a state in which you feel open-hearted and well-intentioned.” This loving presence workshop teaches us how practice this specialized method of being present that leaves both speaker and listener feeling comforted, refreshed and understood.

Loving presence is often understood as holding the intention of being loving toward others; Hakomi illuminates this concept by introducing intentional appreciation. This added element transforms effort to effortlessness, and creates a flowering rooted in the soil of intention, the intention to focus on appreciating something about another, about ones self.

The workshop is comprised of short presentations alternating with exercises (done solo, one-on-one, or as a group), and is presented in a step-by-step format, allowing plenty of time to take in the material. Hakomi certified teachers are present during each session and offer direction and feedback in a manner consistent with Hakomi.

Teachers and trainers at this event are: Lynn Morrison, MA, CHT, certified Hakomi therapist and senior trainer; and Miles Springer, CHT, certified Hakomi therapist, teacher, and trainer.

Bring a notebook and pen if you like to take notes and a sack lunch (unless you prefer to go out). The lunch break is 1½ hours.

You’ll take home a new practice, an expanded skill set, and access to new levels of connection, mindfulness, relationship with others, and self awareness.
