Hakomi therapy is a form of depth psychology combining Western psychology and systems theory with Eastern philosophy and body-centered techniques. Hakomis five principles include: mindfulness, nonviolence, organicity, unity, and body-mind holism. ‘Hakomi’ is a Hopi word, meaning ‘Who are you? — You are, who you are!’ or ‘How do you relate?’ Hakomi has evolved into a complex, elegant, and highly effective form of psychotherapy appropriate in most therapeutic situations, including work with individuals, couples, families, groups, movement, and bodywork. It is suitable for crisis work and psychological maintenance, but it finds its full potential in the processes of growth, both personal and transpersonal, when we are committed to moving beyond our limits.
