About this title

Synopsis:

One of the seminal books in the body-centered movement in psychotherapy, the Hakomi Method integrates the use of mindfulness, nonviolence, meditation and holism into a highly original amalgum of therapeutic techniques. Hakomi work incorporates the idea of respect for the wisdom of each individual as a living organic system, organizing matter and energy to maintain its goals, and identity. It is written with clarity, humor and simplicity; sure to inspire and give insight to both therapists and laypersons.

From the Back Cover:

Hakomi is a Hopi Indian word which means "How do you stand in relation to these many realms?" A more modern translation is, "Who are you"., Hakomi was developed by Ron Kurtz, co-author of The Body Reveals. Some of the origins of Hakomi stem from Buddhism and Taoism, especially concepts like gentleness, compassion, mindfulness and going with the grain. Other influences come from general systems theory, which incorporates the idea of respect for the wisdom of each individual as a living organic system that spontaneously organizes matter and energy and selects from the environment what it needs in a way that maintains its goals, programs and identity. Hakomi also draws from modern body-centered psychotherapies such as Reichian work, bioenergetics, Gestalt, Psychomotor, Feldenkrais, Structural Bodywork, Ericksonian Hypnosis, Focusing and Neurolinguistic Programming. Hakomi is really a synthesis of philosophies, techniques and approaches that has its own unique artistry, form and organic process.
