Course Description:

As a bodyworker are very skilled at sensing what is going on in your clients’ bodies and at allowing that to guide your work. Hakomi gives voice to this processThis workshop will teach you ways to use words that help your clients be more present with their immediate felt sense of their bodies and be able to report that to you. You will learn to gently name your own sensing of their somatic experiences as you work. This process brings a profound integration of body and mind for you and for your clients.
