Hakomi is described by founder Ron Kurtz as ‘assisted self-discovery.’  The therapist is attuned to and follows the non-verbal indicators of the client.  Non-verbal indicators may show up in many different ways such as tension in the body, a certain tone of voice, a look, a hand gesture, or a turning of the head.  These non-verbal indicators may be messages from the unconscious that upon further exploration lead to beliefs the client has about themself.  These beliefs may have been formed early in the client’s development or in the course of life and are out of the client’s conscious awareness thereby causing unnecessary suffering or stuck-ness in the client’s life. 

During a session, the therapist facilitates experiments based on the non-verbal indicators of the client.  The client enters into brief states of mindfulness to study their experience.  The sessions are a collaboration between the client and the therapist and follows the client’s innate healing capacity.  Sessions often lead to insights and to the creation of new healing experiences.  This method incorporates the Buddhist principles of mindfulness, loving presence and non-violence.  Hakomi can be done individually or in small groups of 2-4 participants who provide support in the process for a designated client.  Hakomi can be done in a single session, a series of group sessions, or as part of short-term or long-term therapy.
