To be a student of Hakomi is to be committed to learning about yourself first, your assumptions and habits, and then learning how to be a presence for someone else who also has the courage to self study. This takes time and commitment and practice.
“Hakomi is a path taken by those who work to go beyond the half remembered hurts and failed beliefs that linger unexamined in the mind and body, hurts that act through barely conscious habits and reactions. This work is a part of that heroic labor, a cousin to sitting meditation, to singing bowls and chanting monks.”
