An extraordinary book that skillfully looks into the therapy process. -- Swami Alaya, Ph.D.author of Creative Use of Emotion.

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.

I recommend it to all that are working in any therapeutic field, be it counseling, psychotherapy or natural therapies.
It shows how to deepen the therapeutic process in a way that far surpasses any other therapeutic tool.
It is also a greet book for learning how to interact with others of all ages in everyday life.
It has such a respectful, simple and beautiful way to help us be conscious and heal.
It is a powerful method that helps getting to know ourselves, our unconcious, our habits, our beliefs, it helps us awaken, see how we create our unnecesary suffering. And also helps to give each other the respect and love we need.
It is a way that helps the love that is inside all of us want to come out naturally and be given to each other. Altough the book is not new and the method has grown too, it is still vigent and it is a revolutionary and fun way to heal and help others be awaken and free.
It has embeded Budhist and Taoist principles.
And the best of all!
It is a therapy that really works!
If you really do the work, you can change deeply without trying to change and transform your life.
I am a living proof of the miracle of Hakomi : )and i can only recomend you try it!
Blessings for all
