Hakomi Method of Body-Centered Therapy
Hakomi Therapy is a body-centered psychotherapy based on the principles of mindfulness, nonviolence, and the unity of mind and body. It was first developed by Ron Kurtz and others at the Hakomi Institute in Boulder, Colorado in the 1970s. Hakomi theory is that from birth to adulthood, we apply meaning to our experiences, to the world, and to our selves.
These meanings become unconscious core beliefs, which determine how we think, act and feel.
They are so automaton-like that we are not able to be
fully alive, spontaneous, and loving. Practitioners are encouraged to focus awareness on feelings, moods, and attitudes.

Typically, they glorify their small efforts at service. They helped an old lady cross the street once last month and think that qualifies as important human service. They talk excitedly to a few friends about their latest experience and consider that talk to be quality service to the world, instead of recognizing such behavior as being primarily selfish-service."
