A warm welcome to the HAA web site. The word 'Hakomi' has been borrowed from the Hopi People, to describe the distinctive approach to body-inclusive psychotherapy developed in the USA in the mid-1970’s by therapist and author Ron Kurtz and members of his training staff.
Much more than a set of techniques, Hakomi is a way of looking at the world that is subtle, powerful, humorous and kind. Through workshops and professional trainings, Hakomi continues to put down roots in Australia with an increasing nation-wide community of Hakomi trainees.
The Hakomi Australia Association is a non-profit organisation incorporated in New South Wales. The organisation's inception dates back to discussions in early 2000, between graduates of the first Hakomi Professional training. Thanks largely to the dedication of a small group of volunteers, the HAA has continued to grow and develop and the organisation was formally incorporated in January 2001.
The Association’s principal aims are: to act as a peak body to represent Hakomi practitioners in Australia; to provide a vehicle for Hakomi graduates, trainees and other interested parties to network and exchange information; and to be the guardian of ethical standards for Hakomi in Australia.
