The Hakomi Education Network (HEN) is an international group of people dedicated to preserving, developing and teaching Hakomi as created by Ron Kurtz, author of Body-Centered Psychotherapy: the Hakomi Method. During his life, Ron had made many changes in his original approach which he came to refer to as “mindfulness-based assisted self discovery”.
Hakomi Education Network is an association of people who studied with Ron from 1990 til his death in 2011. In 2001 a group of about fifteen people working closely with Ron decided to become the Hakomi Education Network (HEN). Many of us continued to study or teach with Ron throughout the rest of his life. Since 2011 we have had two international gatherings, the first in Vancouver Canada and then in Puerto Morelos Mexico in April 2013. We have members and teachers in Europe, Asia, North, South, and Central America. We feel connected as a world-wide Hakomi community which meets at least every one to three years in order to share ideas and inspiration.
Our center of communication is this website. We are deeply connected in our intention as a community. We are dedicated to teaching the principles and practice of Hakomi throughout the world in many cultures and many ways, each of us sharing our love of the unique spirit and expression of this work.
