Recommends it for: body workers, psychotherapists
Shelves: psychology
Excellent overview of the Hakomi Method. I've heard about it for years, yet didn't realize it was a therapy that incorporated touch. In particular, I LOVE the story at the very end of the book, an add on, of how he knew he would become a psychotherapist. He was a brave man who gave much to the world of humanistic psychology. Yeah for trailblazers like Ron Kurtz.

The principles his work is based on are used in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, which I am studying now. They are: Organicity or Living Sys

I love the Hakomi method, which I'm currently studying, and the book does a good job of synthesizing the model. I would have given it a 5, but for the poor editing. Regardless, I know I will be re-reading this book many times in the years to come!

Re-reading pieces of this--consistenly trying to integrate/experiment with these tools in my practice...it's neat stuff but can only absorb a little bit at a time.

Love the method, didn't love the book. Kurtz is brilliant but his book reads a little to much like gospel.

Really powerful way of thinking and working with the body and the mind. Even if you're not a somatic therapist, there are some good things to think about here.
