Hakomi is a mindfulness-based approach to self-understanding. Much more than a method or set of techniques, Hakomi is a way of looking at the world that is compassionate, mindful, curious, non-invasive, humorous and respectful. Hakomi encourages you study how you meet the world, what kind of world you perceive, what beliefs you hold about yourself and so on. Gaining insight and understanding through your direct experience in this way, usually has a deeper and longer lasting impact than working things out with your mind only.

Mindfulness is paying attention to your present moment experience ie: any thoughts, memories, images, feelings, sensations, with an attitude of kindness, acceptance and gentle curiosity.
