(of Hakomi and the Re-Creation of the Self therapeutic models)
Mindfulness: a receptive state, curious and non-judgmental; focused attention on what is happening internally in the present moment.
Nonviolence: change without force; deep respect for the integrity, needs, strengths and limits of the other.
Organicity: within each person is the natural impulse towards growth and change; we honor the inner wisdom that directs the process of healing and development.
Mind-body holism: the mind, body and spirit are an interwoven whole; the body reflects important information from the whole person.
Unity: we are equal in worth; we impact one another and we are, ultimately, all in this together.
Loving Presence: a calm, open-hearted and attentive state of emotional connection; finding contentment in being with another.
These principles guide my work and my personal life.
