Applying Dyadic Mindfulness in Your Work
Parts 1 & 2
Halko Weiss & Maci Daye
While traditional talk therapy relies largely on conscious awareness, research shows that explicit brain functions have only limited impact on our feelings and behaviors. In this experiential workshop, we’ll explore how to use Hakomi’s mind-body approach to transform limiting beliefs and mental models. It’s active, dyadic form of mindfulness can gently and rapidly tap into often ignored implicit brain functions—the learned but not remembered—to facilitate change at a core level. You’ll discover how to:
- Use dyadic mindfulness to foster exploration of the core beliefs shaping the client’s difficulties and secure attachment in the therapy relationship
- Provide needed experiences to promote reconsolidation
- Combine mindfulness and somatic methods to rewire neural connections and heal early wounding
- Help clients discover the difference between observing rather than reflecting on moment-to-moment experience
