Psoma: The Heart and Soul of Therapy

With Donna Martin & Shelley Winton

October 6 - 13, 2024

How can we assist someone on their healing journey without any suggestion of something wrong, something to fix? Can we recognize healing as an inside job… the unfolding of intrinsic wholeness, rather than a return to wholeness? Is it possible to be the kind of presence that is itself a powerful healing gift? What do we really mean by Presence?

Psoma is Donna Martin’s unique version of the Hakomi Method, which she inherited from Ron Kurtz. After working closely with him for more than 20 years before his death in 2011, she was named in his will as one of his “legacy holders”. Since then, Donna has continued to revise and refine the way she practises and teaches this approach to what Ron called “mindfulness-based assisted self-discovery”—what Donna now calls “Psoma with a P”.

Psoma comes from the Greek soma for body, and ps for mind/spirit. Psoma is an integrated mind/body/spirit approach to healing as wholeness happening. Psoma is a somatic approach to therapy, even more than Hakomi as it is usually taught. Donna’s and Shelley’s lifelong yoga practice informs this version. They teach Psoma as assisted healing rather than conventional therapy. Psoma cultivates wakefulness as the present-centered awareness that allows for choice and new possibilities.

In Psoma we are participating in the discovery and experience of new possibilities. The principle of non-violence (ahimsa in yoga) deeply informs the Psoma approach. In this week-long Psoma intensive, participants – with or without Hakomi experience – are invited to experience their own healing as a journey of remembering wholeness and to participate in another’s healing as a profound gift of Presence.
