Having studied with the founder of the Hakomi Method, Ron Kurtz, and having been named by Ron at his death as one of his legacy holders, her intention is to contribute to the development of Hakomi in the international community, and to mentor advanced students in the method.
Hi, I’m Angela and I’m delighted to be a part of the Vancouver Hakomi teaching team. Some of us have been growing and learning together since 2004! Sharing the learning journey with students, new and old, is a deep privilege for me. As well as being a Hakomi trainer I am also a Right Use of Power teacher and a registered clinical counsellor (RCC). I work both online and in-person where I live in Kamloops with my partner and two orange cats. When I’m not working, I might be found harvesting and preserving food in the summer, reading a good book with a cat on my lap in the winter or maybe sewing up my next creation.
Kenny is a Trainer with the Vancouver Hakomi group and has been practicing for over 15 years. He lives on the San Juan Islands in Washington state. He has two daughters and two granddaughters. He is an artist and a carver (his home is a very full gallery of his art). Parkinson’s Disease is taking its toll, but he still loves to participate in the energy that is Hakomi. He has been with Katie Askew (also a Teacher/Trainer/Practitioner, with the Vancouver Hakomi group), the love of his life, for 47+ years and is always amazed how the love just continues to deepen and grow.
Katie began her dive into Hakomi in 2004, along with her husband, Kenny. She finds tremendous joy working with others as a Certified Hakomi Practitioner, gently bringing the unconscious to the surface in order to make life more fun, easy and meaningful. She delights in sharing the Hakomi method with others through workshops, trainings and informal gatherings. She has been a massage practitioner since 2001 and loves working with the muscles and energy of the body. Connection is easy and important in Katie’s world, whether it is with her family, friends or clients.
