Embodied Mindfulness


About Ron Kurtz, Founder of Hakomi

Ron Kurtz, DHL (1934-2011) (Doctor of Humane Letters), developed the Hakomi Method over a period of thirty-nine years, conducting workshops internationally beginning in 1968, and doing trainings since the mid-1970s.

Ron founded the Hakomi Institute in 1981 and Ron Kurtz Trainings, Inc. in 1990, and, with several colleagues, the Hakomi Educational Network (International). He also founded the Ron Kurtz Center in his home town of Ashland, Oregon in September 2010.

He wrote or co-authored three books: The Body Reveals, Body-Centered Psychotherapy, and Grace Unfolding.

In the last decade of his life, Ron continued to evolve and refine Hakomi, drawing from the ever-expanding fields of spiritual and physical sciences.

In 2008 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the U.S. Association for Body Psychotherapy.
