Abstract

The Lomi School is thirty-five years old and is known in the USA and Europe for its training of psychotherapists interested in developing skills in body-based and meditation-related therapies. Lomi counselors practice a body based approach to psychotherapy by concentrating on the whole person body, mind and spirit. This article is driven by a case study. In it the author assists a client in being mindful of whom she is in the therapeutic moment, and to inquire into the nature of her being and of her life. The Lomi techniques have developed over through an integration of ancient practices and modern techniques of focusing attention on the entire scope of being alive. This case study concentrates'on guiding the client to witness (t(through mindfulness) and unravel her past conditioning. In this way she carcan then discover her essential self and move forward into her experience of who she really is. (CCB)
