Marcia Burton is a Certified Hakomi Therapist and Senior Trainer. Marcia trained with, and continued to work closely with Ron Kurtz, creator of the Hakomi method until his death in 2011. She has teaches Hakomi in Canada and internationally. Marcia has an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Since 2000, she has used Hakomi to support individuals and families experiencing the effects of grief/loss, trauma, stress-related illness, cancer, and challenges in relationship. She teaches Hakomi for her local Hospice and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BCACC.
She has had a mindfulness practice since 1994. One of the many things I love about Hakomi is that it provides a framework for me to extend mindfulness and compassion into my daily life, my relationships, and my work. Hakomi reminds me to be inspired by life, and to trust the wisdom in ourselves as living beings, being blessed with a natural inclination towards healing.
Marcia brings a combination of gentleness, compassion, and playfulness to her work. She has a grown son and lives on Salt Spring Island, BC, with her husband and their dog. She enjoys kayaking, gardening and walking on the beach.
