Marcia Burton is a Certified Hakomi Practitioner 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 taught in England, Ireland, USA and Canada. Marcia has an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Since 2000, she has used Hakomi to support individuals and families experiencing the effects of bereavement, trauma, stress-related illness, cancer, and challenges in relationship. She currently works for Island Health Authority as a counsellor for those experiencing mental health and substance use issues. She is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BCACC.She has had a mindfulness practice since 1994, which includes a combination of meditation, qi gong, Hakomi, and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). “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 is a Trained Teacher of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and is offering 8 week courses in MSC on Salt Spring Island, starting in September 2016. (Look on Home Page under “Mindful Self Compassion” for details.) MSC is an evidence-based model, developed by Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff. Marcia is delighted to have found another mindfulness-based method that is as gentle as Hakomi. Both use individual mindful practices and exercises in small/large groups. The main difference being the emphasis in MSC is on developing emotional resources rather than on self-study. MSC offers a beautiful set of practices to enhance one’s connection to self, to encourage motivation through kindness not criticism, and generally to shift our attention towards being nourished by life, and away from being hard on ourselves.Marcia brings a combination of gentleness, compassion, humour and playfulness to her work. She lives on Salt Spring Island, with her husband, Bob Milone. She enjoys kayaking, gardening, playing pickleball, and walking on the beach.
