Workshop Introduces Heart-Centered Therapy

Linda Marks

Linda Marks, MSM, will be hosting an introductory workshop from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., July 23, on Emotional- Kinesthetic Psychotherapy (EKP), a heart-centered, psychospiritual method of body psychotherapy that she developed in the 1980s.

Using meditation, group sharing and EKP healing work in an emotionally safe space, participants will be provided an opportunity to turn inwards to listen to their body—a critical inner resource for self care and well-being— and translate body sensations, emotional feelings and deeper thoughts into important messages to guide one’s life.

When physical, emotional and mental symptoms are suppressed, it is difficult to get to the root of what ails someone. Marks’ work allows individuals to translate “symptoms” into important emotional and physical information that can both help them get to the root of what ails them and discover what is needed in order to heal.

Says Marks, “This form of mind-body psychotherapy can provide not only symptom relief, but deeper healing. By learning to listen to their bodies and follow their hearts, individuals can both feel better and healthier, and be more connected to their body’s information system to stay healthier and take better care of themselves going forward.”

Cost: $25. Location: 3 Central Ave., Newton. For more information, call 617- 913-0683, email or visit
