What is EKP?
EKP is Emotional-Kinesthetic Psychotherapy, a heart-centered, body-centered psychotherapy method Linda Marks developed and has taught and practiced for nearly twenty years. Working with the heart, touch with permission, the wisdom of the body and the intuitive guidance of the spirit, EKP creates a special sense of intimacy that deeply touches and transforms most all who participate.

Participants can be "client," witness or helper as an individual group member has a "turn" to do deeper heart-centered, body-centered psychospiritual work in the center. Since the electromagnetic field of the heart extends out 10 - 12 feet from our bodies, as we go deeper and open our hearts, we are all touched.

EKP helps restore our capacity as organs of perception. The skin is our largest organ, and a source of soul deep knowing, perception and expression. When our hearts and hands can work as one, we move beyond defenses safely and respectfully and find freedom, connection and expression.





Friday August 5  8:30 - 10 pm

at the home of Margaret Arndt and David Sneickus


This evening workshop provides an opportunity for you to be part of a healing community.  Using EKP, you will have a chance to literally "lend a helping hand," and experience the power of the heart that comes with literally "reaching out to touch someone," with permission, as part of a healing team.


Emotional safety is the foundation of EKP.  When we are emotionally safe, we are more aware of feelings, sensations and deeper thoughts in our bodies and hearts.  You will have a chance to listen to and care for your heart as you help create and hold a safe healing space for everyone's heart.  Experience what we mean when we say that in EKP, "when anyone has a turn, everyone has a turn."

Have you ever experienced a relationship where your partner said again and again that s/he loved you, yet left easily, and in a heartbeat without looking back?  This kind of experience leaves the one left behind feeling confused,

hurt, angry, shocked and just plain displaced.


If a loved one is able to leave that easily without remorse, it suggests that they were not entirely attached to their loved one.  If someone is truly emotionally attached to a loved one, they cannot just leave in the blink of an eye.  Leaving would create great pain, and a sense of profound loss that they can anticipate emotionally, and as a result, they are far more motivated to work through emotional difficulties to make a relationship work.

Pioneering Souls lFind us on Facebook

For visionary thinker Barbara Marx-Hubbard, her 80's appear to be a decade where her work is having an even greater impact than it did in her 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's or 70's. Marx Hubbard is trying to gather together people she identifies as "pioneering souls," spiritual social pioneers, to help create the social transformation needed to address the serious systems failures we are facing today and tomorrow.
Pioneering souls are people who can see and take action outside of society's existing (and failing) structures.  Rather than trying to fix what does not work or is stuck, these spiritual social pioneers are more interested in creating new structures entirely.  They are interested in designing ways of living, working and organizing that will create a healthier, more sustainable world.
While it is lonely and often isolating to be a visionary in a vacuum, when pioneering souls find each other and build a community, great things are possible.  Much like Lynn McTaggart's revelations in The Bond (see the next article in this newsletter), Marx-Hubbard believes the power for change rests in the collaboration and relationships of people, rather than in their sole efforts against old, stuck, monolithic structures.
Marx-Hubbard believes it is our job to lead the conscious evolution of the human species.  Our "human software needs an upgrade," and to help us make that upgrade, she has put together the Agent of Conscious Evolution Training, (ACE), a 12 week course, beginning August 9th

In her book, The Bond, Lynn McTaggart suggests that it is the relationships between objects--be they atoms or people--that make all the difference.  Life happens in the "spaces inbetween."

Here are some points she makes:

*  Subatomically, there is no such thing as an individual thing

*  Our bodies are created through so many complex interactions with our environment that they cannot be considered to exist independently

*  We understand actions of others by simulating the entire experience from a personal vantage point as though it were happening to us

My first blog at will still be active, but it is built in forum software, which many people find more cumbersome to use than official "blog" software.

In an effort to cultivate more dialogue in more contemporarily relevant ways, my new blog at is user friendly, and even something you can subscribe to.
Please let me know what you think of this new blog.
