Listen to your body... Follow your heart
Linda Marks has been a professional speaker, healer and teacher for thirty years. In the mid-1980's, she began teaching in Europe after being invited to present a workshop at the Findhorn Foundation in Forres, Scotland. She was invited back as a keynote speaker at the Gift of Spirit Conference the following year. And it was there she met Martin Leith, who brought her work to London. She brought her work to Switzerland, Sweden and Germany as well.
When Living With Vision: Reclaiming the Power of the Heart (Knowledge Systems, Inc, 1989) was released, the demand for her work in the United States began to grow. She has taught at many major consciousness teaching centers (Interface, New York Open Center, Rowe Camp and Conference Center, Kripalu, Whole Health Expos in Boston, San Francisco and Portland, Providence Learning Connection), and has spoken at many conferences (Association for Humanistic Psychology National and Midwest Conferences, National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine, Body Wisdom, US Association for Body Psychotherapy's First Conference, Rhode Island Occupational Therapist's Association Conference to name a few).
She is on the faculty of the College of Community and Public Service at UMass Boston, and has taught classes at Lesley University, the MIT Sloan School of Boston Alumni Club, and Mount Wachusett Community College.
She has appeared on National Public Radio, including New Dimensions Radio with Michael Toms and Wisconsin Public Radio. She was asked to appear on the Geraldo show, and appeared on the Montel Williams show in November 2005. She has appeared on local Boston area radio programs, internet radio ( "Love, Intimacy and Sexuality" with Chip August in 2008 and the United States Association for Body Psychotherapy leaders series in 2008), and on Boston's FOX 25 tv (the morning show with Kim Carrigan in 2009). Her work has been included in the Boston Globe and Boston Herald. She is recognized as a national expert on the emerging field of sexuality and spirituality.
In 1990, Linda founded the Institute for Emotional-Kinesthetic Psychotherapy, which offered a three-year, 1000 hour apprenticeship-based training program. She ran the program for 11 years, and in 2006, started apprenticing therapists again.
Linda has led two coaching classes, "The Money Class" and "Creating the Life You Want From the Inside Out" for more than twenty years. An early version of this class, "Money, Work and Personal Purpose," was featured in the Boston Globe in the mid-1980's.
