About the Authors

Donna Martin, M.A.

Donna Martin, M.A., from Kamloops, BC, Canada, is a certified Hakomi therapist and international trainer who worked closely with Ron Kurtz (the creator of the Hakomi Method) for twenty years. She was named in his will as one of seven "legacy holders" of his work and is a senior person in the international training association he created before his death, now called the Hakomi Network.

Donna has many years of experience as a body psychotherapist, stress management specialist, yoga and meditation teacher, and addictions counsellor.

Donna has led Hakomi trainings and/or yoga retreats throughout Canada and the United States, Hawaii, Japan, Europe, Indonesia, South America, and Mexico. She has developed an original approach she now calls “psoma yoga therapy" which integrates yoga and Hakomi (mindfulness-based assisted self-discovery).

Donna has written many books which are mostly available through her website. She is the co-author (with Paul Brenner M.D.) of Seeing Your Life Through New Eyes, describing their original Family Triangles process for reviewing personal history and supporting insightful forgiveness and healing relationships. Donna also co-authored a soon-to-be published book with Ron Kurtz called the Practice of Loving Presence.

Donna is available for in-person (Kamloops) or phone or skype sessions at a fee of $100 (Cdn or US$) for one hour, or $60 for 30 minutes, which can be paid online through Paypal or credit card. The sessions can be personal (Hakomi therapy and/or Family Triangles) or they can be professional consultations about using Hakomi, Triangles, or psoma yoga with clients, (or teaching workshops, or doing conference presentations.) Often the sessions are a combination of professional and personal support, always in a Hakomi or psoma yoga therapy style. Please arrange for a meeting with Donna by emailing New clients are asked to pre-pay for the first session. Otherwise, an invoice will be sent following each session.
