Brent Morton is a Mentor at the HEARTraining®, a Buddhist meditation teacher, bodyworker, and a somatic provider using the Organic Intelligence® approach. Brent lives in Seattle where he teaches group meditation classes and provides one on one Organic Intelligence sessions.
His practice and training includes completion of a 4-year Buddhist meditation teacher training through Jack Kornfield and Spirit Rock Meditation Center; completion of the 3-year advanced training in Somatic Experiencing; continued mentorship with Steve Hoskinson and the Organic Intelligence approach to trauma healing; completion of a 750-hour massage training and licensure as a massage practitioner; completion of 3 yoga teacher trainings and 8 years of teaching yoga asan in a studio environment; 2 years of study of Craniosacral therapy through the Milne Institute; over 10 years of practice and study of Buddhist meditation, including over 50 silent meditation retreats and practice in Thailand, Burma, and India.
People typically come to see Brent for a somatic approach when they are feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, confused; when they have recurring symptoms that confuse other providers (easily “triggered”, digestive issues, panic attacks, auto-immune issues); because they are having problems with their close relationships or have issues with boundaries; because there is a specific issue they are coping with; because their identity is somehow in flux; because they are seeking growth and increased wellness; or simply because they feel something is “missing” and desire deeper meaning in their lives.
On a more personal note, Brent enjoys saunas and cold plunges, long philosophical conversations, beaches, nature, coffee, chocolate, music, sailing, good books, and unplanned international adventures.
