Maggie Horton-Brande joined the Organic Intelligence® team as Coordinator for the San Francisco/Burlingame HEARTraining®. Her personal transformation and work with bodywork and Somatic Experiencing clients continues to elevate her love and respect for OI's healing principles.
Maggie’s professional background is in bodywork, massage therapy, and Somatic Experiencing® and she has been providing Deep Tissue Therapy, Shiatsu, Acupressure, Medical Qigong, and injury rehab in California since 2008.
Her personal interests include the study and practice of Chinese and Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, Daoism and Qigong, both the Western and Eastern-mystical sciences of the nervous system, the art of the conscious marriage, yoga, dance, and being in nature.

Mark works out of a private practice in downtown Asheville and via Skype with clients who live out of the area. Mark’s work draws upon experiences in social work, Rolf Movement Integration, Rolfing® Structural Integration, yoga, pilates, continuum movement, Somatic Experiencing®, and Organic Intelligence®. Mark is currently pursuing a graduate degree from Appalachian State University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
Mark feels his gifts as a bodyworker are better understood and greatly enhanced by the Organic Intelligence protocol. Personally, Mark feels like Organic Intelligence provides an avenue for meaning-making and enjoys creating art through the OI lens.
A long time social justice activist, Rebecca came to healing arts as a way to support individuals and communities to build resilience and resolve trauma to shape and sustain movements toward equity, dignity, and vitality for all peoples. With a professional background in theater, circus arts, and arts education, Rebecca especially delights in using play and creativity as tools for transformation.
Newly relocated to the Seattle area from the Sonoran desert, Rebecca cultivates embodied mindfulness while orienting to the movement of water, the shape of trees, and other elements in nature. Lately, she particularly enjoys catching glimpses of wild rabbits and sea mammals.

Martin has worked with the Feldenkrais Method® in personal sessions through touch (Functional Integration®) and with groups (Awareness through Movement®), while deepening his understanding through NLP, Ericksonian hypnosis, focusing, Somatic Experiencing®, and Organic Intelligence.
Through the 3-year Embodied Life Mentorship Program with Russell Delman, a combination of Feldenkrais, Focusing, Meditation and Nonviolent Communication, he deepened his experience in Mindfulness and Compassion.
Through Aikido he found SEITAI Noguchi, a Japanese Method to support the body’s inherent energies and impulses for self-healing. He is teaching SEITAI Groups in his DOJO and supports his teacher Unsho Sensei to bring more awareness to this work in Europe.
Martin’s hobbies are aquarelle painting and hiking.
Committed to the OI work, Martin mentors students in the Istanbul HEARTraining in Turkey and promotes and coordinates the first HEARTraining in Switzerland, which will take place in his new SHINGENKI DOJO in Arlesheim, close to Basel.
