Owen Marcus. Men, Mindfulness & Somatic psychotherapy
For more than 40 years, Owen Marcus has explored and developed programs that bring together mindfulness, somatic psychotherapy, and the science of emotional physiology. After healing challenges of his dyslexia and Asperger’s Syndrome, he realized his relationship skills were lacking. Identifying his resistance to working with men as his next challenge, he dove into creating his first men’s group at his clinic in Scottsdale, AZ in 1995.

Unsatisfied with the status quo, Owen began expanding the model of men’s groups, incorporating what he saw working in corporate trainings and in his clinic. Men embraced this new model — it’s a model that is natural for men’s ways of experiencing and expressing emotions.
His group and this new model was the focus of the documentary About Men. His book, Grow Up: A Man’s Guide to Masculine Emotional Intelligence lays out how to complete the nine stages of emotional maturation for boys and men.
As the Director of Education at EVRYMAN, Owen, along with his co-founders, continues to develop effective ways to use emotions and physiology as tools to create fulfilling relationships and purposeful lives.
