Mark was born in 1957. From early on he has been fascinated by the world’s spiritual traditions. His interests have taken him to India, the USA, and Germany.
After many years of therapeutic and academic training Mark left the scholarly world behind. The influence of Asian mysticism and spirituality, along with the musical traditions of India have turned his life around.
Transpersonal Psychotherapy (TP) is based on the insight that all human conflicts are driven by the psyche’s innate attempt to heal itself. Therefore TP’s attempt is to induce, reinforce, and support processes of transformation in all its facets instead of pathologizing or marginalizing certain forms that do not fit the cultural agenda.
After Mark left his academic work behind he increasingly focussed on his longtime passion of being a musician. He has been studying the North Indian Bamboo Flute ‚Bansuri‘ with the Indian Bansuri Maestro R.K. Bikramjit Singh for several years and is now pursuing devotional meditative music based on Indian classical Ragas, as well as ambient shamanic styles in his collaborations with Arizona based Steve Roach and Byron Metcalf.
