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.

After receiving classical training on the violin from age 8 through 14, followed by guitar playing and singing, his musical focus has shifted again at age 42: During a deep vision quest, Mark felt encouraged to take up the North Indian bamboo flute 'Bansuri' at a rather late age for picking up a new instrument. He is now studying with the Indian Bansuri Maestro R.K. Bikramjit Singh.

In his work with groups and individuals as a clinical psychotherapist and in private practice, Mark embraces the philosophy of Transpersonal Psychotherapy. He facilitates breathwork and shamanic rituals in which he uses music and non-ordinary states of consciousness to create a space of ceremony and healing.

Mark's music and work is offered hoping to make a small contribution to raising consciousness: May we all learn to face our shadows, honor our skills, and live in harmony with each other and the universe.
