Some thoughts from folks who have enjoyed listening to my recordings, joining my live sessions, and/or working with me in some way. I share these in hopes that people will find inspiration in their words like I have. Please contact me if you’re interested in sharing a testimonial.

Practicing with Mark during a live stream or listening to his recordings on Insight Timer is a real pleasure. I appreciate the diversity in his teachings and his ability to glean wisdom from various religious and spiritual traditions. He’s wise, compassionate, musically talented, humorous, and has a peaceful, calming voice. Mark is as refreshing as a nature walk through a spring forest. Give him a listen and I believe you’ll agree. -Kimberley Andriessen, Toronto, Ontario

I like the idea of practicing more limitlessness. If it weren’t for what I’ve learned and experienced here in the past three years, I would never have imagined I could experience limitlessness or breathing energy into my fatigue to give myself energy or to breathe refreshment into my work perspective or travel back in time to visit my timeless Self. -Michelle T.

Review of the course on the five spiritual faculties: A really useful, engaging, enjoyable & enlightening presentation from Mark and a great addition to both his collection and IT’s courses library. He has a particular talent for linking the classic texts and scriptures to our modern times, of breaking down what can, on the surface, seem like lofty and out of reach concepts and applying them to real life. These 5 Faculties are cornerstones of good mindful practice and should be explored by all intent on delving beyond the fluff. -Jude T, Belfast, N. Ireland

My absolute favorite bad review: I’ve never known such a monotone teacher who uses so much pseudo-profound nonsense! Surely a little charisma and enthusiasm would be useful, the teacher is so clinical, detached, distant, insincere and unengaging. I really tried to get into this, but after 6 minutes of inane waffle that wasn’t even wisdom I had concluded it wasn’t going to get better. My reply: World class terrible review, ______! Kudos! I’m always available to help decipher these teachings- which aren’t mine, per se, but ones I’ve found useful. I’ll never claim profundity, nor charisma, but I must take a stand on my sincerity. That said, you are entitled to your impressions. God bless you, sir, and may another teacher bear the torch of your enlightenment. He was commenting on my first, and kickass course Mindfulness and the Divine Abodes.
