“We are spiritual beings having a human experience” Teillard de Chardin’s
Mark was born and raised on the East Coast. After college he worked for AmeriCares who sent Mark to Rome to meet Mother Teresa to seek her intervention in the Sudanese civil war and allow supplies to reach the people. This led Mark to Yale Divinity school and a doctorate in Inter-faith studies. Mark became a pastor, earned a doctorate, got married, raised a family, and got divorced – then lost his way. Pain is a great teacher and Mark is a great student. After the Church, Mark became an entrepreneur and salesman, took up Bikram Yoga and hiking, and co-parented his three kids as a single dad. When a long-term sales position ended in 2017, he took off to Martha’s Vineyard, stood by the sea, and realized his new calling – massage therapy – for which he successfully trained and developed into Dharma Massage Therapy and Dharma Equine Bodywork. Mark completes his therapeutic offerings by including Dharma Spirit Coaching. Highly credentialed and hugely talented, Mark is passionate about helping people.
A devoted dad, avid gardener, environmentalist and a force of nature when it comes to the great outdoors, Mark is happiest when helping you light up from within and helping Everybody to feel better.
