Join a vibrant community dedicated to the pursuit of a more awakened and meaningful life through the practice of self-inquiry. Since ancient times, philosophers, psychologists, mystics, and clergy have heralded the message to know thyself as a path to insight and realization. As it says in the Tao Te Ching:

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power…”

Wisdom and self-mastery are what we seek. With them comes the ability to live a more authentic, productive, and happy life. The Seekers Forum provides a space for ongoing practice of these time-honored traditions within a global community of fellow seekers.

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power…”


“No one saves us but ourselves.
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path.”

"Your heart is the size of the ocean.
Go find yourself in its hidden depths."

"Who looks outside, dreams;
who looks inside, awakes."

“Know thyself, for once we know ourselves,
we may learn to how to care for ourselves.”

~ Socrates

"I have always been a seeker and still am,
but I stopped asking the books and the stars.
I started listening to the teaching of my soul."

~ Rumi

"If you would be a real seeker after truth,
it is necessary that at least once in your life
you doubt, as far as possible, all things."

~ Rene Descartes

"Every journey has a secret destination
of which the traveler is unaware."

~ Martin Buber

“Ask, and it will be given to you;
seek, and you will find; knock,
and it will be opened to you."

~ Matthew 7:7

“The material presented each month in The Seekers Forum is rich, vibrant, and often hits a nerve ending that pushes one to further exploration. What Mark presents isn’t tidily packaged with a bright bow – rather, his words are upfront, raw, and vital to the current evolutionary expansion. In the Q&A periods, Mark asks questions with both precision, gentleness and, at times, bluntness, allowing the participant to look at the reality of the situation they’re describing and broaden their understanding.”


“Mark has created a wonderful, warm, and inviting “space” to investigate what really does matter and how each of us can weave those revelations into meaningful and fulfilling work in our lives. I came across Mark’s work two years ago while I was writing my way through healing from breast cancer. I had listened in on a webinar and felt as though Mark was speaking directly to me. By the end of each talk, I feel I’ve been lifted gracefully and gently to a place of deeper understanding. Not only is Mark a gifted speaker, he addresses the complexities of human emotion beautifully and with such compassion.”


“I will be forever grateful to Mark for creating The Seekers Forum!
Each talk I’ve listened to gives me a new perspective, something to ponder, a treasure that propels me forward on my own path. In my darkest times, the Forum has been a source of light and hope where I can share my deepest thoughts and questions and not be judged. Thank you!”


“I am so grateful to have met you, Mark, and the other members of the Seeker’s Forum. The Forum has helped catapult me into writing as a way to better understand my emotions and thought processes, and to explore past traumas as well as current difficulties. I look forward to it every month.”
