Welcome to The Seekers Forum

Self-realization is the greatest calling of a human lifetime. The philosophical instruction to know yourself is the heart of what we do in The Seekers Forum. Through the practice of self-inquiry, we come to know ourselves in order to cultivate happier, more productive, and authentic lives. The Seekers Forum provides a place for people from all walks of life to 'Inquire Within', a place for deep dialogue, learning, and self-exploration.

Come share your journey with us,

Alfredo, Spain

“It’s not easy to find a group of people that are interested in the same things, in psychology, spirituality, and connecting to the depths of our experience.”

Gary, Canada

“We’re sharing this journey and this sense of purpose for a troubled world that needs clarity and nurturing and kindness.”

Nikki, USA

“I love having the freedom to share my thoughts and feelings in an uncensored way. Having a space where we can slow down, reflect, and learn is a huge gift.”

Emma, Canada

“Inquire Within gives me confidence in understanding who I am and supports me in being more true to myself on a daily basis.”

“While I have a wonderful family and great friends, seldom do we engage in discussions covering topics such as those Mark explores in The Seekers Forum. One of the miracles of modern technology is that we can connect so intimately with members from around the world, to share what’s deep in our hearts and souls."

— Pam, USA
