About The Teacher

The initiator and director of Earth Awareness and architect of the Nature Temple, he is the master mind behind it all. Mark is a multi-talented person with great vision and a proactive attitude. As an extraordinary artist he is engaged with creating beauty in all its diversity, which is unmistakably found everywhere around the centre. For 13 years he and Maya are organizing countless events and retreats. His teachers came from many different shamanic cultures, but above all the Huichol, the Shuar and the Shipibo traditions. After a full-time cycle of initiation into medicine plants and by collaborating intensively with many wisdom keepers, Mark has an incredible understanding about the use of sacred plants as a tool for transformation. He is an inspirational speaker, a marvellous musician, a powerful chanter and a resourceful lead-facilitator during the retreats. He proved himself being an authentic bridge between the ancient knowledge and the modern Western culture.

    Mark has been my spiritual teacher during the days that i joined a retreat at the nature temple in holland. I experience him as cheerful, from the heart and centered. I love his music and voice. The temple he build together with Maya is a masterpiece, which shows great talent. His passion for global awakening, activited me. He inspired me to join a group in my town for saving the trees.

To give my ego a break from all these construction projects. Layth
