As a passionate life-strategist, Mark has fast developed a reputation for not only helping with the healing of depression, anxiety and addiction and the restoration of mind, body and soul, but for creating lasting ‘Spiritual Level’ changes in people. Spirituality is when we start looking inward, and it is easier said than done!

He moves past the confines of traditional mindset in mainstream therapeutic practices, and helps people find meaning in their lives, and actualize their true potential from the Stories and personas they have created. Mark will always ask you who you are without your story. From this vulnerable and open position, real change can happen.

“Stuckness is not about staying stuck and impotent, or settling for less in a life with one dis-ease or another. Rather  it’s about learning from your past and then, developing your higher self. In that order. It’s about living better than well!”

Mark L Lockwood has a passion for the psychology of how people think and why and more importantly has a deep love for healing, theology, psychology, spirituality and Christianity in its truest form and believes all (no-exclusions) paths, traditions and religions lead to God as you understand Him. Mark has thousands of hours of therapy time with patients from all spheres of life, dealing with trauma, addiction, ED, depression, performance enhancement and the like.

Marks study of human behaviour, self reliance and alternative addiction recovery and human development over the past 20 years have provided invaluable insights into how people think, function and behave.

Disease, depression, addiction and compulsion, emotional damage and trauma, shifted value systems and distorted sets of values as an adult can be healed, restored and renewed at our wellness retreats. “It is not enough to just talk about your feelings, you can’t be lead around by how you feel all your life, it goes deeper than that sooner or later, deep to the core of peoples value systems, of who they are and why they are who they are. It is this understanding that shapes the kind of inner temple or structure one builds within throughout life.

When we deeply, soulfully learn how to remove the fear and distortions in our thinking, feeling and behaviour and become aware, then accept and then act on who we really are, we begin to see miracles manifest in our lives”. It is a miracle to watch the process repeat itself for anyone who asks for and wants the life changes. No one need stay stuck!

If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.
