Problems Start in the Mind!

We look outside ourselves for answers because we don’t understand our minds, which is where problems start. Let me teach you, your family or organization how to turn inward, where the fundamental solutions are found.

My perspective and programming are singularly unique. We can engage privately, or I’d be delighted to deliver a life-changing message through a keynote address, corporate or community event, or transformative multi-day retreat. Got something in mind? Let’s connect and make it happen!

“Dr. Pirtle led me back to myself, where I reclaimed my natural resilience and serenity. Mark played an integral role in my recovery from severe PTSD. I highly recommend him and his work.”

Is Your Story Making You Sick?

I am honored to share the documentary I produced, Is Your Story Making You Sick?, a film that illustrates the power of the mind-body connection and challenges viewers to consider how their fixations affect their emotions, health, and the health of their family, and the larger world in which we all live. Join me in this mission to raise our individual and collective awareness!
