“Ah…midlife; divorce, empty nest, hormones, gravity, all present new learning opportunities, but also come with annoying, insecure little voice. That voice took up space in my mind and kept me from moving forward—the same recording over and over. But I learned to quiet that voice. After Mark’s class, I found out that I am not at fault. I can challenge the voice and reframe new scripts. He taught me how to put a positive spin on an old story. New doors are opening because now I have the tools to open them. This class will change you. It is not simple, it is not easy, but it has focused me on a new horizon, a new idea of me, and my future. I’m still in process, waiting to see how this will unfold, but gratefully, the road is paved, and has fewer potholes than before.” F. Nowlin

"My wife and I attended your Skillfully Aware workshop at Miraval last week. I have been working on my own awareness, and studying many guru’s over the past 10 years. I have also been trying to lead the education and transformation of a company with training in self-awareness practices. I must say that your simple 45-minute summary of mindfulness and meditation was the best short, to the point and clear presentation of the topic I have ever seen or read. So I ordered your program to learn more."

“I met Mark at a lady’s luncheon where he did a brief talk and meditation. I was so blown away by the experience that I wanted to take his class. I laugh when I think about it, but I’ve taken SkillfullyAware five times now! Each time I took the class I saw more and went deeper. It took me 2 years to convince my husband to take the classes himself. I cannot tell you how much our own, already loving relationship, has improved! I had no idea how much my own thoughts, fixations & old habits were negatively influencing my life. Now I have influence to positively impact my life, as well as the lives of the people I love. My kids recognize the change in me too. I can only say, I wish I had taken these classes when I was in my twenties. The benefits are immeasurable and as Mark says, he wants you to be happy! I can’t say enough about Mark and his classes.” Margie

“Mark Pirtle has a deep understanding of spiritual growth and the stages of development. His SkillfullyAware process is a developmental roadmap for the average person. I’ve done a ton of reading on the topic of self-help and spiritual growth. Mark’s work is the most straightforward, understandable, and more important, actionable information I’ve come across. I apply his the “tools of transformation” with tremendous positive impact on my health and well-being. Mark is a fabulous coach and mentor who has the ability to meet people where they are and provide guidance that is appropriate for their stage of development.” Rufus Woods, Retired Newspaper Editor
