The Spiritual Teacher: Helping People Heal Themselves


Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. This is the role of a spiritual teacher. For internationally recognized shaman, Mordechai (Mark) David Naseck, the mission is to “help people heal themselves.”

The Worldwide Journey of a Spiritual Teacher

Mark, also known as Namasteman, has followed his mission across disciplines, serving as a teacher, healer, shaman, yogi, mystic, reiki master, Sufi, and holistic health and business consultant. His worldwide quest for spiritual enlightenment has brought him to study Qigong, Native American medicine, Kabbalah, Sufi and other traditions under various world masters.

Sparking Inner Healing

At the early age of 21, Mark began the process of inner healing. At the time, he kept getting bloody noses and went to the doctor where he was prescribed medicine to cure the symptom. This got him thinking… Why cure the symptom, instead of curing the problem? Mark then ventured to the root of the problem and based off his own success with a raw food diet, he began running a holistic food center. Since then, his journey through the healing arts, yoga and meditation have brought him to present at top institutions and resorts across the globe. Through his teachings, we may all learn that the solution is truly within.
