In The Beginning:
Markabadi was born and raised in Manchester, England. After a chance meeting with a spiritual teacher at age 14, Mark began his inner exploration through meditation and philosophical investigation. He went on to red two degrees in Psychology focusing on health as well as multiple diplomas in Holistic and complementary medicine.
While studying Psychology, Markabadi observed a gap in the curriculum, the holistic nature of being was missing. Applying research techniques he dove into the study of complementary holistic therapy techniques, including reflexology, nutrition, aromatherapy and deep tissue massage. Markabadi joined a research institute exploring the physics of energy medicine. Working with this center he travelled to India and began presenting at scientific conferences across the globe. Markabadi hosted conferences and workshops in Singapore, South Africa and USA. He spent 10 years researching the electromagnetic nature of wellbeing. Around the same time he also began teaching meditation and spiritual life coaching.
Along the way he realised his ability to disseminate intricate theory in a fun, entertaining and creative way. He is a born stage performer, making the complex simple and exciting. His passion for the truth and reality comes through in his live performances and now his writings. Having lectured at international conferences on energy medicine and holistic integrated health, he was invited to host several conferences and teach on the new module in Energy Medicine, part of the Masters in Wellness at RMIT University in Australia.
Markabadi also developed a unique integrative holistic platform called Psychapressure, providing space for people to shift their non-serving habit patterns. This is an interactive journey into the person’s pain to allow them to ‘burn in the fires of change’. Its principles include: there is nothing to fix, simple self acceptance, honoring your emotions and surrendering to the truth of who you are.

In 2008 Markabadi began to collate his research on Science, Spirituality and Self. He’s an expert on the interactive nature of the body’s energy systems and at maximising change through a multileveled therapy practice. With a great interest in how space resonates with Human health, happiness and wellbeing. In November 2012 after many years of working, Markabadi published his first book ‘evolve’. “It was difficult”, says Markabadi, “to know what to leave out. I have so much to share and I’m realising more and more daily. Evolve is a handbook for well being, it embodies the principles of complete happiness, freeing people from the thoughts of who they should be, so that they can be themselves!” – Take a look inside his book
In 2014 Markabadi moved to California, United States to connect with community and build structures to support and serve wellbeing. He has been involved deeply in event production and continues to bring people together around the common goal of community support and service. He produced 5000 person Yoga festivals as well as small 500 person gatherings. He ran social and environmental justice campaigns for non profits, as well as cultural festivals and online conferences.
In 2020 Markabadi began a live online interview show exploring the effects of COVID on luminaries and wisdom keepers. He conducted over 100 1hr interviews. While conducting these interviews he further realized the benefits of how enquiry serves to offer a healing space for people. Remembering the key Carl Jung said “The greatest gift we can give anyone is the space to be heard”.
