At a time when authentic words of wisdom are in short supply, there is one single clear, wise voice. It is the voice of our own heart.


Light Up the World is a collection of poetry and prose to inspire new ways of being in ourselves and in the world. It is a timely contemplation that points to the truth of who we are and what that means for each of us and for humanity as a whole.

Both visionary and lucid, it is a reflection on a universal process of emergence and coming to understanding. It is a call to follow our hearts in order to build a kinder, more equitable and sustainable world for all.


With wisdom and insight to support our awakening and live more deeply connected and empowered lives, Light Up the World encourages us all on the path of greater vision towards peace, compassion and loving service.


The journey starts within.





Mark surfs, hikes, and plays guitar and piano.
