What is Holistic Life Coaching?

Holistic Life Coaching takes traditional life coaching to a much deeper and more inclusive level. The holistic foundation allows you to integrate, focus, and empower your whole self on health, healing, and the realization of your goals, dreams, and desires. Traditional life coaching primarily relies on willpower to make things happen. Holistic Life Coaching recognizes that willpower alone is not enough to effectively create lasting positive change. Mental willpower alone represents a mere 5% of your mind's true potential. Holistic Life Coaching puts you in touch with the other 95% of your potential, and beyond. Working with your deeper potential frees you of the inner struggle, fear, conflict and resistance that so often accompanies the change, healing, and transformation process. Holistic Life Coaching leads you to positive, lasting results in less time and with far less difficulty along the way. The doorway to healing and transformation is opened for you to truly create, live, and enjoy your life to its fullest potential.  


Coaching DirectionHolistic Life Coaching ensures you do not end up striving to reach your goal only to realize it has come at the cost of undermining and sacrificing other key areas of your life. This is a common occurrence. When reference to the whole is lost, fragmentation and imbalance pay a visit in one form or another, both inwardly and outwardly. When imbalance sets in, you become lost in your attachment to your goal and lose your connection to wholeness. One of Mark's greatest skills as a Holistic Life Coach is helping you retain connectedness to the whole, both within yourself and the different areas of your life. By having the holistic foundation guiding you each step of the way, you can enjoy reaching your goals in a way that serves to support you in all areas of your life.

The Downside of Dieting: Statistically, 95% of all diets fail. Most dieters experience losing 10% of their starting weight in 6 to 12 months. Looking farther out we find that the majority of people who go on a diet end up regaining all the weight they lost and more within 3 years. Why is this case? Why can't a person simply reach and maintain their target weight through changes in eating? Because diets invariably fail the dieter. Diets alone are ill-equipped at taking into account the all-important subjective factors that influence and ultimately determine our long-term actions, motivations, drives, desires, and behaviors. The relationship we have to our body, and to food, health, eating, and exercise is deeply subjective. We live out that relationship each day and it becomes our experience. 

The Key to Successful Weight Loss: Make no mistake about it, if your intention is to lose weight and keep it off, you need to reinvent your relationship to food, your body, health, and ultimately, to yourself. Fortunately, there is a way to do this where you do not have to reinvent the entire wheel. The BodyLight Holistic Weight Loss Coaching program has provided successful results to thousands of people. The program has undergone 24 years of development and continuous refinement.
