Mark is the source. A seer, with unusual insight learned, and burned into him by the mountains he climbed, the friends he lost there, and eventually the experience of coming down. Life in the shadow of those peaks, without climbing as life’s central theme imposed exploration and evolution to eventually manifest as Gym Jones. As in the mountains, he asserts that all growth and change originates in the mind. This is primary. The body is a tool of self-exploration, never the point itself. Mark is our guide. He is teacher, and student, inseparable from Gym Jones.
