  • Description

    My name is Mark Zimmermann. I am from Buffalo New York. I have a bachelors degree in philosophy, and have a certification to teach yoga through the Sivananda organization. I also have a TEFL certificate for teaching English. I am a well traveled early riser with many hobbies including: playing the drums, cooking, reading literature (especially Russian literature), studying philosophy and psychoanalysis, drawing, tea, french, spirituality, eastern thought, meditation, and photography. At the moment I am living in California going to graduate school for counseling psychology. I am looking to travel to South Korea this Summer.
    My goal in life is to be a therapist with a foundation in various schools of psychoanalysis. I am interested in combining psychoanalytic practice/theory with that of yoga, and other schools of thought.

  • What skills do you have?

    I am an early riser. I love to organize and clean. I am a certified yoga instructor. I was in the military for a little while, and so I keep things real tidy and nice. I enjoy interacting with people and feel that my wide range of interests allows me to connect with many different people on various levels. I am great with kids. I have a niece and nephew who I have babysat regularly ( now ages 4 and 6) so I can handle diapers, feeding, etc. I'm open to trying and learning new things.

  • What else ...

    I think the world needs people who are simply willing to listen to others and not judge them, with the hope that such behavior will allow other individuals to be comfortable with who they are, thus giving them the courage to confront and change those characteristics which are 'negative' or 'self-destructive.' I want to help people and connect with them through the honesty of my writing, my willingness to listen, and my drive to share a passion for obtaining knowledge and wisdom.
