"Dr. Schillinger’s presentation at our conference was motivational, insightful, provocative and inspiring. Doctors gained a directional compass toward better understanding their patients and themselves."

Dr. Leslie Hewitt

"There are many life coaches and healers, but none with the repertoire or deep wisdom that Dr. Mark has. He’s the most experienced, expansive teacher and coach I’ve ever had. His RIGHT Way method will assist you and your family to clear old patterns and beliefs to allow you to enjoy your life more.
I was very impressed by the dedication and passion that Dr. Mark brought to his subject of Raising Healthy Boys. His presentation was thoughtful and engaging, the opposite of your typical lecture. In fact, it was not only thought-provoking, but sensitive and funny! I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Mark work his magic. It was an honor to experience.”

RIGHT Way to for Families to Handle Stress and Anxiety
We live in a culture that causes adults and teens to experience overwhelming amounts of work and school stress, and that also distracts them with devices that keep them focused on social media, endless entertainment and over-the-top commercialism. Our shared ancestral tribal wisdom teachers us that in order for families to be able to successfully adapt to the challenges of life, they must know how to remain calm and to keep their focus on having more caring and cooperative relationships. This workshop shows families how to relax quickly, and how to work together to thrive, both individually, and as a family.

Dr. Mark Teaching at The New Living Expo
"I cannot express how much I appreciated your presentation to our Rite of Passage kids and their mentors. The things you shared and the exercises you did truly captured the essence of our intention in the youngsters becoming young adults.

I know that the questions and exercises you posed for the kids were ones that will stay with them as they encounter challenges in school, at home and in life in general. By moving them toward truly examining who they are, and the values they hold, you touched the core of the dilemma kids find themselves in so much of the time.

You were a great example to me, and your wisdom is truly invaluable."

Pat Palmer
