Mark F. Rossbach, MA


A short introduction

Mark Rossbach is an Anthropologist and Jungian analyst, currently finishing his post-graduation degree in Analytical Psychology. He has a bachelor's degree in Social Sciences from PUC-SP (Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo) and a master's degree in Anthropology from the University of Lisbon. His masters dissertation explored a phenomenological approach to the mind-body problem, through what he called 'meta-experiences' in the practice of the Japanese internal martial art called Taiki-Ken. The role of martial arts as self-development tools has always interested him, leading to over seventeen years of martial arts practice, of which over five years as a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Mark currently lives in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, working as a Jungian analyst and meditation teacher.


Self-cultivation, individuation, and the mind-body problem

If the fundamental layer of reality is understood to dissolve the seeming metaphysical differences between mind and matter, psyche and soul, then bodily practice becomes a direct means for psychological and spiritual development. Such development, in turn, conveys the direct experience of the unity between mind and matter, psyche and body, self and world. This is the central point of this short essay by anthropologist, Jungian analyst, and martial artist Mark Rossbach.
