About Me

Mark Forstater

I am a film, TV, radio and audio producer as well as the author of  five non-fiction books. My most famous film production is Monty Python and The Holy Grail, but I have also made twenty other films over the past 30 years.

I have written five books and audios on philosophy and spirituality, including The Spiritual Teachings of Yoga, The Spiritual Teachings of The Tao, The Spiritual Teachings of  Marcus Aurelius and The Living Wisdom of Socrates and  produced an audio of the famous Chinese classic the Tao Te Ching, read by Sir Nigel Hawthorne.

I was born in Philadelphia, USA, and moved to England in 1964 to attend Manchester University. After graduating from Temple University, Philadelphia in 1965 he returnedI came back to the UK and have lived in London ever since. After attending the London Film School I began making films in 1969.

My interest in spiritual matters began in the early 1970s when I was introduced to the works of Confucius, Mencius, Lao Tzu and Chuang Tzu. I was immediately inspired by Chinese philosophy, in particular Taoism. I am a member of the British Taoist Association, a group which aims to bring the authentic teachings of Taoism to the West.

My self-cultivation practices include meditation, yoga, tai chi, as well as massage and self-massage. I am currently researching a new book on longevity. The Age Of Anxiety is the first Guided Meditation that I have produced.

I have been married twice, and have four children and two grandchildren.
