Spiritual Psychotherapist Mark Lersch joins Sister Jenna on to the America Meditating Radio Show!

His approach to healing is influenced by his own personal journey. Mark has studied a variety of spiritual paths and approaches and his interest is in assisting people in finding their own unique spiritual path in life.
