Mark Bunn (born 24 October 1970) is a former Australian rules footballer, a natural-health coach specialising in ayurvedic medicine and the author of 'Ancient Wisdom for Modern Health'.


A 6-year AFL footballer, Bunn was recruited from East Doncaster, Victoria, and captained the Fitzroy under 19s before making 30 senior appearances for the Fitzroy Football Club between 1990 and 1992 [1]. Playing 17 games in his first season he was runner-up to Scott Clayton in the 1990 best and fairest.

At the end of 1992, he left Fitzroy and was drafted by the Hawthorn Football Club. [2]. From 1993 to 1995 he played 23 senior games, including the drawn 1994 Elimination final[3]. He played mainly through the midfield and as a backman.

Post-football, Bunn completed an Honours degree in Exercise Physiology and formally trained in Ayurvedic medicine Maharishi Ayurveda.[4]

He is now a speaker and author in the areas of natural health, Ayurveda, ancient wisdom, Eastern medicine and the new consciousness revolution. [5]. In 2010, Bunn authored the book ‘Ancient Wisdom for Modern Health’ — the simple, timeless secrets of health and happiness - the first of a three book 'Ancient Wisdom' series. [6]

Since 2017, Bunn has also been the CEO of the David Lynch Foundation of Australia. [7].

The Foundation is part of the international David Lynch Foundation and raises money to teach Transcendental Meditation to disadvantaged and at-risk people including those suffering PTSD (war vets, police), domestic violence, severe trauma, and homelessness through to underprivileged youth. [8].
