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 six-year AFL footballer, Bunn was recruited from East Doncaster, Victoria, and captained the Fitzroy under 19s before playing 30 senior games for the Fitzroy Football Club between 1990 and 1992. He was runner-up to Scott Clayton in the 1990 best and fairest (his debut season) having played just 17 games. After two injury-affected seasons, he was drafted by the Hawthorn Football Club in 1993. He played 23 senior games, including one final, and won another two reserve best and fairest awards (he won one at Fitzroy also). He mainly played through the midfield and as a backman.

In the 1990s, Bunn learnt Transcendental Meditation and completed an honours degree in exercise physiology and formal training in Maharishi Ayurveda.

Using a 'Best of East and West' philosophy, he has spent the last 20 years as a corporate health and performance speaker, specializing in natural health, business performance, Ayurvedic medicine, consciousness and the secrets of the world's healthiest and longest-living people. 

In 2010, Bunn wrote 'Ancient Wisdom for Modern Health'— the simple, timeless secrets of health and happiness – and in 2017 was appointed the CEO of the David Lynch Foundation of Australia.[1]

Bunn currently lives in Melbourne, Australia.
