Over the past 20 years Charles has deepened his knowledge of the mindbody and studied systems of trauma release including somatic experiencing, various systems of breath work and a host of healing modalities. Most importantly, he studied with a Japanese healing Master and an Indian healing master, he has also studied biodynamic cranio-sacral therapy, qi gong and inner alchemy. For 5 years Charles was pulled as if by a strong magnet into deep meditation for more than 10 hours a day. All of his work is informed by the meditation Vipassana that was passed down by Buddha. As Charles’ heart continues to blossom he finds that he has a profound capacity to help others heal, awaken to their hearts and become more intimate with their true nature.
Charles has trained hundreds of psychologists, counselors, and others in the helping professions in the healing of trauma, over diverse cultures in Europe, India, Asia and Africa. He made a huge impact in the healing of the people of Myanmar after the cyclone killed 140 000 people and 2 million lost their homes. He trained more than three hundred volunteers to go back into their villages to help those that were traumatized. The Archbishop of Myanmar, his two bishops and a hundred priests and nuns also participated in the training, learning the simple and effective self-regulation tools that he shares in his book “The Alchemist’s Way”. Having experienced the power of the work, the Archbishop was instrumental in making the 18-month program happen.
Charles has developed The Hara Health Exercises that are practical and easy to do to help people transmute stress, trauma and negative emotions, improve performance and enrich their quality of life. He also teaches a two-year Practitioner Training in Europe and holds life changing healing sessions and meditation retreats.
